Immigration Appeals in San Jose, California

san jose immigration appeals lawyer

Immigration appeals can be defined as the legal realm focused on challenging or contesting determinations made by immigration authorities. Given the vibrant and diverse population within the city of San Jose, which hosts sizable immigrant communities, the demand for legal representation in immigration matters is notably significant.

In many instances, individuals or their legal representatives may find themselves at odds with decisions rendered by immigration authorities such as the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), or the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA). These determinations can involve the rejection of visa applications, deportation orders, or the denial of various immigration benefits.

An individual or their representative may perceive that a decision made by the immigration authorities is erroneous or unjust. They possess the right to initiate an appeal with the appropriate appellate body. Within the United States, this typically entails filing an appeal with the Administrative Appeals Office (AAO), the BIA, or the federal courts, contingent upon the specific circumstances of the case.

Immigration appeals necessitate a thorough comprehension of immigration laws, regulations, and pertinent legal precedents, as well as an understanding of procedural requisites. At Getachew & Ansari Immigration Attorneys, we have established our expertise in this specific legal domain in San Jose, California. Our team possesses extensive experience in championing the rights of our clients, formulating persuasive arguments, and preparing compelling legal briefs to substantiate their appeals.

Case Results and Success Stories

The following are a few of hundreds of cases undertaken and executed by Getachew & Ansari Immigration Attorneys:

Ethiopian Couple Reunited: An Ethiopian national and their U.S. citizen fiancé obtained a Fiance petition. They were able to reunite and get married in the United States. With the assistance of Medya Ansari, the process took less than eight months.

Iranian National Detained at Arizona Border: Medya Ansari offered pro bono representation to an Iranian national who was detained at the Arizona border by ICE. This individual belonged to a minority Sunni religion in Iran and had spoken out against the government. He feared persecution and death upon return. Initially denied by the asylum office and an Immigration Judge, Medya persisted and filed a request for redetermination which was granted. As a result, the client is no longer at risk of deportation and can present their full asylum case in immigration court.

Nigerian Woman Granted Asylum: A Nigerian woman sought asylum in the United States after enduring severe domestic violence and opposing harmful cultural practices, including Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). She had entered the U.S. on a visiting visa and, with the assistance of Medya Ansari, filed for asylum two and a half years later. Thanks to Medya’s help, she was granted asylum providing her with safety and protection in the United States.
