Immigration Court and the Board of Immigration Appeals (“BIA”) are part of the Executive Office for Immigration Review (“EOIR”). I often get phone calls from people who do not know the status of their immigration case. EOIR has an 800# that can be used to check on the status of cases for individuals who are facing deportation. If you are in removal proceedings or have been in removal proceedings, then your information should be available on the 800#. The # is 1-800-898-7180. When you call, you will need to have your alien number. The 800 # is automated. If you follow the instructions, you can find out the following information: (1) the next hearing date; (2) if there has been a decision by the immigration judge; (3) if there has been an appeal to the BIA; and (4) if there have been any decisions by the BIA. Also, if you are seeking asylum, the 800# will let you know how many days have expired on your asylum clock.
