In Re: ——, Alton, (19, 2010)

In Re: ——, Alton, (Board of Immigration Appeals, October 19, 2010). Legal challenge: Our client was previously ordered removed by the Immigration Court and retained another attorney to reopen his case. The Immigration Court denied the motion finding that the attorney failed to obtain a signature on the client’s affidavit and denied the motion, resulting in immediate enforcement of the removal order. Action taken: Upon being hired, we appealed the Immigration Court’s decision on the basis of judicial error in denying the motion to reopen and also filed a new motion to reopen on the basis of the ineffectiveness of our client’s former attorney. Result: 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.
