Motion to Reopen
If the Immigration Court has decided to deport you and you believe it was incorrect, you still have options. Even a filing order of removal can be challenged under certain circumstances.. When a negative ruling occurs, you may be able to file for a motion to reopen.
A motion to reopen asks the court to reexamine the case. To successfully do this, there has to be new evidence that was discovered after the conclusion of the case. In a reopened case, the new evidence will be heard by the exact same judge, who will then render an updated verdict. In the case of immigration, the verdict may mean the difference between staying in the country and being deported.
