If USCIS has issued a denial, there are still viable pathways you can pursue.
Your options include:
- Filing an appeal or a motion to reconsider the decision based on the merits of the case.
- Requesting to reopen the case with new evidence or facts.
Should you opt to appeal, your case will be re-evaluated by either the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) or the USCIS Administrative Appeals Office (AAO), where an independent review will result in a new decision.
Choosing to file a motion means requesting that USCIS re-examine the initial decision to determine if it was correctly made. Deciding between filing a motion or an appeal necessitates consulting with an immigration lawyer who can help formulate an effective strategy.
