I-290B Motion to Reopen or Reconsider

When USCIS makes an unfavorable decision on your case, you may be able to appeal using the I-290B form. This may allow your case to be reopened, reconsidered, or both.

There is a difference between the two actions. Reopening a case happens when new facts supported by documentary evidence are presented which demonstrate eligibility at the time of filing the application or petition.

For USCIS to reconsider the case, you must prove that the decision was based on an incorrect application of law or policy and that the evidence submitted with the underlying application or petition required USCIS to approve your case.

Normally you are allowed 30 days from the date of USCIS’s decision to file, and having a lawyer prepare and file your Form I-290B can increase your chances of successfully reversing USCIS’s denial.

As a skilled immigration lawyer, Mr. Widman has the experience to help guide you through an I-290B appeal. He can help make sure that the I-290B has a meritorious basis and that it is supported by citations to appropriate statutes, regulations, case law, and USCIS policy.
