Responding to a Notice of Intent to Deny
Why You Need a New Jersey Immigration Attorney
If the United States Citizenship & Immigration Services department (USCIS) believes that you are ineligible for a certain request, they will send you a formal statement called a Notice of Intent to Deny (NOID). To avoid a denial of your immigration petition, you must send a response in as little as a month. The USCIS will expect a well-drafted and accurate legal brief that concisely demonstrates the validity of your position.
If you have received an NOID, then you should retain an experienced New Jersey immigration lawyer to help you develop your response. At my firm, the Law Offices of Simone Bertollini, I offer
knowledgeable counsel and dedicated representation to those who need help with their immigration law matter. I have a unique perspective on your case, having been through the immigration system myself, and understand the importance of achieving successful results.
Reasons for an NOID
If you have received a NOID, it should state the grounds for which your request was denied.
Reasons for denial could include:
- You did not fully complete the application
- You did not provide enough proof that you have the required education or experience needed for the position you are trying to fill
- You applied for a nonimmigrant visa but not show enough proof that you intend to only stay in the U.S. on a temporary basis
- You somehow misrepresented certain facts
- You were convicted of a crime that disqualifies your application
The good news is that receiving an NOID does not mean that your application has been denied, but rather that it will be denied if the reasons for the NOID are not overcome.
How to Show Eligibility After a NOID
Usually, the USCIS issues a Notice of Intent to Deny because an applicant wasn't able to prove eligibility through the already submitted documents.
If this is the situation you have found yourself in, I can:
- Review your immigration file
- Identify the missing evidence
- Help you organize the supporting documentation
- File the documents along with a persuasive legal memorandum
Once a response is filed, the USCIS will make a final decision on your case anytime as soon as one week to three months, depending on the complexity of your situation. Sometimes, an immigration petition is denied because of a mistake on the part of the USCIS. They deal with many people and it is easy to make errors on a case. If this has occurred, I can also help you file an appeal
or a motion to reopen.
