Motion To Reopen
Motion to Reopen Attorney
in San Antonio, Texas
If you have lost your immigration court proceedings, there are still options available to you. By submitting a motion to reopen your case, it may be possible to introduce new evidence and have a court grant it to you.
A Motion to Reopen is a request to an Immigration Judge or the Board of Immigration Appeals to reopen and reconsider a case that has already ended. The purpose is to present new or changed evidence that would have had a significant impact on the original determination.
In most cases, a Motion to Reopen must be filed within 90 days of a final order. The exception to the 90-day rule is if the Motion to Reopen is being filed to rescind in Absentia Order.
If you were served a proper Notice to Appear at your first immigration court hearing but failed to appear for some reason, the judge has the power to enter an order to have you removed In Absentia.
An in Absentia Order may also be rescinded if we can demonstrate to the judge that you were in state or federal custody at the time of your hearing, or because of exceptional circumstances, such as the death or serious illness of a family member.
