Motions to Reopen
Non-citizens with final orders of removal may move in certain circumstances to have their removal proceedings reopened in order to have a new adjudication on their removability from the U.S. Filing a Motion to Reopen is extremely important for noncitizens with final removal orders who are being held in immigration detention, because they are especially vulnerable to immediate removal from the U.S. The materials on this page will assist pro bono attorneys with every stage of filing a motion to reopen before an immigration judge or the Board of Immigration Appeals.
