Board of Immigration Appeals cases
Immigration petitions are administratively adjudicated by the U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS).
The decisions rendered by USCIS are always appealable to a higher authority or to a U.S. District Court.
The Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) hears family-immigration petitions (Form I-130) that are denied by the USCIS as well as adverse decisions of immigration Courts.
The vast majority of the decisions of immigration judges involve removal from the United States of undocumented immigrants and lawful permanent residents (Green Card holders) convicted of 1 or more serious crimes.
An Appeal to the BIA is timely if it is filed within 30 days from the immigration judge’s decision or USCIS denial.
A motion for a stay of removal can be filed together with a Notice of Appeal.
The decisions of the BIA are appealable to the U.S. Court of Appeals.
