The lawyers at Wiley & Jobson are experts in litigating on behalf of immigrants and have extensive experience in appeals to the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) and to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. If your case was denied by the Immigration Judge or by the Board of Immigration Appeals, you have the right to appeal that decision. You also have the right to appeal some decisions by U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (CIS). For specific information about appealing an adverse decision in your case, contact us.
An appeal of an Immigration Court’s decision will generally involve a challenge to the legal reasoning supporting it. In some cases, the law is misinterpreted; in others, you may argue that the court overlooked evidence in the record that led to an erroneous decision.
If additional evidence or new information might have convinced the Immigration Court to rule in your favor, we might advise you to file a motion to reopen so that you can have a new hearing and present the missing evidence to the judge.
If your case is pending with CIS, but CIS has delayed in issuing a decision in your case, you may be able to file a writ of mandamus in federal district court asking a federal judge to order CIS to finalize your case. Our immigration attorneys can assist you with a mandamus suit.
