    The first step to appeal is the Mandatory Reconsideration. (MR) Only about 23% of those decisions change, so you'll likely need to take it to Tribunal.
    For Tribunal if you either appear in person or have a telephone/video hearing the chance of success is 73%.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
