When Do You Need an Immigration Appeals Lawyer?

You might need an immigration appeals lawyer if your application for an immigration benefit has been denied by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) or an immigration judge, and you believe the decision was incorrect.

An immigration appeals lawyer can help you understand why your application was denied, whether an appeal is possible or advisable, and how to proceed with an appeal or motion.

How Much Does It Cost to Hire an Immigration Appeals Lawyer in the U.S.?

The cost to hire an immigration appeals lawyer in the U.S. can vary greatly depending on the lawyer’s experience, the complexity of your case, and geographical location. It is common for attorneys to charge flat fees for immigration appeals, which can range from $1,000 to $6,000 or more.

Some may also charge on an hourly basis, typically between $100 to $500 per hour. Always clarify the fee structure during your initial consultation.

What to Look For in an Immigration Appeals Lawyer?

Look for an immigration appeals attorney who has substantial experience with immigration law and appeals specifically. They should have a successful track record with similar cases and a thorough understanding of immigration laws and processes. Good communication skills, professionalism, and attention to detail are also important.

How to Prepare for Your Consultation With an Immigration Appeals Lawyer?

To prepare for your consultation, gather all documents related to your immigration case, including any correspondence with USCIS or the immigration court, copies of your original application, and the decision denying your application.

Here are the steps for gathering the necessary documents for your immigration appeal:

  • USCIS or Immigration Court Correspondence: You should keep any correspondence you receive from USCIS or the immigration court. This may come in the mail or, in some cases, via email. If you’ve misplaced these documents, you can request copies from USCIS or the immigration court. Keep in mind that this may take some time, so it’s best to request these as soon as possible.
  • Original Application: You should always make copies of your application and any accompanying documents before submitting them to USCIS or the immigration court. If you didn’t make copies, you could file a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with USCIS to obtain a copy of your file. Again, this process may take some time.
  • Decision Notice: After you apply for an immigration benefit, USCIS or the immigration court will send you a decision notice. This is an important document that explains why your application was denied. If you’ve misplaced this notice, you can request a copy from USCIS or the immigration court, but remember that obtaining these documents may take time.

It’s critical to keep these documents organized and readily available. They contain important information that your immigration appeals lawyer will need to understand your case and guide you through the appeal process. Also, if your address changes, inform USCIS and the immigration court promptly to ensure you receive all communications.

These steps may seem daunting, but an immigration appeals lawyer can guide you through the process and ensure you have all the necessary documentation for your appeal.

You should also make a list of any questions you have about the process and be prepared to discuss your immigration history in detail.
