Immigration Petition Denials: Know Your Rights

United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is a government agency that is responsible for administering most of the country’s immigration and naturalization system. If the USCIS denies your immigration petition, you may effectively challenge the agency through a federal law called the Administrative Procedure Act (APA). The APA is the basis of the majority of legal claims filed against USCIS. 

The APA allows private individuals to sue government agencies on the grounds that they made an arbitrary or capricious decision or otherwise abuse their discretion under the law. Our Colorado immigration attorney can help you prepare a formal challenge to an immigration petition denial using your rights under the APA. As you have a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit under the APA, it is imperative that you consult with an attorney as soon as possible after receiving an unfavorable decision.
