Appealing a removal order can be a complex process

| May 6, 2020 | Uncategorized

Immigration laws are complex, and there are changes to these laws on a regular basis. As a result, it can be difficult for an individual or Florida family to accomplish their immigration goals. While trying to get a green card or take the next step in the immigration process, it may become necessary to take steps to appeal a removal order.

It can be devastating to learn of a removal order, as this means the government intends to remove that individual from the United States. This can feel like a setback for many hardworking families and individuals who have been trying to obtain permission to live and work in the country. There are options for appealing this type of order and finding other alternatives than removal.

There are various appeals available to someone facing a removal order. The Board of Immigration Appeals and Circuit Court of Appeals consider these requests, or it may be possible to successfully file a motion to reopen an immigration case that was originally denied. There are also motions to stay deportation and motions for ICE stay of deportation. The right appeal or course of action depends on the details of the individual case.

It’s not easy to know what to do when an immigration case does not go as planned. While it’s intimidating to face the threat of removal, appealing a removal order is possible. Because of the various options available and the complex nature of these situations, it is beneficial to work with an experienced Florida immigration attorney from the very beginning of the process.
