10.16 Denial for Lack of Prosecution.
Any application or petition may be denied, pursuant to
8 CFR 103.2(b)
, if a petitioner or applicant fails to appear for a required interview, fails to provide an original document when requested to do so, fails to appear for fingerprinting as directed or fails to provide additional evidence when requested. When an application is denied for lack of prosecution, the petitioner, applicant or attorney of record, as appropriate, must be notified in writing of the decision. If such a notice of denial is returned undeliverable, place the notice, including the original mailing enve
lope, in the appropriate file as evidence of attempted service. Such a denial is without prejudice to a later re-filing of the application or petition.
