West Covina Immigration Lawyer

Filing Immigration Appeals in CA

Facing removal proceedings can be a stressful experience, but it can be devastating to receive an order of removal. If an immigration judge has ordered your removal from the United States, you still have the opportunity to challenge the order. In order to appeal your pending removal, you will need to file an appeal with the Board of Immigration appeals. Appealing your removal order is a difficult task, but our West Covina immigration lawyer has more than 20 years of legal experience and has a record of successfully representing his clients in federal court.

Challenging an Immigration Judge's Decision

When you seek to challenge an immigration judge’s final decision regarding your removal, your case must be taken before the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA). The Board is the highest administrative body for interpreting and applying immigration laws, including the laws used to decide your case. There can be up to 17 board members, who will preside over immigration decision appeals from across the nation. Frequently, these appeals are conducted by “paper review,” meaning the board will review the case documents and make a decision. Occasionally, however, the BIA will hear oral arguments for a case.

Our West Covina immigration attorney can help you file your Board of Immigration appeals case and provide support and guidance through the process. It is critical to work quickly if you plan to appeal your immigration decisions, since you are still under threat of removal. Once you have filed your appeal, you will be granted an automatic stay of removal while your case is considered. If your case is not filed in a timely manner or is not carefully presented, you case may be summarily dismissed, without ever getting proper consideration.

Possible Results of Your Appeal

There are several ways your appeal may be resolved. The Board of Immigration Appeals may remand your case back to the immigration judge for additional testimony and/or a new decision. This will give you a second chance to fight your removal and present your case in front of an immigration judge again.

On the other hand, the Board of Immigration Appeals may also uphold the judge’s decision or summarily dismiss your case. If this occurs, your removal will be put back into action. You may have one more chance to appeal your removal, by requesting further review by the United States Court of Appeals.

Appealing to the US Court of Appeals

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has the power to decide if a law passed by Congress violates the Constitution, and has a far greater amount of power to make a decision in your case. If you file an appeal to this level of courts, you should be aware that you are not automatically granted a stay of removal, as you are with your BIA appeal. You will need to file a separate petition for a stay of removal while your appeal is pending.
