Advanced Topics in Motions to Reopen - Recording (.MP3)
While the INA allows for the reopening and rescission of orders of removal upon the filing of a motion to reopen, courts are continuing to place restrictions on the ability of noncitizens to reopen their cases in the “interest of finality to court processes.” The panelists will address advanced topics in filing motions to reopen with the immigration court and the Board of Immigration Appeals. These topics include overcoming the time and numerical limits on motions to reopen, motions to reopen in absentia orders of removal, Lozada motions based upon ineffective assistance of counsel, joint motions, sua sponte motions, due diligence, prejudice, and appealing denials of motions to reopen.
