Appeals and Motions to Reopen

A deportation order by an Immigration Judge can often be appealed to the Board of Immigration Appeals. Similarly, immigration petitions and applications that are denied by the Department of Homeland Security can also often be appealed. Most appeals must be filed within 30 days. The chances of success on appeal and the risks of filing an appeal are different for every case because every person’s situation is unique. Please consult with a lawyer as soon as possible if you think your case might benefit from an appeal.

Similarly, people who were ordered deported recently or even many years ago may be able to reopen their cases and obtain lawful permanent residence. Every case is different and most cases are complex. However, immigration laws and policies change all the time, so it is worth consulting with an experienced immigration lawyer to find out what possibilities exist.
