Notice of Intent to Deny for R-1 Petition

After an onsite inspection of our facility was conducted, we received a “Notice of Intent to Deny” for our R-1 petition. Is this an actual denial of the petition, or is there any other action that we can take to try to still have the petition approved?

If an onsite inspection yields derogatory information not known to the petitioner, USCIS will issue a “Notice of Intent to Deny” the petition.  The petitioner may submit additional documentation to rebut the derogatory evidence.  If the petition is then denied, the denial may be appealed to the USCIS Administrative Appeals Office.
