Appeals Customized Legal Solutions For Your Case

Cleveland Immigration Appeals Lawyer

File an Appeal with Our Cleveland Immigration Attorneys

Have you received a decision or notice from Immigration Services and disagree with the results? You can file an appeal with the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA). If the BIA also issues a denial, you can escalate the case to a higher court. Many individuals receive disheartening news when they receive the results of their immigration cases. However, there is always an opportunity for appeal.

Discuss your immigration matter with Sintsirmas & Mueller Co. L.P.A. We have over 50 years of combined experience and are very familiar with every facet of immigration law.

The Appeals Process

The Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) office is the highest office in the Immigration Service Department that hears appeals for immigration matters, removal proceedings, and other immigration issues. BIA will evaluate any decisions that immigration officials have imposed on family and business based immigration cases.

The decisions rendered may include the following:

  • Orders of removal
  • Relief from removal proceedings
  • Motions to reopen
  • Motions to reconsider

Each type of case has its own process. You should discuss your particular matter with our Cleveland immigration attorneys to determine what those requirements and deadlines are.

Most BIA cases are orders of removal and every action taken must be done promptly, offering little flexibility for appellant. If you have received any denials regarding your immigration matter and are facing removal, we can help prepare your case to bring before the Board of Immigration Appeals.

Appeals to the Board of Immigration Appeals

  • BIA handles immigration law and the immigration issues related to the law.
  • Regulates the actions of officers in the Department of Homeland Security.
  • Cases may be escalated to the Federal Circuit Court.

Appeals to the Administrative Appeals Office

  • Handles employment-based immigration law and non-immigration worker laws
  • Cases may be escalated to the Federal District Court.

Writ of Mandamus

  • This can be filed if the immigration office is delaying on making a decision on Green Card or citizenship status.

Writ of Habeas Corpus

  • This is a civil action against either State or Federal officials, to contest whether or not a person should be lawfully detained.

Writ of Coram Nobis

  • Provides support to those who have been released from custody but have suffered damage, loss, or emotional turmoil due to conviction.
