An immigrant who loses an immigration court hearing, or whose immigration application is denied, has the right to appeal the decision. Mirque Law handles appeals of all types of immigration matters — from deportation orders to denials of visas or requests for asylum. Removal (deportation) orders and other decisions by immigration judges are appealed to the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA). Denials of visas and petitions made by USCIS officers are usually appealed to the Administrative Appeals Office (AAO). There are strict timelines associated with these appeals. Most immigration appeals must be filed within 30 days from the date of a decision. It is important to have an experienced attorney guide you through the appeals process.
An immigrant who loses an appeal may be able to appeal further to the federal courts. The federal courts have jurisdiction to review most decisions by the BIA as well as some matters involving USCIS actions. If you or a relative did not get the result they were hoping for in immigration court or with the USCIS, give Mirque Law a call to discuss your rights immediately. You cannot afford to wait and let a deadline go by.
