Legal challenge:

Our client was previously ordered removed by the Immigration Court and retinalized to another attorney to reopen his case. The Immigration Court denied the motion because the attorney did not obtain a signature on the client’s affidavit, and this resulted in the immediate execution of the deportation order. Action Taken: Upon being hired, we appealed the decision of the Immigration Court based on a judicial error in denying the motion to reopen and we also filed a new motion to reopen the case on the basis of the ineffectiveness of the attorney that our client had. previously. Outcome: The Board of Immigration Appeals agreed with Chicago Immigration Advocates and reopened our client’s Immigration case. Our client is currently in the process of adjusting his status to lawful permanent resident.
