  • Intent to deny LIFE Legalization

    I'm a Life Legalization applicant, I had my interview with the INS a year ago, after the interview the INS officer told me he would send me a decision by mail. Yesterday I received a letter from the INS telling me that my Life Legalization case denied for lack of strong evidence since 1982. Did anybody receive a denial letter from the INS? What's my next step should be?

      In that denial letter, they must have informed you to submit additiona evidence if any within 30 days. If you have any further proof or want to dispute their findings, you should write them accordingly. Or you can file appeal against this decision. If they have refered you before a Immigration Judge then you can dispute it over there.
      Good luck.

        ITD,

        What evidence did you have for 1982-1988? Which INS office interviewed you? You can submit affidavits from people that knew you between 1982-1988 to prove your presence.

        As for the appeal, you can find the procedures in the LIFE Regulations:

        The regulations are at http://frwebgate.access.gpo.gov/cgi-...cid=fr01jn01-2 and http://frwebgate.access.gpo.gov/cgi-...02-13918-filed

        Here's an excerpt from the '01 regulations:

        "Whenever an application for adjustment of status under LIFE
        Legalization is denied, the alien, and his or her attorney or
        representative, shall be given written notice stating the specific
        reason(s) for the denial. The denial shall also contain advice to the
        alien that he or she may appeal the decision, and shall provide
        instructions on when and where the appeal must be filed. The alien
        shall be advised that he or she may submit additional evidence, and a
        supporting brief, with the appeal. The notice of denial shall
        additionally provide a notice to the alien that if he or she fails to
        file an appeal from the decision, the notice of denial will serve as a
        final notice of ineligibility.
        What Is the Appeals Process?
        All appeals from decisions of denials of applications under LIFE
        Legalization must be filed on Form I-290B, Notice of appeal to the
        Administrative Appeals Unit (AAU). Appeals filed from within the United
        States must be filed with the Service office that denied the
        application within 30 days of the date the decision was mailed. Any
        appeal that is received subsequent to this 30-day period will not be
        accepted for processing and the decision of denial will be considered
        to be a final notice of ineligibility. If an applicant's last known
        address of record was outside the United States, and the notice of
        denial was mailed to that foreign address, then the appeal must be
        received within 60 days of the date the decision was mailed. Any appeal
        from abroad that is received subsequent to this 60-day period will not
        be accepted for processing and the decision of denial will be
        considered a final notice of ineligibility."

        You can also contact Center for Human Rights to see if they can help you.

          ITD:

          I'm sorry to hear that the INS denied your petition. Are they saying that they are denying, ot is it 'Intenet to deny" and you can submit more evidence? What kind of evidence you had to show your residence here since before 1982? I hope you are planning to apeal. Please give us some more info regarding your case.
          Best Wishes.
