You may be able to file a motion to reopen if you would like USCIS to review its unfavorable decision based upon new facts. Your motion to reopen must state new facts you wish to have considered by USCIS. You cannot simply reargue previously stated facts or resubmit evidence that was previously filed with USCIS. In addition to stating the new facts, you must submit affidavits and other supporting evidence to show you were eligible for the requested immigration benefit at the time your petition or application was originally filed with USCIS.
If USCIS denied your petition or application because you failed to timely respond to a request for evidence or notice of intent to deny, you may file a motion to reopen if you can demonstrate:
The evidence USCIS requested was not material to your petition or application;
You previously submitted the required to USCIS at the time of filing your petition or application;
You timely appeared or submitted the additional evidence during the time USCIS set for doing so; or
USCIS sent the request for evidence or appearance to the wrong address.
You typically have to file a motion to reopen within 30 days from the date USCIS made the unfavorable decision. If you properly file a motion to reopen, USCIS will issue a new decision. However, it is important to note that filing a motion to reopen does not suspend implementation of the unfavorable decision or extend your ability to remain in the United States.

I cannot thank Wendy Barlow, Esquire of Tucker & Cohen Law Firm in New York for the excellent services that was provided to a very close family member of mine. For years he was afraid to file for his citizenship because of a youthful offender offense that occurred in New York. The fear was due to the advice from an immigration lawyer in Florida after he reviewed the court documents relating to the offense. After being referred to Wendy and her team about 4 months ago and after he review of the offense, she advised him to apply for his citizenship and from the beginning of the process, Wendy was there fir him every step of the way. She took away his fear when she informed him due to her extensive experience and expertise not only in Immigration Law but also the impact of criminal offenses and obtaining citizenship. All the anxiety and fear of traveling for over 30 years was relieved. It was surprising to us that the process went through that quickly. Myself and our entire family are pleased that Wendy was with him yesterday at his immigration interview and the best outcome of all is that he was granted his United States Citizenship after the interview yesterday. This process only toom about four months. All the years that family vacations were missed can now be made up. This was only possible due to the expertise, professional, exemplary performance of Wendy Barlow. I would recommend Wendy Barlow and her team for anyone and everyone with immigration issues. She is the absolute best and the fact that she can travel to many states and offer that assistance is remarkable because many immigration lawyers can only practice in one state. Wendy. thanks again for making a positive difference in the lives of our family due to your expert knowledge of immigration law. For those persons that may need help, please do not let fear overcome you, don’t hesitate, call Wendy Barlow at Tucker & Cohen Law Firm in New York no matter what state you reside.

We are so overjoyed with this law firm! We had the pleasure of working with Wendy who represented my husband I on our case. Wendy in the whole office are very professional and highly responsive. They do a great job at making sure they set the expectation and they’re also very honest about your case. They work extremely efficiently and dedicate as much time as needed to make sure you are well taken care of. We won our case (it was approved). It’s been an amazing weight that he’s been lifted off of our shoulders!! We are so happy and will be surly using Wendy and this law firm again to represent us in the next stage of our process.

Wendy Barlow handled my H4 visa refusal case very professionally. The case was resolved in 2 months and I can be with my wife finally. Wendy was always available via email and phone, I never had to wait to get any answers or simply reassurance call from Wendy. I am so glad that we found Wendy via Avvo where she is also highly rated. I just dont have enough words of praise for Wendy. We will be always coming back to Wendy for any future immigration needs!!

I am a partner at Dilendorf Law Firm. I worked with Cohen & Tucker Law and they are a great group of experienced immigration lawyers. For my FinTech and crypto cases, Natalia Morozova is my go-to resource and counsel for anything immigration-related. Their knowledge of US Immigration law is second to none. Attentive, personal & very experienced. Highly recommended.

Wendy Barlow is the most amazing lawyer! No words can describe how great she is. She helped my husband get a hardship and his temporary green card. We loved how hands on and on top of everything we hired her again to remove the conditions from his green card. Ms. Barlow is professional and very knowledgeable on immigration. I am definitely gonna hire her again to do my husband citizenship. I always recommend Ms.Barlow to anyone that’s needs help with immigration issues. Because of Ms. Barlow my daughter will have her dad and not have to worry about deportation. I am forever grateful.

Recomiendo los mucho servicios de este oficina. La abogada Natalia me ayudó a conseguir mi residencia permanente. Preparo la petición de mi esposa, un perdón y me ayudaron con el proceso consular. Fui al consulado y recibi mi visa sin dificultad. Me alegré mucho de ver a mi familia luego de 22 años, pero aún más feliz de regresar a mi familia aqui en Estados Unidos.
