Our client was Ordered removed in December 2009 when she failed to appear for her hearing before an Immigration Judge. We filed a Motion to Reopen claiming that our client had complied with the USCIS change of address requirements but the Immigration Judge denied our request. We filed an appeal with the Board of Immigration Appeals and they agreed with our arguments that the Immigration Judge committed reversible error.
Our client was released after a bond hearing once her case was reopened. She will now be allowed to stay in the United States.
