    Answered . You can ask the Board to reissue the decision which may preserve the right to appeal to the Circuit Court of Appeals. However, whether this is viable depends on the facts of your case. You need to consult with an experienced immigration attorney if you want a realistic second opinion.

    Answered . Attorney will have to prove that she never received the decision. Based on such evidence, attorney should file the motion with 9th circuit and file Petition for Review or whatever next motion your case's facts dictate.

  3. Answered . You have an attorney. He/she knows the facts of your case. We do not. You need to ask your questions from your attorney.

    You are essentially asking us to second guess your attorney without having all the facts. No competent attorney is going to do that.

    You certainly are entitled to a second opinion. However, rendering a second opinion requires an analysis of all the facts, including any filings by your present attorney. That is not something that can be done for free through Avvo. You would need to retain an attorney for the purpose of giving you that second opinion.
