Immigration Appeal Process
If an immigration judge denied your case during your merits hearing in immigration court, or Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR), you may file an appeal.
First, file an I-290 Notice of Appeal or Motion with the Administrative Appeals Office (AAO) or the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) who will hear the appeal. It must be filed and received within 30 days from the date of the judge’s order.
For those who received a judge’s decision in writing instead of open court, you must ensure your appeal is received within 30 days of the date the decision was mailed to you. Late-filed appeals will not be accepted, even if it was late due to a mail courier, so make sure you fill out the mailing label and all other materials correctly and provide proper postage.
When the BIA receives your appeal, they will send you a receipt notice within 2 weeks and if you do not hear from them, you should contact the BIA.
If you indicated that you would like to submit a brief, a briefing schedule will then be set -- you are given 30 days to file. it. After that, the opposing counsel will have 30 days to respond.
After reviewing submissions from both parties, the BIA will make a decision on your appeal. This process can take months or years, depending on your circumstances. Keep in mind that even if the immigration judge ordered to have you deported, you have a right to stay in the United States while awaiting a decision on your appeal. If you leave the country, your appeal will be canceled.
For those appealing a judgement from a legal proceeding like a bond hearing or deportation or removal, you should reserve your appeal immediately and make sure your Notice of Appeal is properly filled out and filed in a timely manner. The process is complex and can quickly become overwhelming, especially with so much riding on your appeal. Your outcome depends in many ways on having the right immigration attorney pushing for a positive outcome. When you need to file an appeal, trust Kapoor Law Firm to expertly handle your case and fight to achieve your immigration goals.
