Immigration appeal process

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello....I am needing assistance with my case as my approval process was previously denied due to my birth certificate translated in English not being received on time.  I have completed all steps during the immigration process including the test/interview and I only needed to mail in a copy of my birth certificate.  I met the deadline and sent my original BC to the immigration office in Tucker, GA overnight by US Mail and apparently they never received it nor did I receive the package back so I assumed it was delivered.  I failed to get the tracking number when I mailed it on May 22, 2019 and now the post office says they can only go back 60 days on lost receipts, and now I have to file an appeal with immigration using the N336 form but I have to include a fee of $700!  How can I avoid this fee and what should I do if I cannot gain a copy of the receipt showing it was mailed in time?  Should I avoid the appeal process and start over again or try the appeal and request the fee to be waived?

Don't know if you can avoid the fee. Those fees are for people to review your case. What grounds would the fee be waived? What if it was the postal service that made the mistake? Without evidence (the tracking number) a waiver for the fee will be a long shot.
