If my son's I-130 was denied and I believe I should not appeal but resubmit with new information, how long should I wait?

  2. It depends on the basis of the denial. Sometimes a motion to reopen is more appropriate. Seek counsel and review the denial with him/her and decide which course of action is appropriate.
