Immigration Appeals

Background

At end of your case, the immigration judge will issue a decision concluding whether you are deportable or inadmissible. At this time the judge will also decide on any requested relief you are trying to apply for in order to remain in the country. The order may be in a summary format, where the immigration judge uses a pre-existing form with boxes and fill-in-the blanks to show his or her decision on your case.

The decision of the immigration judge may be appealed by either party to the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA).

There are 3 major forms of administrative review of adverse decisions of the immigration court when you are in removal proceedings:

  • Appeals to the Board of Immigration Appeals;
  • Motions to reopen; and
  • Motions to reconsider.

Our law firm can ask the BIA to reopen or reconsider its own decisions through a motion to reopen or reconsider. If the BIA denies the case again then we can ask for review in a federal court.

Eligibility

Was your case ignored or disregarded by the immigration judge?

Did your judge fail to give proper weight to the evidence or testimony from your witnesses?

Did the court rule on something that hurt you in an unjust manner?

Is there new information available on your case that you did not have access to earlier?

If you answered yes to any of these questions you may be eligible to appeal your immigration case!

Procedure

Form EOIR-26, Notice of Appeal to the Board of Immigration Appeals, together with the filing fee or a request for fee waiver, must be filed directly with the BIA in Falls Church, Virginia, no later than 30 calendar days after the judge’s decision. The appeal must be received by the BIA before the 30-day deadline. If you wish for us to represent you on the appeal, we will need to file Form EOIR-27, Notice of Entry of Appearance before the Board of Immigration Appeals. There is an automatic stay of removal during the appeal to the BIA.

Benefits
  • Automatic stay of removal – you cannot be removed from the United States against your will until a decision has been reached on your appeal; and
  • The ability to fight your case again.

Client Reviews

Llamé al abogado de inmigración Armand porque no sabía que tenía una orden de deportación. Nunca recibí un aviso de que tenía que ir a la corte y el juez continuó mi audiencia sin mí y me ordenó deportada. Me reuní con Armand en su oficina y rápidamente investigó mi caso y presentó una moción para intentar reabrir mi caso de deportación. Ganamos y ahora puedo permanecer en los Estados Unidos sin temor a que alguien me arreste y deporte. Gracias a mi abogado de inmigración. Ismelda R.

We found Armand through a friend who recommended him and had a great experience using his services. My husband was detained by immigration because they came to the wrong house but found that he was living in the United States without documentation. I was desperate and called Armand for help. I was surprised when he answered because it was over the weekend and it was late but I am glad he did. He patiently listened to me and visited my husband at the detention center. He then devised a strategy to try and get him released from custody. THANK GOD WE FOUND HIM. Armand’s hard work led to the immigration judge giving my husband a bond. My husband is now home with us and we look forward to working with Armand to legalize him in the future. Armand is the best. I highly recommend him. Jennifer L.

Mi hijo fue arrestado por conducir sin licencia y luego la inmigración fue a buscarlo mientras estaba en la cárcel. Inmigración lo trasladó a un centro de detención que estaba sucio y no lo alimentaron. Queríamos sacarlo rápidamente. Llamamos a Armand y en unas pocas semanas el juez ya le dio una fianza de inmigración y lo liberó! Le debemos todo a nuestro abogado. Muy honesto e inteligente. El abogado luchas para la comunidad latina. Javier M.
