Immigration Appeals

Seeking Immigration Justice at Higher Levels

If you've been ordered deported by the immigration court or had an immigrant visa denied, you have options. You are entitled to take your case to the Board of Immigration Appeals and, beyond that, to the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

At the immigration law firm of Yeager & Etkind, we have extensive experience representing clients in administrative and judicial immigration appeals. With offices in Rockville, Maryland; Washington, D.C.; and Arlington and McLean, Virginia, we serve clients throughout the region. Contact us to discuss your case with an experienced immigration lawyer.

Facing Deportation and Removal From the U.S.?

The immigration courts are responsible for making decisions about deportation of people alleged to be in the U.S. illegally or in violation of the terms of their visas or green cards. Once an immigration court has made a final decision, it can be appealed.

We have represented many clients in deportation appeals. We can advise you, based on our long experience, on whether you are likely to be successful at avoiding removal from the country on appeal.

We can also address issues such as whether you will be detained or let out on bond while your appeal is pending and whether filing an appeal will allow you to remain in the U.S. while you are pursuing other options such as asylum.

Turned Down for a Visa or Green Card?

Appeals are also available in cases where Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS) has denied an employment-based, family-based or other immigrant visa or green card. There are complex criteria for people to quality for these immigration documents, and CIS can and does make some decisions that are not justified under the law.

If you are interested in appealing deportation, visa denial or any other immigration issue, contact us to discuss your options with a knowledgeable immigration attorney.
