LOS ANGELES IMMIGRATION APPEALS ATTORNEY
There are times when an immigration appeal or judicial intervention is necessary. If you or a loved one has had an immigration case denied, it is important that you have the assistance of an experienced immigration attorney to appeal on your behalf to correct any errors that may have occurred reversing the prior negative decision.
APPEALS BEFORE THE BOARD OF IMMIGRATION APPEALS (BIA)
The Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) is the highest administrative body in immigration law. If you have received a negative decision from the immigration judge and you wish to appeal the decision, you must file your notice of appeal with the Board of Immigration Appeals within 30 days of the Immigration Judge's order. Otherwise, the immigration judge's decision will become final. Once your case is properly filed, the BIA will mail out a briefing schedule requesting arguments to show the alleged errors in law or facts in support of the appeal. The BIA decides your appeal by conducting a "paper" or record review. We have extensive experience handling BIA appeals.
MOTION TO RECONSIDER / MOTION TO REOPEN
If you or your loved one has been ordered deported/removed, you may move to reopen or to reconsider a previous decision by filing a timely motion with an Immigration Judge or the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA). The central purpose of a motion to reopen is to introduce new and additional evidence that is material and that was unavailable at the original hearing.
A motion to reconsider seeks a reexamination of the decision based on alleged errors of law and facts.
