In this Zoom workshop, we will discuss the various bases for filing a motion to reopen and grapple with strategy decisions that are often at play after the entry of a removal order. We will discuss when and how to file a motion to reopen after a removal order has been entered against a noncitizen and review the important time and numerical limitations for the different types of motions to reopen. We will practice spotting scenarios in which we should utilize motions to reopen in favor of our clients and answer questions related to timing and strategy. We will specifically address motions to reopen in the context of in absentia removal orders, motions based on eligibility for asylum or other relief, and cases where there is a history of ineffective assistance of prior counsel.
