Tifton BIA & Federal Court Litigation Lawyer
There are lots of reasons the government might have for denying your immigration visa application. You might be ineligible due to one or more criteria, or you might have made a mistake on your application or failed to submit appropriate documentation. There are ways to correct errors, and even if you’ve been declared ineligible, you might be able to get a waiver or fight the government’s decision.

Can You Handle My BIA Appeal From Tifton?
The BIA hears appeals when you receive an unfavorable ruling from an immigration judge. The BIA is located in Falls Church, Virginia. Most cases are decided based on a “paper review,” meaning you do not have to travel to Virginia to be heard. We can handle your BIA appeal from our offices in Tifton and Atlanta. In the event an oral argument is scheduled for your case, we’ll appear on your behalf at BIA headquarters or wherever the appeal is scheduled to be heard.
Here are some of the reasons you might want to appeal your case to the BIA:
- Suspension of Deportation
- Cancellation of Removal
- Deferred Action
- Reopening or Reconsideration of Final Orders for Removal
- Delay or denial of citizenship
- Issues with a visa petition
Federal Court Litigation in Atlanta
If the BIA ruling is unfavorable and grounds exist to appeal, we’ll take your case into federal court. If your immigration hearing was held in Atlanta, the appropriate federal court to hear your appeal is the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, also headquartered in Atlanta.
In addition to appeals from adverse BIA decisions, the federal court can hear other immigration matters. Call Shirazi Immigration Law in Tifton to discuss your options for federal court litigation in any of the following situations:
- Action or decision on a petition
- Application was unreasonably delayed
- USCIS denied naturalization citizenship application
- Unlawfully kept in ICE custody
- Denial of a removal order based on legal or constitutional grounds
You only have 30 days from the date of the BIA or ICE decision to file with the federal court, so make sure and act quickly to contact a knowledgeable and diligent immigration attorney who is equipped to handle your litigation.
