How much does an appeal cost?
TPS can also be granted to non-citizens, as long as they meet the eligibility requirements. As of May 2021, approximately 300,000 foreign nationals residing in the U.S. benefited from TPS.
Becoming eligible for TPS will not affect you on applications such as political asylum in the U.S. or special immigrant juvenile status. If your asylum application is denied, you can still apply for TPS even if the basis of application was the same.
As of July 21, 2021, Venezuelans may be eligible for temporary protected status and file Form I-821, Application for Temporary Protected Status, online. This was communicated by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
USCIS clarified that Venezuelans can file 12 forms online, these will be available on the Forms Available for Online Filing page. In order for you to apply for this form, you must create an account with USCIS.
Advantages of an appeal
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) can deny green card applications filed by immigrants in the United States through a process known as adjustment of status.
The consequence of denial of adjustment is that the immigrant must leave the U.S. unless he or she has an immigration status that allows him or her to stay, such as a valid visa. But in most cases the immigrant must leave the country or deportation proceedings will be initiated against him or her.
Each immigrant, together with his or her attorney, if he or she has one, must evaluate which of the options applies to his or her particular case, taking into consideration the reason for the USCIS decision, which is notified in the letter notifying the denial.
It is requested by filling out Form I-290B Notice of Appeal or Motion within 30 calendar days of receiving the notice of denial. The agency that must respond is the Administrative Appeals Office (AAO).
When a foreign worker has been working in the U.S. on an H1B or L1 employment visa, he or she may be eligible to apply for permanent residency in the U.S. leading to the acquisition of a green card. This is done by filing Form I-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker.Under certain circumstances, USCIS could deny this I-140 petition leaving the employee perplexed about the next steps. We have outlined some options that can be explored in such a situation:
What happens if you are denied an appeal
How do I know that I can appeal the denial of a petition or application؟ Because the document in which the USCIS itself denies the petition will state whether or not the petition can be appealed and to whom the appeal must be filed.
It will also state the time limit that is available، which is generally 30 days from the date the decision was issued، not from the date the decision was received. However, it should be noted that this period may be shorter.
When to send the BIA the form to appeal؟ When appealing naturalization decisions or I-120 petitions of an alien relative. In these cases، the form to use is the EOIR-29.
In any case، do not worry too much about which document to fill out because in the communication of the denial of the application or petition in which it is stated whether it can be appealed or not there is also information about which form to fill out to make the appeal.
What is very important is to attach documentation and/or a written statement explaining with evidence and sufficiently why the USCIS decision is wrong. If you do not have all the documentation at that time، you can send the appeal and then you will send the papers when you have them.
