SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Proposed Changes to the Form Instructions for Form I-290B

    On December 6, 2019, USCIS published a notice in the Federal 
Register requesting public comments for 60-days on its proposed update 
to the Form I-290B, Notice of Appeal or Motion, and its form 
instructions. 84 FR 66924 (Dec. 6, 2019) (60-day notice). In the 60-day 
notice, USCIS explained that it was proposing to clarify the AAO's 
procedural requirements as provided in the Form I-290B in a number of 
ways. USCIS received six comments and we have responded to the comments 
in the addendum attached to the supporting statement that has been 
submitted to OMB with the request for approval of this information 
collection. A summary of the changes that were proposed and the outcome 
of each proposal in the final form and instructions submitted to OMB 
for review and clearance in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act 
are as follows:

(1) Appeals Must Address All Grounds of Ineligibility Identified in the 
Unfavorable Decision

    For the reasons provided in the 60-day notice and in the responses 
to the public comments, this change is maintained in the update to the 
Form I-290B Instructions.

(2) Affected Parties May Waive the ``Initial Field Review'' Process

    After considering public comments, USCIS has removed this change 
from the form and instructions.

(3) Clarify the ``Initial Field Review'' Process When Evidence Is Not 
Submitted Concurrently With the Appeal

    This change is maintained in the update to the Form I-290B 
Instructions.

(4) Treatment of Newly Submitted Evidence on Appeal

    After considering public comments, USCIS has removed this proposed 
change.

(5) Abuse of Discretion Standard of Review for Discretionary Decisions

    USCIS has removed this proposed change from the revised form 
instructions submitted to OMB for review.

(6) Clarify That the AAO Does Not Have Appellate Jurisdiction Over ``No

have jurisdiction over appeals of ``no risk'' determinations under the 
Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006, Public Law 109-248, 
120 Stat. 587 (AWA). Section 402(a)(2) of the AWA bars approval of 
family-based visa petitions filed by U.S. citizens who have been 
convicted of a ``specified offense against a minor'' unless the DHS 
Secretary, in his or her ``sole and unreviewable discretion,'' 
determines that the U.S. citizen poses ``no risk'' to the beneficiary 
of the petition. For the reasons provided in the 60-day notice and in 
the responses to the public comments, this change is maintained in the 
update to the Form I-290B Instructions.

from the form instructions.

to Whether the Motion Was Properly Dismissed

Instructions.

(11) Safe Address

    In response to public comments and stakeholder input, USCIS added a 
space to collect the safe address from affected parties who are subject 
to 8 U.S.C. 1367. This change is maintained in the update to the Form 
I-290B and instructions.
