When an immigration agency refuses to produce the records that immigration attorneys need to provide effective assistance of counsel and procedural due process to their client in removal proceedings, the only option is to file a federal lawsuit under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). Our experts discuss recent FOIA case precedent, as well as the most effective way to litigate a FOIA case and conduct discovery of the agency before, and during, litigation.

  • What to Ask for in Your FOIA Request
  • When to File Suit and What to Include in Your FOIA Complaint

  • Agency Misrepresentation During Litigation, and How to Deal with It
