Immigration Appeals

Appeals procedure is allowed in the context of immigration law at different levels and based on different types of petitions or applications. Foreign nationals and petitioners (in some cases employers) appeal adverse decisions regarding their cases issued by the Immigration Judge, Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA), U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), and labor certifications denied by the USDOL Certifying Officer.

Here are some of the agencies where appeals concerning immigration matters are reviewed:

Attorney General (AG): May review BIA decision
