Louisville Immigration Appeal Lawyers

A deportation or removal ruling in Immigration Court is not necessarily the end. The Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) exists to take a second look at cases called into question. The BIA, located in Falls Church, Virginia, is the highest administrative body for interpreting and applying immigration laws. Only cases deserving of appeal are allowed to go forward. The Board can grant, deny or order further review, or even remand the case to the immigration judge.

Louisville Immigration Appeal Attorneys

Only licensed lawyers and BIA-certified representatives can represent those who submit an appeal. Vickerstaff Law Office, PSC, is proud of its appeals work, for the quality of our arguments and the success our Kentucky clients have enjoyed.

A BIA appeal is not a full-blown trial but an opportunity to state any flaws in a judgment. The appeals process is a lengthy one, usually taking two full years. Nevertheless, the process is largely academic, requiring extensive knowledge of the law, a strong handle on relevant citations and precedents and persuasive writing ability. The attorney may point out that the previous ruling was based on incorrect facts. Sometimes, the law was not explained correctly, and the appeal is based on that.

Our Louisville lawyers will take the time to understand your unique situation. We want to write the best possible appeal so you have the maximum chance to avoid deportation and stay in the U.S.
