Immigration Appeals


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.


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!


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.


  • 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.
