Fort Lauderdale Federal Review of Immigration Appeals Lawyer

Board of Immigration Appeals

The Board of Immigration Appeals, also known as BIA, falls within the Executive Office for Immigration Review, which itself is part of the Federal Department of Justice. The Board of Immigration Appeals is an administrative body which, except under rare circumstances, deals with courtroom proceedings. Its purpose is to interpret and apply laws dealing with immigration.

The BIA has the responsibility to hear appeals from some decisions that have been made by immigration judges and Department of Homeland Security officials. These cases involve the United States Government and an alien, citizen or a business. Decisions made by the BIA can be overruled by the Attorney General or reviewed by a federal court. Generally, BIA decisions will be reviewed in this manner. The federal court can modify or overrule the BIA decision.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will file a Notice to Appear with an immigration court. The Notice to Appear requires that the individual appear in the court, gives the details of the alleged violations of immigration law, gives notice of the removal proceedings, and the consequences of failing to appear at scheduled hearings. It is possible to establish that the individual can qualify for relief from removal under various circumstances. It is important to know how to provide the information correctly in order to qualify for relief from removal.
