If you have had your application for immigration denied, you may feel like all hope of entering the U.S. is lost. This is not the case! You may still be able to appeal the decision on your immigration petition. It is important at this stage in your case to contact an experienced attorney to guide you through the process. They can help ensure that any option that is legally available to you is explored in order to increase your chances of success.
There are two different ways to file for immigration appeals. You may be able to get your case reopened or reconsidered through the Administrative Appeals Office (AAO) by filing your appeal within 30 days of the original decision and providing new supporting information for your petition. You may also consider petitioning through the Citizenship & Immigration Service (USCIS), who may either decide to reverse the original decision, maintain the original decision, or return the case to the original office to be re-reviewed.
A lawyer can help you decide which option may be best for you depending on the circumstances of your case. Since the appeals process can be complex and involve a large amount of paperwork, it is extremely important to work with your attorney to ensure that all paperwork is filled out correctly and completely. Even the smallest mistake on a form can cause a delay, and if deadlines are not met your case may be dismissed altogether.
