FORM I290B – APPEAL
Depending on your case type, Form I-290B, Notice of Appeal or Motion can be used to file an appeal. An Appeal is a request for the AAO review of the presumed erroneous conclusion of law or fact in USCIS’ decision. Unlike motions which request a review by the same authority that issued the decision, Appeals ask a different authority to review the decision.
A perfect example of when you would file an Appeal is if USCIS denies your N-400 application despite you meeting all the stated requirements.
Our fee structure is unique to us as we strive to tailor our services for each client individually. We adapt price standards that are capable of fluctuating for each client. Clients may retain us for one or all the above steps/services of an I-290B Appeal.
We are happy to customize a proposal for you during a consultation. Please see the below information.
