Motions to Reopen

We Provide Experienced Representation in Cases Involving Motions to Re-Open Immigration Proceedings

Proven New York Immigration Attorney with Nationwide Practice

Though deportations are supposed to take place within 90 days after an Order of Removal becomes final, that seldom happens because immigration authorities have limited resources and may have higher priorities. As a result, you may have been ordered removed from the country months or years ago, but remain in the United States. Often, the longer you stay here, the more ties you have and the more reasons you may have for seeking lawful permanent residency. You may have married an American citizen, started a family, taken a good job and become a contributing member of your community, but there’s still a removal order hanging over your head.

Fortunately, you can file a request to reopen your immigration proceeding and have your status changed. It’s a complex process, though, so you want an experienced and knowledgeable lawyer to take you through the process. Attorney Jamal Jbara can help.

At the Long Island City law offices of Jamal Jbara, we have over 20 years of experience protecting the rights of people with immigration challenges, including men and women seeking to reopen an immigration proceeding to cancel a removal order and pursue lawful permanent residency. We are licensed to provide immigration counsel in all 50 states.

Over the past two decades, we have represented hundreds of people with immigration issues. We have seen significant changes in the laws and regulations governing immigration, and work hard to keep current with all developments in the immigration laws and regulations, so that we fully protect your rights.

We know that one of the keys to getting positive results is building a strong relationship with our clients. We’ll take the time to listen closely, so that we understand the details of your situation and what you need to successfully resolve your dispute. We know that every situation is unique and will always pay close attention to your specific challenges and goals. We won’t take your case if we don’t believe we can win. We’ll provide you with an honest and thorough consultation, carefully explaining your rights, as well as your options and likelihood of success, so that you can make informed decisions about what’s best for you and your loved ones.
