    My case got denied two weeks ago.

    1. appeal
    To appeal an unfavorable decision to the AAO, a person or entity must have legal standing in the proceeding. USCIS regulations provide that a petitioner or an applicant has legal standing in an appeal before the AAO, while the beneficiary of a petition or another third party does not

    2. motion
    The appellant or representative of record must file the motion. Except where the beneficiary is also a self-petitioner, USCIS regulations state that the beneficiary of a petition is not a party to the proceeding and does not have standing to file a motion.

    But I self-petitioned.
    So I'm confused. does this mean that I need a lawyer to file an appeal or motion?

    Please let me know if I can appeal when I already self-petitioned. or Can I hire a lawyer for this ?
    They are saying that I have no standing to file a motion.
