Immigration Appeals

When you find yourself in the unfortunate position of needing to appeal a negative immigration decision, the odds are automatically stacked against you. Once your appeal fails, the U.S. government can deport you from the country.

If all of this sounds overwhelming it should. Immigration appeals are something you should take very seriously. When you need to appeal, you should look for the best California Immigration Appeals Attorneys you can find. Here at the Law Offices of Cobos & Ayala, we believe that our attorneys meet those standards, and we will do everything we can to see that your appeal is successful.

Appeals to the Board of Immigration Appeals

A non-resident who is denied their defense from removal and is ordered removed, deported or ordered to depart voluntarily from the United States may appeal an Immigration Judge’s decision within 30 days of the final administrative order.  It is imperative that the issues are preserved and argued by an immigration attorney in a timely, efficient and professional manner.  Sometimes appellate issues may relate to issues of fact and or law that were misconstrued, misunderstood or misapplied by the Immigration Court. Our law office has been litigating matters before the Board of Immigration Appeals for over 15 years and is well versed with its practice policies and procedures.

Petitions for Review to the Circuit Court of Appeals

If a non-citizen has been denied relief and ordered removed or ordered to depart the United States voluntarily and the Board of Immigration Appeals has sustained the Immigration Judge’s prior decision in full or in part, a non-citizen, under a limited set of circumstances, may request a petition for review with the Circuit Court of Appeals within 30 days of the decision by the Board of Immigration Appeals. Although Congress has limited circuit court jurisdiction for petitions for review in immigration cases, the circuit courts retain jurisdiction to review issues of law, constitutional claims, statutory interpretation, issues of deportability and or inadmissibility, denial of asylum claims, and denials of motions to reopen. Our law office has extensive experience in these matters and has been published in precedent decisions. See Hernandez de Anderson v. Ashcroft, 497 F.3d 927 (9th Cir. 2007); Sanchez-Cruz v. INS, 255 F.3d 775 (9th Cir. 2001).
