What Does the BIA Do?
The BIA is an administrative body made up of appellate immigration judges and located in Falls Church, Virginia. The BIA hears appeals that spring from negative decisions that impact your immigration case. Below are some of the matters the BIA regularly deals with:
- Adverse decisions from immigration officials.
- Negative rulings made by immigration judges.
- Orders for removal (deportation).
- Applications for relief from removal.
- Immigration visa petitions – excluding aliens from applying for admission.
- Immigration visa petitions – status classification of applicants.
- Immigration visa petitions – status classification of alien relatives.
- Denial of citizenship (naturalization) petition.
- Delay of citizenship.
- Bond hearings.
- Motions to reconsider.
- Motions to reopen.
Federal Court Litigation – Petition for Review
Litigation in federal court is another way to get your case heard if you have received a negative ruling at a lower level. Typically, you only have 30 days to file a petition for review in federal court, and the filing requirements are strict, so act swiftly to contact a qualified and diligent immigration attorney. Shirazi Immigration Law can take your case into federal court and argue on your behalf in the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta. Some of the reasons to go to court include:
- To challenge a final order of removal, deportation or exclusion issued by the BIA.
- To dispute an ICE removal order in some cases.
- To appeal the denial of a motion to reconsider or reopen.
- To appeal the denial of asylum in an asylum proceeding.
Administrative Appeals Office (AAO) Advocacy
The AAO is yet another avenue for justice in your immigration matter. The AAO reviews USCIS decisions made by adjudication officers regarding immigration petitions and applications for immigration benefits. Typical reasons for seeking AAO review include denials for:
- Proceedings under the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA).
- Immigrant visa petition denials (EB-2 and EB-3 visas).
- Nonimmigrant visa petition denials (H, L, O, P and Q visas).
- Application for certificate of citizenship denial (Form N-600).
- Application to preserve residence for naturalization denial (Form N-470).
- Application for Temporary Protected Status (TPS).
As with BIA appeals and federal court litigation, AAO cases have strict filing deadlines you need to be aware of to make sure your appeal is heard. Make sure your case is handled by an experienced immigration attorney who is dedicated to your success and will pursue your matter in the appropriate forum for a swift and successful resolution.
