Immigration Appeals

If you have received an unfavorable decision from the USCIS concerning a visa, asylum, adjustment of status, or any other matter, you may be able to appeal it. An appeal is a request that another authority review your decision and reverse it. 

You can file an appeal with the Administrative Appeals Office (AAO) or the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA). Your decision letter will inform you which entity will handle your appeal.

What Is a Motion to Reopen or Reconsider?

Motions to reopen or reconsider request the authority that issued an unfavorable decision to review it. You may seek a motion to reopen if you have new evidence or facts that could alter a decision. As for a motion to reconsider, you could pursue one if a judge improperly applied a law or policy in their initial decision. You can file a motion to reopen and reconsider at the same time. 

Motions Before Immigration Courts

In addition to motions to reopen or reconsider with the BIA, you can pursue other types of motions during immigration court proceedings. These include but are not limited to motions to change venue, advance a hearing, or recalendar a case. These motions could benefit your case, helping you get an urgent decision or making it easier for you to attend hearings. Ultimately, these things may increase the chances of securing a decision that aligns with your needs.
