What Happens If USCIS Makes A Wrong Decision? The Godoy Guarantee

If USCIS makes a wrong decision in a Godoy client’s case through no fault of the client, Godoy Law Office will make an administrative appeal at no additional attorney fee to our client. This is our Godoy Guarantee to our clients.

When U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) makes a legal mistake in their decision in our client’s immigration case, we will prepare an administrative appeal, an I-290B, motion to reopen or reconsider, at no additional attorney fee to our client, asking USCIS to reopen the case. Depending on the case, we could also appeal to the BIA – the Board of Immigration Appeals, which hears appeals from decisions made by other immigration judges.

FAQs About Form I-290B, Notice of Appeal or Motion

1. What can I use a Form 1-290B for?
Form I-290B, Notice of Appeal or Motion, is primarily used to file:

1. An appeal with the Administrative Appeals Office (AAO); or.
2. A motion with the USCIS office that issued the latest decision in your case

2. Is there an I-290B filing deadline?
You must file your appeal within 30 days of your denial – not the date you received the denial.

3. How long does an I-290B appeal take?
AAO typically takes about 6 months to 2 years to process your appeal.

4. What grounds can I use to file an appeal?
You can use an I-290B to file an appeal, motion to reopen or motion to reconsider.

5. Is an attorney required to process an I-290B appeal?
An immigration attorney is extremely helpful if you file an I-290B. These appeals are very complicated and have very strict deadlines and filing instructions.

If you think USCIS made a wrong decision in your case, it is important to have an experienced immigration attorney on your side. Godoy Law Office will evaluate your case as quickly as possible so that we can file a timely motion or appeal on your behalf.
