Appeals and Motions to Reopen/Reconsider

Has your case been denied by an Immigration Judge, Board of Immigration Appeals, or U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)?

I can help you evaluate whether an appeal will be successful and then assist you with filing the appeal. There are strict deadlines and legal requirements that must be met when filing an appeal. Ensuring your appeal is timely and properly filed with the appropriate office is part of my job. I will work to ensure that the best researched arguments with the greatest chances of success are made on your behalf. Appeals can be made to the Administrative Appeals Office, Board of Immigration Appeals, and a petition for judicial review can also be filed with the circuit court in some cases.

In addition to the right to appeal, it may also be a good idea to file a Motion to Reopen or a Motion to Reconsider with the office that made the unfavorable decision. By filing these motions, you may ask the office to reexamine or reconsider its decision. I can assist you in determining whether you have new evidence that must be submitted or if the USCIS decision was not properly based in law.
