Individuals who have filed for immigration benefits and have not obtained any decision for unreasonably long periods may file a federal suit against USCIS, requesting a federal court judge to order the agency to finish the adjudication and make a decision on the long-delayed application or petition. Immigration litigation in federal court is evolving more and more common.
Federal courts have restricted jurisdiction, which means they are restricted in the immigration matters they can hear. However, it’s essential to note that litigation in federal court is drastically distinct from litigation in immigration courts, or proceedings before the U.S or appeals before the BIA.

The immigration attorney at Rodriguez-Martin Immigration Law Offices is prepared to help clients with immigration-related federal court litigation proceedings at any stage.
Suppose a person is denied an immigration benefit. In that case, the applicant can file a motion to reopen or reconsider to the U.S. Citizenship Immigration Services and District Director, who denied their application.
Motions to reconsider depend only on legal grounds and need well-reasoned arguments to prove the denial was based on an inaccurate law application. Motions to reopen amay be filed based on new proof or changed situations. Therefore, they need documentary proof and statements of facts.
We can help individuals to decide whether to file a motion to reopen or reconsider. If so, we can help with specifying the suitable evidence and argument to present to the District Director.
