Internationally Recognized Federal Law Attorneys

Appeals and federal litigation

You may appeal to a higher court if you have already been to immigration court and the Board of Immigration Appeals. The attorneys of the Federal Practice Group can bring your case before federal courts if you still have not been granted the relief that you seek. Our attorneys are knowledgeable about the system of appeals that your case may experience.

The Law on Immigration and Federal Court Litigation

Federal immigration appeals can apply to any case, but most often involve very serious matters, such as:

If the Board of Immigration Appeals denies your case, you can file a Petition for Review with the federal appellate court that has jurisdiction over your case. You may not petition for review more than 30 days after the Board’s decision.

If the Board of Immigration Appeals has denied your case, you should immediately contact our office so that our lawyers can review your case and determine whether you should file a Petition for Review. It is important that you do so quickly to allow our lawyers enough time to make an informed response.

If you are in need of representation, or have any questions about the federal appeal process, contact an attorney at the Federal Practice Group today.
