Appeals of denials of marriage and other family-based petitions for permanent residency fall within the jurisdiction of the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA), which is the highest administrative body that deals solely with immigration matters. Marriage petition appeals must be filed within a specified period of time, usually 30 days. Additional documentation as well as a legal brief detailing the reasons for the appeal should be submitted. Generally a marriage petition appeal will not require an in-person appearance by the applicant or their legal representative.
