SKJ Juris specializes in providing immigration support to US Immigration appellate attorneys in agency appeals, writs, litigation and review matters.
The Board of Immigration Appeals receives many appeals every day. Presenting concise and persuasive arguments is imperative for a successful immigration appeal.After a Notice of Appeal has been filed, US Immigration attorneys are required to comb through the records of each proceeding pertaining to their immigration cases for legal issues. SKJ Juris conducts thorough research of those issues and craft a persuasive legal brief which is sent to Immigration attorneys for their finalization and presentation to BIA.
Immigration petitions for review to Federal Circuit Courts of Appeals must be filed within 30 days of the date of the final Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) decision that is being challenged.Types of immigration decisions that may be reviewed include a decision by BIA to issue a final removal order, deny a motion to reconsider or a motion to reopen, or deny asylum. Additionally, an order of removal by ICE under INA § 241(a)(5) or INA § 238(b) may also be reviewed by Circuit Courts of Appeals.A petition for review of a BIA or ICE decision involves legal, constitutional, factual, or discretionary claims. New facts may not be introduced in a petition to the Federal Circuit Courts of Appeals. Instead, a petition for review may assert that BIA or ICE misapplied or misinterpreted the law, BIA or ICE violated a constitutional right such as due process or, BIA or ICE made erroneous factual determinations, and/or BIA or ICE abused its discretion in reaching its decision. SKJ Juris handles drafting of review petitions for US Immigration appellate attorneys and conducts legal research in AILA and LexisNexis wherever necessary.
