Making a Successful Appeal

Among other things, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is concerned with moderating population and avoiding any threatening people from entering the country. Your goal needs to be to demonstrate that their decision to deny your application was in error. You will also need to explain what that error was. Having an aggressive legal professional on your side can help you make a compelling case in the pursuit of your interests.

Overturning an immigration decision can be pursued in one of two ways:

  • Appeal – Within 30 days of receiving the decision about your case, you will need to demonstrate that USCIS made an error when reviewing your application. By showing evidence of your need to be in the country and having correctly filled out the application, you will have a better chance at successfully immigrating.
  • Motion to reopen or reconsider – If new facts have come to light since the original application, you can file a motion to revisit your case and consider the new information. You may also make a case that the law was incorrectly applied to your case.

Receiving a Response

USCIS aims to have all motions resolved within 90 days, but it can take as long as 180 days. If you do not receive a response within that time frame, get the help of Wheatley Immigration Law, LLC to look into it. Our team can help you stay informed about your appeal process and can speak with the immigration department on your behalf.
