With the government having issued numerous draconian policies in recent years coupled with backlogs due to the remaining effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic, most people feel the cards are stacked against them. When a case is denied either in Immigration Court or by United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the fight does not end there. In most cases individuals have 30 days from the date a decision was entered to appeal the matter to a higher court.

Many people that have filed cases with USCIS have yet to have their cases adjudicated after an unreasonable amount of time that has lapsed. Individuals in this predicament have tools at their disposal to force USCIS to make a decision on their case via federal litigation. Here at Michael Mendez, P.A. we have been successful in appealing to the Board of Immigration Appeals relating to appeals in immigration court and have forced USCIS to take action on delayed cases by suing them in federal court.

If you find yourself in a situation where your case has been denied or it is just not moving after being outside normal processing times, please note time is of the essence.
