Long Beach Immigration Lawyer for Motions to Reopen

Helping Immigration Clients in Long Beach, Bellflower, San Pedro, Torrance, Norwalk, and North Orange County

If you think an error has been made by U.S. immigration authorities in their decision concerning your immigration application or petition, several steps are available for you to take in requesting that the decision be reconsidered. A motion to reopen your case or a motion to reconsider your case may be filed. Such motions require that you state specific reasons for why your case should be reopened or reconsidered.

In instances where a motion to reopen needs filing, you will need the legal services of an experienced immigration attorney.

Immigration Motions to Reopen

A motion to reopen your immigration case must contain new facts about your case and affidavits or other evidence to support those facts. Motions to reconsider must state a reason for the reconsideration and provide evidence that the original decision was made in error. All motions must be filed within 30 days of the most recent decision in the case and made to the agency officer responsible for that decision. Even though a motion has been filed, it does not change or delay any action which is scheduled to occur as a result of the original decision, such as a deportation or removal. This long-standing law is in flux as of January 2009 and an immigration attorney such as Ms. McGill should be consulted.
