Approval Notice - Frequently Asked Questions


How can I appeal if my application for a duplicate notice is denied?

If your application is denied, you will receive a letter that will tell you why the application was denied. You may submit a motion to reopen or a motion to reconsider to the same office that made the unfavorable decision. By filing a motion, you are asking the office to reexamine or reconsider its decision.

  • A motion to reopen must state any new facts that would support your motion. You may be required to submit affidavits or other documentary evidence in support of these new facts
  • A motion to reconsider must establish that the decision was based on an incorrect application of law or Immigration policy, and further establish that the decision was incorrect based on the evidence in the file at the time the decision was made
