The attorneys at Walker & Associates represent people or employers who wish to appeal an adverse decision from the immigration agency, from the immigration court, or from a federal appellate court.
Federal immigration-related agencies often have their own appellate review “courts ” — the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA), the Administrative Appeals Office (AAO), the Office of Chief Administrative Hearing Officers (OCAHO), (BALCA), and others. If you believe the government made a mistake in deciding your case, you may have a right to have the matter reviewed before one of these administative agency “courts.”
Immigration law is very complex. It is not always easy to determine if you have the right to appeal an adverse decision, to whom you should appeal the decision and how, within what time frame you must file an appeal, and how much the appeal costs. The attorneys at Walker & Associates will evaluate your eligibility to appeal and assist you in this regard. It is critical that you contact an attorney as soon as you receive an adverse decision by immigration authorities because some appeals are time-limited.
There are other immigration appeals that go outside the immigration agencies and are decided by the federal courts. Some appeals are brought before a U.S. District Court, a federal circuit Court of Appeals, or the United States Supreme Court. The attorneys at Walker & Associates represent individuals who wish to appeal a decision by immigration authorities to the federal courts.
