  2. Writing a Strong Brief: After you file a Notice of Appeal, you will have an opportunity to submit more detailed information in a written brief. This document allows you to present strong arguments in support of your appeal. The court will impose specific deadlines, which must be met.
  3. Making a Powerful Oral Argument: Your LA immigration appeals lawyer can request an oral argument in your case. This will allow your attorney to present additional explanations and ensure the judges understand your points.

Filing a Notice of Appeal

The first step after an unfavorable decision in your immigration appeal case will be filing a Notice of Appeal with the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA). You must complete all sections of a Notice of Appeal form in English, and the form must be signed. If you use a translator, a translator’s statement must be completed as well.

The Notice of Appeal will require specific details about why you disagree with the decision that was made in your case. You may also include an attachment to the Notice of Appeal form to go into greater detail.

If there is a question of law, then specific legal authorities must be cited on your Notice of Appeal. If you dispute facts, then the facts being challenged should be identified and corrected.

The proper form you will need for your immigration appeal depends on the type of case you are appealing.

When Should I Use an Immigration Appeal Form EOIR-26?

If you are appealing a decision from an Immigration Judge, you will file a Notice of Appeal from a Decision of an Immigration Judge (Form EOIR-26). This includes decisions in Immigration Court, including exclusions, deportation, and removal cases. You must file this form within 30 days after the Immigration Judge’s oral or written decision. It should be filed with the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) in Falls Church, VA. It must be accompanied with a $110 fee. A fee waiver request may be submitted on Form EOIR-26A.

When Should I Use an Immigration Appeal Form EOIR-29?

If you want to appeal a decision made by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), you must use a Form EOIR-29. This form requests a review of decisions from a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Officer, such as Form I-130 petitions for a relative/family member or a Form I-360 for Amerasian, Widow(er), or Special Immigrant. It also includes the denial of a green card. This form must be submitted within 30 days of a decision by the DHS Officer. This form must also be accompanied by a $110 filing fee.

Writing Strong Briefs

When you submit your Notice of Appeal, you can indicate that you will be following up with a written brief at a later date. The written brief will allow you to go into greater detail about why you think the unfavorable decision of the Immigration Judge or USCIS should be reversed. It also gives you more time to submit your information to the BIA.

A written brief will begin with an introduction discussing the history of your case. You immigration appeal lawyer will summarize the facts for the BIA. Then, they will explain the law that should be applied to your case. If there are any persuasive legal cases with similar facts to yours, your attorney will mention those cases and draw comparisons. The BIA will be likely to follow prior case law where cases had similar facts as yours.

In a written brief, you can outline and detail your arguments regarding why the BIA should reverse the unfavorable decision and make a ruling that benefits you. It’s important to cite laws and point out facts that may have been overlooked by the lower-level immigration court.

Making Powerful Oral Arguments

The immigration appeals attorneys at Spolin Law P.C. decide the best path forward for a client’s immigration case. Call them with questions about your case: (310) 424-5816.

You may request an oral argument in front of the BIA judges. You must make such a request on the Notice of Appeal and include why you think your case warrants an oral argument before a three-judge panel of the BIA.

The Board will consider your request for an oral argument and either grant it or deny you the opportunity for an oral argument. In most cases, you must file a written brief in order to get an oral argument before the BIA.

During an oral argument, your Los Angeles immigration appeals lawyer can fully explain the information presented on your Notice of Appeal and in your written brief. The BIA judges will likely ask questions to clarify any information as well.

What If I Lose My Case at the Board of Immigration Appeals?

If the BIA does not make a decision that is favorable to your case, you can appeal that decision as well. In most cases, a BIA decision can be appealed to a U.S. Court of Appeals and then to the U.S. Supreme Court.

It’s important not to give up if your case gets denied at the BIA level. The U.S. Court of Appeals may be more likely to listen to your arguments of federal law, as they are bound to follow prior case law that is similar to yours. By working with a knowledgeable federal immigration appeals lawyer, you can fight to get the best outcome possible in your case.
