Immigration Appeals and Motions
An Immigrant Visa (also known as a “green card” or lawful permanent residence) allows a person to reside and work in the U.S. permanently.Some cases with final decisions (not all cases), may be appealed to the Administrative Appeals Office (AAO) or the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) and possibly to the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. In other instances where the government fails to properly process a case, a complaint may be filed in Federal Court, which may create the necessary pressure for a favorable resolution.
Whatever the situation, it is crucial to seek competent legal advice as soon as possible. The filing of an appeal, motion to reopen, motion to reconsider or federal complaint is always time sensitive. Generally, the government provided only 30 to 45 days to file an appeal or motion. Failing to reply or file the necessary documentation in a timely manner may result in missing your opportunity to access to the courts or administrative bodies for reconsideration of your matter.
