Motions To Reopen

Filing a motion to reopen your application for a green card can sometimes allow you to achieve your goals on your second attempt. Choosing the right West Palm Beach motion to reopen lawyer can be a good first step toward achieving a better resolution for your request and can help you to remain in the United States legally. The process for filing a motion to reopen is relatively complex and typically requires months to complete.

Two Types of Motions

Motions to reopen your case fall into two general categories:

  • If procedural mistakes were made during the initial case, your attorney may file a motion to reconsider with the Administrative Appeals Office (AAO). This agency hears appeals for denied green card applications along with other immigration issues. The AAO can reverse previous decisions made at a lower level of the immigration system and has the authority to issue a visa that can allow you to remain in the United States.
  • In most cases, however, you will need to supply new or additional information to file a motion to reopen your case. Your West Palm Beach motion to reopen lawyer will work with you to determine if any relevant facts or circumstances were not presented in your first attempt to obtain a visa.

Working with a qualified and knowledgeable attorney is the best way to address issues with denied green cards and visas. By continuing to pursue your goal of living and working in the U.S., you can often achieve the outcome you want safely and legally.
