What to do If Green Card Denied? In the event of an application denial, you will receive a letter outlining the reasons for the decision. While appeals are not permissible, you do have the option to make a motion to reopen or a motion to reconsider to the same office responsible for the initial unfavorable ruling. This process allows you to request a reevaluation or reconsideration of the decision.
A motion to reopen should include:
- A clear statement of the new facts you intend to present if your case is reopened.
- Supporting evidence that substantiates your case.
On the other hand, a motion to reconsider must demonstrate:
- An erroneous application of immigration law or policy during the initial denial.
- The incorrectness of the decision based on the evidence within your application.
