What Can You Do If You Lose Your Immigration Case?
If you had an immigration case in court or with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and you lost, this is not the end. You can fight the decision. Mistakes are made by judges and immigration officers alike, and you do not have to accept their incorrect conclusions. A knowledgeable attorney with extensive experience doing appellate work can help overturn the decision and put your immigration situation back on track.
Appealing Court Decisions
After the judge hears your case, he/she may either grant or deny your request. If you win, the government may still appeal it and you must show the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) why the decision is correct. If you lose, you should reserve your right to appeal and give yourself 30 days to put your case before the Board. During this time, you can stop deportation from the United States. Seek a good immigration appeals lawyer, who will review the entire record, prepare the proper paperwork and put forward strong arguments for you when filing your case with the Board. This could make the difference between whether you win or lose your appeal.
Reversing Incorrect Decisions from USCIS
The majority of applications for an immigration benefit in the United States go to USCIS. With this kind of volume, it’s not uncommon to see numerous mistakes from the government that hurt applicants and cost them precious filing fees and missed opportunities. Not only are you dumbfounded by the result when you open the denial letter but what to do next is confusing and complex. Punctuality, accuracy and a thorough understanding of the different procedures and forms is vital to improving your chances with an appeal. In some situations, an appeal may not be the best solution for you and it is quicker and easier to file a new application. A qualified immigration attorney can answer questions on how to move forward and explore your options with you.
