Motion to Reopen

Motion to Reopen Prior Removal

If your case was denied by the Immigration Judge or Board of Immigration Appeals, and you have new evidence to present, you have new relief available or you were represented ineffectively by your attorney you may file a Motion to Reopen your case.  In some cases, you may file a motion to reopen if you failed to appear at your scheduled court hearing and were ordered removed In absentia (In your absence). There are different types of motions to reopen, some filed with the Immigration Court and others with ICE chief counsel.  To determine if you are eligible to reopen your case, an immigration attorney at our firm can help you navigate through your options.
