Ok. I will let you know what your next action should be. I just ask that if it is bad news that you not shoot the messenger. Shooting the messenger is either leaving a negative rating (usually reserved for rude or unprofessional experts) or not leaving a positive rating at all.
For now, you have to wait until you get the denial letter. You will review why it was denied and you will have 30 days or perhaps 33 days from the date of the denial to file an I-290B to appeal or reconsider the decision. Here is a link to that:
You are allowed to stay in the U.S. while you are waiting for the results of the appeal, but if it is denied, your unlawful presence begins from the date of the original denial and if you accrue 180 days to 364 days of unlawful presence, you are banned from the U.S. for 3 years unless you get a very hard to get waiver. If you accrue one year or more of unlawful presence, it is a 10 year bar.
So yes, as to the only question that you asked, yes, you can appeal the issue. You will have a chance to do that and that is your next step after you receive and review the denial letter.
My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions and there is no additional charge. Also, should you need to chat on the phone, private email or need help reviewing documentation, I am happy to do so for a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested in these – I am happy to give you more details! If you have no further questions (at this time) please leave a positive rating for my service. I would sincerely ***** ***** You can do that by clicking on the 3rd, 4th or 5th stars or smiley faces if you see them. If you do not see any stars or smiley faces, you may have to scroll up to the top of the page or click on my name and they should come out. Also, your session does NOT close when leaving a positive rating, so you can continue to ask additional questions without additional charge. Thank you for your understanding.
