Get help finding the Right Immigration Lawyer for your case
When the Board of Immigration (BIA) or Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has decided to deport someone from the United States, that person has the option of filing a petition for review to the United States Court of Appeals. A petition for review is an opportunity to review legal and procedural issues and facts omitted during the lower count.
An immigration attorney has the ability to prepare a client's case by conducting a thorough investigation into constitutional, evidential, and legal issues involved in the client's case. Filing a petition for review can be complicated since a number of issues are involved and must be presented in a convincing, understanding manner for the appeals court to consider.
In preparing for a petition for review an attorney can investigate the reasons for your deportation or removal, interview witnesses and gather evidence while highlighting constitutional and legal issues that are often overlooked by the BIA and ICE.
When a lower court issues a ruling, certain evidentiary or constitutional considerations may have been overlooked. The Real ID ACT, the court of appeals can consider legal and procedural issues, as well as facts that a lower court might have overlooked. Immigration attorneys can conduct their own investigation by subpoenaing records and interviewing government agents to make sure your case was handled according to the law.
