New York City Immigration Appeal Lawyer
Denied Applications and Unsuccessful Cases
If you are adversely affected by an the court’s decision on your request for immigration, you have the right to appeal. This may apply if you have been denied a visa, a green card, naturalization, your labor certification has been rejected, or your deportation has been ordered. In this situation, you need to contact a
immigration lawyer immediately, as you only have 30 days in which to request an appeal. Your case will first go to the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) and if you receive another unfavorable ruling, the federal court of appeals and even the Supreme Court may review your case.
Appellate courts function differently from other courts in that they do not allow the original case to be reheard but simply review the processes and decisions of the lower court or courts. Due to this limited latitude, such cases require an adept approach by a highly skilled attorney. Your legal counsel must be able to identify the specific factors which can be brought to the court’s attention and which may alter the final outcome of your case. These can include legal errors, procedural errors, abuse of discretion and issues relating to your constitutional rights. A precise presentation may result in the appellate court reversing the lower court’s decision.
