Orlando Immigration Appeals Attorneys
At Colombo & Hurd, our immigration appeals attorneys represent immigrants and organizations before a variety of immigration appellate forums including the Board of Immigration Appeals (“BIA”) as well as the USCIS Administrative Appeals Office (“AAO”). Freqeuently, our clients seek guidance on what to do when an immigration case is denied. When determining how to properly respond to an immigration denial decision there are frequently a number of potential options that must be explored thoroughly before the best possible avenue for success can be selected. Whether you need to appeal a denial of an immigration decision by USCIS or the denial of a deportation case by an Immigration Judge our experienced immigration lawyers for immigration appeals can assist you in challenging the decision.
APPEALS TO THE BOARD OF IMMIGRATION APPEALS
If an immigration court denies your case, you have the right to appeal that decision. At Colombo & Hurd, our team of experienced immigration appellate attorneys can assist with the threshold determination of whether the decision of an immigration judge is ripe for appeal. A local immigration judge’s decision is not always correct, and it is critical that you obtain prompt, sound analysis and advice regarding your case. While an appeal is an important right that can result in victory, that right is subject to strict deadlines and filing requirements. Accordingly, you should consult an attorney to ensure you do not jeopardize your rights. For example, in most appeals you must file your notice of appeal within 30 days after the lower court decision. At Colombo & Hurd, we can ensure your notice of appeal is filed on a timely basis with the BIA. During the next stage of an appeal our team of immigration appellate lawyers prepare a detailed and thorough written argument supporting your case. Since there are rarely any hearings or oral arguments during the appeal before the BIA, the written arguments we prepare for you are the best chance to persuade the BIA that the local immigration judge incorrectly decided your case. Even if your case has been denied by the BIA, our attorneys also litigate immigration cases before federal appellate courts.
APPEALS TO THE AAO
It is also possible to appeal certain denials of petitions filed with USCIS with the AAO. Alternatively, it may be possible to file an appeal to the BIA or a Motion to Reopen or Motion to Reconsider concerning denials of requests of other immigration benefits before USCIS. If you have received a denial of a requested immigration benefit, you may wish to contact the immigration appeals lawyers of Colombo & Hurd to determine if an appeal to the AAO may be beneficial. If you are eligible for an appeal to the AAO, Colombo & Hurd will diligently file an application for appeal and prepare the requisite brief in support of your argument seeking reversal.
At Colombo & Hurd, we are dedicated to providing you that chance of help to obtain a better result. If you have a question or consultation regarding an appeal contact us immediately. Time is critical in appeals cases so do not delay. 1(800)549-5523
