Boston Immigration Appeals Attorney

Nomos Law Group has experienced immigration appeals attorneys who can help file for your case.


Immigration Appeals Attorney in Boston

Immigration laws in the United States are complicated. There are different paths you can take, depending on your situation. Once you go through the process, several departments will need to decide on your application.

If the decision is unfavorable, you have the option to file an appeal. That is a legal process that requests another review from a higher legal authority.

Our Boston immigration appeals lawyer will be able to guide you on how the process should be done. We can help by first assessing what the facts are in the case and providing you with options on what can be done next.

You do not have to lose hope immediately if you get an unfavorable decision. You can contact us at the Nomos Law Group to see the next steps you can take.

When Can I Appeal?

Immigration appeals do not always have to be about removal or deportation. You can file appeals:

  • If your petition for a visa is denied
  • A naturalization application was denied
  • If you received a Notice of Intent to Deny coming from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services
  • Your waiver of ground of inadmissibility was denied

Understanding Immigration Appeals

Typically, you will file your immigration appeal with the Board of Immigration Appeals or the USCIS Administrative Appeals Office. These are the offices that decide on different immigration cases. Which office you file with will depend on the nature of the case.

Appeals through the BIA are related to:

  • Removal or deportation proceedings
  • Bond adjudication
  • Denial of the I-130 petition

Appeals through the AAO are related to:

  • Adjustment of status applications
  • Employment visas
  • Temporary protected status application
  • Special immigrant petitions
  • Temporary labor petitions
  • Investment-based visas

Both the BIA and AAO usually do not hold oral arguments. Instead, they focus on using written briefs.

How Do Immigration Appeals Work?

You have 30 days to file an immigration appeal from the date the decision was made. In some cases, you have 15 days to file. If the office does not receive anything within the specified time, the decision will become final, and you no longer have the option to file an appeal.

The basic overview of the immigration process is stated below:

  1. The Notice of Appeal is received by the Board of Immigration Appeals.
  2. The BIA confirms the receipt of the notice. It will also send a transcript of the original decision with the briefing schedule and deadline.
  3. Return the brief to the BIA within the specified time.
  4. The brief will be reviewed by the BIA, which will respond with a decision in a few months.

Once you get an unfavorable decision, the clock starts to tick. You have a limited time to respond to increase your chances of getting it reversed. If you need help crafting your response, our Boston immigration appeals attorneys are ready to consult with you. Call us today.

Appeal Versus Motion

An appeal is requesting a different office to review the case and decision. A motion to reconsider or reopen a case is asking the same officer or judge who made the original decision to give it a second look.

A motion to reconsider is useful when:

  1. The decision was made using the improper application of the law.
  2. The decision was made based on incorrect evidence in the case.

A motion is an alternative remedy that asks to consider new facts or evidence.
