New York Immigration Appeal Lawyers
Not every immigration case ends happily. Overloaded courts sometimes fail to see critical evidence, or they rule in a way that seems illogical or capricious. If you have had a trial go against you, you still have options.
One is to file a Motion to Reopen. This is a request that the Immigration Court take a second look at the case, so that new facts and evidence can be heard. Motions to reopen may not be frivolous. The evidence in question must be significant, and it must have been unavailable for some reason during the initial trial. The motion must be made within 90 days of the original decision.
Queens BIA And Federal Court Appeals Attorneys Serving Manhattan
The most common reasons for requesting a Motion to Reopen include:
- Your removal/deportation judgment went against you.
- Your request for asylum or cancellation of removal was denied.
- Your green card or citizenship applications were turned down.
Requesting a Motion to Reopen from Immigration Court results in speedier consideration than requesting one from the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA), which may take years to decide a case. Motions can also be requested in matters governed by the Office of the Chief Administrative Hearing Officer (OCAHO).
Appealing Cases To The Board Of Immigration Appeals (BIA)
You do not want an average immigration lawyer to take your case to the BIA. Judges are impatient with attorneys who don’t know appeals law or are unfamiliar with the requirements of writing the brief.
