The law behind immigration appeals or immigration petitions can be a bit complex, and if you are looking to become a lawful permanent resident of the United States the more you can learn, the better off you will be.
However, if your case has been denied and you need immediate help your best bet would be to seek out a professional law office like Philip Levin & Associates to learn more about what can be done for your specific situation.
Let’s take a closer look at this topic and get more in-depth on some of the overarching topics related to immigration law.
Executive Office for Immigration Review
According to their site, the EOIR is in place to expedite and uniformly interpret the nation’s immigration laws in a fair manner. It is important to note that the EOIR is independent of immigration enforcement of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The EOIR makes decisions on immigration cases, however, these cases can be appealed.
An EOIR-26 form is a notice of appeal from a decision of an immigration judge. If you are looking to appeal a decision made by the Department of State’s U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, you will need to make an appeal through an EOIR-29 Form
The Board of Immigration Appeals
Normally, when an immigration appeal is made the Administrative Appeals Office is the body that handles it. However, in certain cases, it can be elevated to federal court through the United States Department of Justice’s Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA).
The BIA is the highest administrative body for dealing with immigration law. If someone does make an appeal to The Board, BIA decisions are, in turn, the highest decisions for appeals specifically and can even reverse decisions made by immigrant judges at lower courts. All this said you can still file an appeal of a BIA decision to a federal circuit court if the court has jurisdiction over that specific case.
Form I-130 is an important aspect of immigration law and one you should read up on. Essentially, an I-130 petition also referred to as “Petition for Alien Relative”, is documentation that formally establishes a relationship between a U.S. citizen or green card holder and a person seeking a green card.
As you can probably see by now, the laws, forms, organizations, and more that are all a part of immigration law can be complicated and difficult to deal with, luckily there is a simple solution.
