Federal Courts

Each year, thousands of immigration-related cases are decided in the Federal Courts. In the deportation context, cases decided by Immigration Judges can be appealed to the Board of Immigration Appeals and from there, nondiscretionary matters may be appealed to the U.S. Courts of Appeals.

When the USCIS holds a petition or application for an unreasonably long time, the petitioner or applicant can request that a Federal Judge issue a Writ of Mandamus compelling the agency to take action on the pending matter.

Over the past 30 years, our law firm has won a number of significant victories for our clients in Federal Court.
