Freedom of Information Appeal basics

If your Freedom of Information Act request was denied a Freedom of Information Appeal can help you challenge that decision. Maybe the agency just never responded, or maybe their reason for denying your request wasn't satisfactory. A Freedom of Information Appeal can help you get the information you deserve.

Use the Freedom of Information Appeal document if:

  • You were denied information from a federal agency.
  • An agency never replied to your request for information.
  • You want to request a waiver for copy and search fees.

You're entitled to have access to information although sometimes it's not easy to get - this is where the Freedom of Information Appeal steps in. Let's say you've sent an information request to a federal agency and they haven't replied or maybe they even denied your application. Your rights include access to certain information, and if you don't get it in a timely manner you can challenge it. And if you can't afford the search and copying fees the agency requires you can request a fee waiver. After all, fees shouldn't prevent you from exercising your rights. A Freedom of Information Appeal can help you get information, save money, and challenge denials.
