Living in the United States without immigration documents is is difficult.

  • Maybe your husband cannot find a good-paying job because he does not have a green card or work permit.

Sometimes, filing an appeal is not your best approach to starting over. Perhaps you want to try to reopen your case.


In general, there are three situations which allow you to reopen your deportation case in immigration court.

In Absential Order Of Deportation

If you miss a hearing at immigration court, the immigration will order you to be deported in your absence. This is called an “in absentia” deportation order.

Sometimes immigrants fail to show up at immigration court because they never received the notice of the hearing date. For example, maybe the government’s letter was mailed to the wrong address. Perhaps you moved and gave your new address to the immigration court, but the judge’s secretary sent the notice to your old address.

New Evidence Or Circumstances

In some cases, after an immigrant has been ordered to be deported, new facts emerge. This evidence can open the door for you to seek relief from deportation which did not exist at the time of your immigration trial.

This is not as simple as it appears. You have to prove the new evidence could not have been discovered and presented at your earlier hearing.

Exceptional Circumstances

With these motions, you have to show something exceptional, beyond your control, kept you from showing up at your hearing. For instance, maybe you became seriously ill, a family member died. or you had a car accident on the way to court.

None of these reasons guarantee your case will be reopened. But if you’re fighting against being deported, filing a motion to reopen may give you a second chance to win your case.

Most immigration judges do not like to grant these motions. The requirements are strict. In short, these are hard cases to win. That’s why, usually, you should not try to handle these motions on your own.

After all, it’s your future at stake.
