Motions to Reopen

If you have been ordered deported, you may be able to file a Motion to Reopen your case. There are various different rationales for reopening your case. Some of the the possible legal arguments that might fit your situation are:

  • Ordered deported and never received notice of your hearing
  • New evidence that was not available when your case was pending
  • Became eligible for a new form of relief
  • Ineffective representation by prior attorney

Motions to Reopen generally need to filed within 90 days of the Immigration Judge's order. There are exceptions to this deadline. If you never received notice of the hearing, you may be able to file a Motion to Reopen past the 90 day deadline. An experienced attorney may also be able to move the Immigration Judge to reopen your cases decades later! Dorsett Immigration Law has reopened deportation proceedings and obtained green cards decades after the deportation order.
