Chapter 10 - Post-Decision Actions
In most instances, once a benefit request is adjudicated and notices are sent to the relevant parties, no further action on the part of the officer is required. However, there are certain situations that may require additional actions. Such actions may be initiated by the requestor, ordinarily by filing an Application for Action on an Approved Application or Petition (Form I-824).
For example, Form I-824 may be filed, with fee, to request a duplicate approval notice or to transfer a visa petition requiring visa issuance from one consulate to another.
Jurisdiction to act on a Form I-824 lies with the office that originally approved the underlying benefit or, if the file has been transferred, with the office currently holding the file. Officers should follow local procedures for completing action on Form I-824.
