First Steps When You Receive a Negative Immigration Decison

Deportation involves the formal removal of a foreign national from the United States for violating an immigration law. If you’ve received a negative decision in your immigration case, hope is not lost. Learn what to do if you’re facing deportation.

Removal Proceedings

Deportation proceedings begin when one of the following occurs:

  • Criminal investigation or conviction
  • Failure to maintain status
  • Illegal presence
  • Student visa holders dropping below required credit hours
  • Denied immigrant benefit applications

If an immigration judge has ruled you should be deported after your removal proceedings, you may appeal the decision. This involves filing an appeal to the Board of Immigration Appeals in Falls Church, Virginia. You have 30 days from receiving notice of the judge’s decision to file an appeal.

Due to the strict time frame and the complex legal process involved in a deportation appeal, as well as the potential consequences for you and your loved ones if you’re removed from the country, we highly recommend working with an experienced immigration attorney during the appeal process.
