Appealing an Unfavorable Immigration Decision in Glendale, AZ
We hope that your immigration proceeds smoothly and you have a successful outcome. If at any point you receive an unfavorable decision, we may be able to file an appeal or motion for you.
Your notice of an unfavorable decision will state whether the decision can be appealed and where the appeal should be filed.
When we appeal a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) decision, we are asking a different “authority” or office to review the original decision to determine if the original unfavorable decision was based on errors made by the USCIS.
Motion to Reopen
A motion to reopen is when we ask the original office to reopen the case because we have new facts that could change the unfavorable decision.
Motion to Reconsider
A motion to reconsider is made to the original office when we believe their unfavorable decision was based on an “incorrect application of law or policy,” meaning we believe the reasoning behind their decision was not technically correct and because of that, they should not have been able to make an unfavorable decision.
Most of the time, unfavorable decisions are open to receiving motions to reopen or reconsider. This is not true for appeals, as some cases are not eligible for that action.
This is a brief explanation of a complex area of immigration law. Our immigration appeal immigration attorneys in Glendale, AZ will thoroughly review your case before determining what options you have and which approach can bring you the best possible outcome.

The Amount of Time You Have to Appeal an Immigration Decision Is Short
There is little time to prepare and present an appeal. Typically, we have 30 days from the date of the decision. If you have received an unfavorable decision, we recommend you contact an immigration appeal attorney immediately to get help in determining if you have a path forward, and if so, give them time to complete the work.
The decision should state if it is eligible for an appeal and how much time you have to appeal. Some decisions give you even less than 30 days to appeal.
If the decision is mailed to you, the USCIS adds 3 days to your appeal time to compensate for the notice’s time in transit.
Time to File a Motion
You are given the same amount of time to file a motion as you are to file an appeal. However, unlike an appeal, you might get an extension if the delay in filing was not of your doing.
