Fight For Another Chance In An Immigration Appeal

If you received a denial of your petition from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), do not feel hopeless. You may still have the chance to file an appeal. Through an appeal, you get to take your case to a higher authority for a second chance regarding your visa, citizenship and naturalization, or removal.

Our immigration attorneys at Hernandez & Associates, P.C., can stand up for you during the appeal process. With decades of experience between us, we represent immigrants from around the world who hope to find a permanent home in Colorado.

What Do I Do Now?

Let’s say that you filed your petition, attended a hearing if necessary and received a denial. You can file an appeal if your case involved:

  • Excluded evidence
  • Breach of procedure
  • Witness barred from testifying
  • Judge’s error
  • Violation of your rights

You now have two options: To file an appeal with the Administrative Appeals Office (AAO), which handles visas and citizenship, or with the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA), which handles asylum and removals. If the AAO or the BIA still deny your appeal, you have one final option – a federal immigration court. You have only 30 days from the date of receiving your initial decision.

The Importance Of An Immigration Attorney

It is critical to have an immigration appeals lawyer who understands the appeals process. The steps are immensely complicated, and one mistake in the paperwork could jeopardize your appeal completely. Your attorney will give you a much stronger chance of a successful appeal than if you handled it on your own. Our immigration law team has handled thousands of immigration petitions and appeals, giving us the trustworthy experience and reliable results that you need.
