If your petition or application for immigration has been denied, you may think that there is nothing could do. This may not be the case, however, because you may have the ability to appeal the decision. With timeliness, proper paperwork, and the help of a knowledgeable attorney, you may be able to reverse the decision on your immigration petition. There are two types of immigration appeals:

Administrative Appeals Office

One appeal you may be able to make is for the Administrative Appeals Office (AAO) to reopen or reconsider your immigration application. This kind of appeal must be filed with the office that made the initial decision within 30 days of the original decision, and you must be able to provide new information to support your petition for an appeal.

Citizenship & Immigration Service

You may be able to file an appeal with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) as well. With this kind of appeal, one of three decisions can be made: agreement resulting in a reversal of decision; disagreement resulting in the affirmation of the original decision; return of the case to the original office for review.

The forms and procedures for either of these kinds of appeals can be very confusing, but accuracy and punctuality is vital. Any mistakes made on an appeal form could cause your request to be delayed, and if it ends up being submitted after the deadline, it will cause it to be dismissed altogether. So, if you are seeking to appeal a decision made on your immigration application, be sure that you have the counsel and representation of a qualified Miami immigration lawyer.
