Litigation simply means the process of trying a court case. Immigration litigation is, therefore, trying a court case that involves immigration. Immigration litigation can take place in many courts, including the Board of Immigration Appeals, Federal District Courts, Federal Circuit Courts of Appeals, and the U.S. Supreme Court.
An appeal is simply a request for a judge to revisit the decision made by another judge (or agency). Appeals may occur in affirmatively filed petitions before USCIS and in removal proceedings before the Immigration Court. In immigration court, the government can also ask to appeal your case if they think a judge made a mistake in your favor.
Not all cases can be challenged in federal court. Poarch Thompson Law attorneys will be honest about your chances in federal court, the costs of litigation, and the benefits and burdens of litigating. Speak with us immediately if you need to make an immigration appeal.
