Immigration Win Case Terminated
DHS agreed to terminate removal proceedings. Apparently, CIS agreed that Client’s Naturalization application was denied in error. Client’s father naturalized before she married and visas were current when she entered, therefore she was not inadmissible at the time of entry nor did she commit fraud. It means that the government is no longer trying to deport you and they are ending your case in immigration court. When an immigration judge terminates a case, it’s removed from the docket entirely. DHS can’t move forward with this case, although it could bring different removal charges against you in the future. The time depends on the immigration court, so it can be from a year to a year and a half. This depends on which entity last had contact with the case. If you have lost your case in immigration court, typically, you’ll have two options: (1) File an appeal within 30 days of the issuance of the deportation order; (2) File a motion to reopen with the immigration judge. Depending on the facts of your case, one or the other may be preferable. Administrative closure removes your case from the immigration judge’s immediate to-do list. This means that you are still in removal proceedings, but the government will not pursue a deportation case against you. Termination or dismissal means you no longer have an immigration case in court.
