Board of Immigration Appeals

The Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) is the highest administrative agency in regards to decisions made by Immigration Judges and other matters pertaining to federal immigration law. The BIA hears appeals of decisions by both Immigration Judges and certain Department of Homeland Security decisions. When the BIA hears an appeal, it has the authority to dismiss or sustain an appeal, send the case back to the Immigration Judge who made the original decision, or refer the case to the Attorney General for a determination.

A filing deadline exists in making an appeal; the appeal must be received within 30 days of the date that the Immigration Judge made his or her decision. A decision by the BIA is the final administrative decision in any case. After this decision, the case can only be further appealed in the U. S. Court of Appeals. Most BIA appeals are decided solely based upon the immigration court record and a written legal brief. This means that usually, neither you nor your attorney will have the opportunity to appear before the BIA to make an oral argument. Therefore, it is crucial that your immigration attorney has the skills to make a persuasive written argument. Kelli possesses exceptional legal research and writing skills and will work to ensure that all cognizable legal arguments are professionally and effectively presented.

If the decision you received concerning asylum, deportation or removal, or some other matter concerning immigration law is an adverse one which you wish to appeal, the Charlotte immigration attorney at the firm can advise you on all of the legal aspects of your case and on how to make an effective appeal to the BIA. Not all cases have a cognizable legal issue on which to base an appeal. Kelli Allen will thoroughly analyze your case and offer you a realistic assessment of your chances for a successful appeal.
