Immigration Appeals Austin Texas Immigration Attorney Nathaveth and AssociatesImmigration Appeals Law Firm

If you have received a denial notice from USCIS, you may be able to file an appeal or open a motion to reconsider the decision. The attorneys at Nanthaveth and Associates offer expert legal advice in immigration appeals and possess the thorough understanding of immigration policy that is required for appeals and motions.


When you file an appeal, you are asking either The Administrative Appeals Office (AAO) of USCIS or the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) of the U.S Department of Justice to review the original decision made on your case. When you file an appeal, it is mandatory that you provide an explanation of why you think the original decision was an error. In order to provide a complete and thorough explanation, it is recommended that applicants submit briefs with their Notice of Appeal (Form I-290B). With the professional experience and legal expertise of our immigration attorneys, we will provide a detailed and concise brief for your appeal.


Unlike an appeal, a motion does not involve the review of higher authorities. Rather, it is a request for the original decision maker in the case to review their decision. There are two types of motions that an applicant can file after receiving a denial notice – A motion to reopen and a motion to reconsider.

A motion to reopen requests that the original decision maker on your case reviews their original decision due to new evidence or changed circumstances within the case. When an applicant files a motion to reopen, they must provide the new evidence and/ or circumstances, along with a through explanation of why it should affect the original decision of the case.

A motion to reconsider, which requests a review of the original decision based on new or additional legal arguments. A motion to reconsider provides the opportunity to use newly discovered legislation and case studies to argue in favor of an applicant’s case.

The immigration attorneys at Nanthaveth and Associates possess the extensive knowledge of immigration law needed to help you with the appeals process.
