The USCIS Administrative Appeals Office (AAO) has jurisdiction over the appeals from decisions on most immigration petitions and applications that are entered by USCIS regional service centers and district offices. The AAO produces appellate decisions that aim to provide fair and legally supportable resolutions of individual applications and petitions for immigration benefits. These decisions are meant to provide guidance to applicants, petitioners, practitioners and government officials in the correct interpretation of immigration law, regulations and policy.
USCIS recently posted the 2012 AAO on the USCIS.gov regarding Regional Center applications and I-526/I-829 petitions. Please click on the link below to view these decisions:
