Few things are more terrifying than the prospect of being deported against your will. However, if you are in the United States illegally or have done something to violate the terms of your visa, green card, or another residence permit, the U.S. Immigration Court might have placed you into removal proceedings.
Basis of Appeal
If the court has already determined you should be deported, appealing the court’s decision is the most critical step you can take to avoid removal from the country. Appealing your case depends on what you were alleging or requesting in the first place. It’s not a second chance for someone to consider your case; instead, you must have a rational basis upon which to argue the court made a legal error resulting in your removal.
For example, if you requested asylum and the judge made a mistake in not acknowledging you are part of a hated social group in your home country, an appeal would be the perfect way to point out this error. However, if you committed a crime that resulted in deportation, there might be no point in filing an appeal.
