Administrative Closure

Can Administrative Closure help you stay in the United States?

If you’re facing removal proceedings, you may be able to benefit from a tool used by immigration judges called “Administrative Closure.” If argued correctly, Administrative Closure allows your case to be removed from the calendar at Immigration Court. And though it’s not a guarantee, cases that are removed from the Immigration Court calendar often never re-appear back on the calendar at all.

How Does Administrative Closure Affect Your Case?

A favorable ruling on Administrative Closure is not the same as a visa, and it doesn’t even mean that you’ve prevailed in your immigration case. But it could provide the time you need to hear back about an application for Asylum, Cancellation of Removal, or other things that are relevant to your case. For example, if you have a valid work permit, you may be able to continue working and renewing your work permit indefinitely if the judge grants Administrative Closure in your case.

Right now is a great time to file an application for Administrative Closure, and the immigration attorneys at Novo Legal have delivered for our clients in hundreds of cases like this.
