About Joint Motions to Reopen
Normally, a motion to reopen can only be filed within 90 days of a decision by the Board of Immigration Appeals or an Immigration Judge.
If you have a final order of removal for more than 90 days and become eligible for a green card, but for your removal order, then there is a special procedure for reopening your case to apply for a green card before the Immigration Judge. This is called a joint motion to reopen. It is called a joint motion to reopen because it is done by writing to the Litigation Unit of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement and requesting that they agree to join in your request to reopen your case.
If the Litigation Unit agrees, they will sign a paper, called a joint motion to reopen, that will be submitted to the Immigration Judge or the Board.
