How to File an Appeal
An appeal is a request for a higher authority to review the unfavorable decision in your case. When considering an immigration appeal, you will want to consider speaking to an immigration attorney to determine whether you are eligible to file. Our Miami immigration appeals attorney can help you with this process.
Who Can File
Eligibility for immigration appeals are determined on a case-by-case basis. You can find information about your appeal rights located on your USCIS denial or the order of the immigration judge. If the court denied your case, the Court will provide you with the forms for the appeal. Even if your case is not eligible for an appeal, you may still able to file a motion to reopen or reconsider the case.
Where to File
For immigration appeals in the U.S., there are three entities to which an appeal can be filed.
- The USCIS Administrative Appeals Office (AAO)
- The Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA)
- U.S. District Courts
Your decision notice will include information about where you must file an appeal. If you mail your appeal, be sure to send it to the correct address and allow enough time for it to arrive by the deadline.
When to File
If you wish to file an appeal, you must do so before the deadline. Generally, you will have 30 days from the date of the judge’s decision to submit your appeal. The only extension available is three extra days for when your decision is mailed to you.
What to File
Most USCIS appeals are filed using Form I-290B, Notice of an Appeal or Motion, though there are some exceptions. The USCIS decision will tell you which form you need to file and by when it must be submitted. Immigration Court denials and Bond Denials are addressed to the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA).
A brief, although not required, should be submitted on your behalf. Submitting a brief without the help of a qualified attorney could lead to your appeal being dismissed if the explanation is found to be insufficient. A lawyer can also help you gather and file supporting evidence for your appeal.
