Appeals | Root Law Group


There are many types of appeals for immigration cases. Where an appeal must be filed depends on which department or agency issued the denial. For instance, with deportation/removal cases, a denial of an Immigration Judge can be appealed to the Board of Immigration Appeals. A decision from the Board of Immigration Appeals can be appealed to the Federal Court of Appeal in the appropriate circuit.

Depending on where a criminal relief case originates (state or federal), the case can be appealed from the trial court to the appellate court and ultimately either the State Supreme Court (if it is a state case) and U.S. Supreme Court (if it is a federal case).

Because appeals have various procedures and strict deadlines, it is important to retain a qualified immigration attorney to make sure that the appeal is filed correctly.
