Motion to Reopen Removal Proceedings

Javier G Pineda

Practice Area:Immigration

Outcome:Motion to reopen was granted.

Description:Client was in removal proceedings when his wife became eligible to apply for residency based on her father's family petition. While Client's case was on appeal with the Board of Immigration Appeals, previous attorneys failed to properly file a motion to remand to the Board of Immigration Appeals. I filed a motion to reopen based on ineffective assistance of counsel and it was granted over the government's opposition.
