Q: How long does it take to determine if you’ll look into a case?
A: We will review the convicted individual’s letter to determine whether the case meets our criteria. This initial determination is made in generally fewer than 2 weeks.
If so, we will send a detailed questionnaire to the individual to complete. Review of a questionnaire takes more time due to the large volume of requests. Therefore, it may take several months before the Project screeners are able to decide whether or not to accept a case. Please be patient.
