If you are in removal or deportation proceedings before an Immigration Judge, and you want to apply for immigration benefits, you need to use one of the appropriate immigration court forms.
When I was an INS Trial Attorney in the 1980s, I remember that many persons who were not represented by an immigration attorney often had no idea what forms to use, or even, what they were eligible to apply for.
There are forms for adjustment of status, asylum, cancellation of removal for permanent residents and for non-permanent residents, all kinds of waivers, etc. And if you need to appeal the decision of the Judge to the Board of Immigration Appeals, there are forms for this as well.
We link to all the forms you need in the chart below. Just click on the appropriate link and print the forms you need.
Go to a Law Firm which is Professional and Knowledgeable
“Very professional law firm. We had a difficult issue and Mr. Shusterman’s office got right onto the case and resolved the issue with USCIS. Because of their efforts, me and my family were able to get our Legal Permanent Residency card. My suggestion to those trying to obtain employment based card. Don’t look for money saving attorney. They will cost you lot more in long run. Go to a law firm which is professional and knowledgeable. It pays in the long term.”

To read and print an EOIR form, however, you must have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed in your computer. Adobe Systems, Inc., offers this software free of charge to the public.
