Protecting Immigration Rights In Federal Court
U.S. immigration law is a complex web that involves numerous federal agencies – the United States Citizenship And Immigration Services (USCIS), the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR), the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) and the U.S. Immigration And Customs Enforcement (ICE), to name a few. When these agencies make adverse decisions, people seeking immigration benefits may have the option to appeal to federal court.
At Pastor & Associates P.C., our immigration lawyers have been successfully litigating tough cases in federal court since 1994. During that time, we have built respected reputations among the judiciary for our skill, professionalism, credibility and thoroughness. You can benefit from that reputation when you enlist us to handle your case. We take cases that are complex and are passionate about protecting your interests – and your ability to accomplish your dreams here in the U.S.
Navigating Federal Immigration Litigation
Both federal district courts and federal circuit courts are avenues where you can find relief. Federal district courts can look at delayed cases to issue an order also known as a writ of mandamus. Ms. Pastor filed her first mandamus action in 1994. Federal district courts can also in extremely limited circumstances review a noncitizen’s detention by ICE. These are just a few examples of the types of cases that our attorneys have successfully resolved.
Federal circuit courts review denials of BIA decisions. Our attorneys are fully knowledgeable in the intricacies of handling immigration appeals in the federal circuit court.
We can help you seek federal court review of decisions involving:
- Removal (deportation) orders
- Denied visa petitions
- Denied asylum applications
- Other adverse immigration decisions
- Habeas corpus petitions
- Writs of mandamus
- Cases stuck in administrative processing
Federal courts have the power to compel immigration agencies to make a decision in cases involving needless administrative delays or other violations of your rights. We can pursue the right kind of petition to help you secure a favorable outcome.
