If you are facing a final order of removal, or have lost your case in Immigration Court, it is possible to appeal the court’s decision to prevent your removal from the United States. The Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) is the body that handles such issues. An appeal must be filed to the BIA within thirty days of the Immigration Judge’s decision. It is not uncommon for an administrative or application error to result in an unfavorable decision on the Immigration Court level, so be sure to contact us to investigate and assess your chances for appeal.
Federal Court of Appeals
If the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) denies your case, you can appeal the decision in a Federal Court of Appeals by filing a Petition for Review. This Petition requests that the court review the BIA’s decision. You must file your federal appeal within 30 days of the date of the BIA decision or you lose that right to appeal. There are no exceptions to the 30-day deadline.
