How to Change Your Immigration Court Hearing Location

Don’t be discouraged by the distance between your immigration court case and your home, because you have the right to take action. In order to request a change in location for your immigration court hearing, you need to file a Motion to Change Venue with the court where the hearing is scheduled.

The specific requirements for a Motion to Change Venue are the following:

  • It must adhere to all of the requirements in the Immigration Court Practice Manual
  • It must provide your valid reasons for requesting a change in venue
  • It must be filed on time or it will be denied. It must be received by the court at least 15 days before your scheduled court date. But the sooner, the better.

According to 8 C.F.R. § 1003.20(b) of the Code of Federal Regulations, an immigration judge may change the venue of your case upon a showing of good cause. The Board of Immigration Appeals determine good cause by accessing certain factors which are relevant to the location issue.

These factors include:

  • Location of witnesses
  • Cost of transporting witnesses
  • Administrative convenience
  • Expeditious treatment of the case
