Immigration Appeals

In U.S. immigration law, not every application or petition proceeds as smoothly as one might hope. Whether it's a visa denial, a removal order, or any other unfavorable decision, the pathway to resolving such issues often leads through the process of an immigration appeal. At Wogwu Law, we're committed to demystifying this process for our clients, ensuring you have the knowledge and support needed to tackle the challenges ahead. Our approach is friendly, understandable, and devoid of complex legal jargon, aiming to make the appeals process accessible.

The Essence of Immigration Appeals

Immigration appeals are a critical mechanism within the U.S. legal system, allowing individuals and employers to contest decisions made by immigration authorities. Whether it's the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the Immigration Court, or the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA), an appeal provides a second chance to argue your case. Attorney Wogwu and our team at Wogwu Law are here to guide you through this intricate process, ensuring your voice is heard and your case is presented in the most vital possible light.

Why You Might Need an Immigration Appeal

Various circumstances may necessitate an immigration appeal. Perhaps your work visa application was denied, your green card petition was rejected, or you're facing deportation. Each situation can significantly impact your life or business, making understanding your rights and the avenues available for challenging these decisions crucial. At Wogwu Law, we handle each case carefully and diligently, ensuring every client receives personalized and effective legal representation.

How Long Do I Have to File an Immigration Appeal?

The timeline for filing an immigration appeal is critical and can vary depending on the specific circumstances of your case and the entity that issued the decision you're appealing. Generally, for decisions made by an immigration judge, such as those in removal proceedings, you typically have 30 days from the decision date to file an appeal with the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA). This means the BIA must receive your appeal within 30 days; more is needed to send it within that timeframe.

For decisions made by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) regarding visa applications, green card applications, or other immigration benefits, the timeframe to appeal can also be 30 days. Still, it may vary depending on the specific type of decision. It's important to carefully read the decision notice you receive, as it will outline the particular deadline for filing an appeal or motion. It's crucial to adhere to these deadlines because failing to file an appeal within the designated period usually results in losing your right to appeal, making the unfavorable decision final.
