Phoenix Immigration Appeal Attorneys

Appealing Your Case to the Board of Immigration Appeals

The Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) is located in the Executive Office of Immigration Review at Falls Church, Virginia. It is the “highest administrative body for interpreting and applying immigration laws.”

Although the BIA hears oral arguments on rare occasions, its 15 board members are mainly responsible for reviewing the decisions of lower courts that are on appeal. This includes decisions from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), immigration court judges, and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) bureau offices.

The BIA hears a variety of cases, including those pertaining to:

  • Orders of removal/deportation
  • Applications for relief from removal/deportation
  • Alien exclusion from legal entry into the United States
  • Motions to reopen or reconsider proceedings
  • Petition denials by the USCIS
  • Classification of an alien for visa purposes

Submitting an Appeal to the BIA

After an immigration judge renders his decision, either orally or in writing, a party has the option of filing an appeal with the Board of Immigration Appeals. Once the party files this appeal with the BIA, the lower court is divested of its jurisdiction.

Once the BIA makes a decision, it is legally binding, meaning that all immigration judges and DHS officers must comply with the board’s decision (unless the decision is overturned in federal court because of a lower court’s procedural violation). The U.S. Attorney General may also overturn a decision made by the BIA.

You can count on the Phoenix immigration appeal attorneys at Maria Jones Law Firm to handle your case in the most efficient and professional manner possible. Please call (602) 603-4032 today.
