Federal Litigation

Skilled Immigration Lawyers Handling Appeals & Federal Litigation Cases

Most immigration proceedings are handled by regional immigration courts, by United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), or by the Board of Immigration Appeals. Only a small amount of cases are appealed or litigated before a federal court. Federal courts operate under different rules and regulations. As such, it is imperative that immigrants and their families that are going before a federal court seek assistance from qualified legal counsel. At Lopez & Sanchez, LLP, our experienced Chicago federal appeals & litigation attorneys have the skills and experience needed to take your claim before a federal court.

Immigration Law: Federal Litigation and Appeals

Challenging an Unreasonable Delay: If you filed a valid immigration application, yet you cannot seem to get a decision or a response from the officials at USCIS, you may be able to challenge the unreasonable delay. Unfortunately, lengthy and unjustified delays have become a major problem in our immigration system. By bringing a claim before a federal court, you may be able to compel a faster decision on your immigration application.

Challenging Denial of Naturalization: If your application for U.S. citizenship through naturalization has been denied for any reason, you are not necessarily out of luck. You have a legal right to appeal this decision in federal court. In many cases, people who have had their application for naturalization rejected find that the USCIS made the wrong decision.

Challenging the Unlawful Detention of a Loved One: Is your loved one being unlawfully detained in an ICE facility? If so, you may be able to challenge custody in federal court. Unfortunately, immigration enforcement agencies have been known to detain people, even valid U.S. citizens, without proper justification. Federal litigation may be needed to resolve the issue.

Challenging a Removal of Deportation Order: While it is notoriously difficult to do so, you may be able to challenge a removal or deportation order in federal court. This is the appropriate legal remedy in cases in which the Board of Immigration Appeals has made a serious error or a clearly erroneous decision. If you have any questions about challenging removal in court, you should speak to an experienced Chicago immigration lawyer immediately.
