Motions to Reopen / Reconsider

If your case was denied, sometimes you can get a second bite at the apple.  We know multiple ways to get your case reheard.  Did your prior attorney make huge mistakes?  Did you miss a hearing or interview due to circumstances beyond your control?  Are there new facts or circumstances in your case?  Perhaps the law has changed?  Maybe the prior decisionmaker got the law or facts wrong?  All of these situations could be grounds for reopening or reconsideration.  

Generally, you must file for reconsideration or reopening within 30- or 90-days from the decision, respectively.  There are some exceptions to this rule.  Our attorneys have successfully reopened and won cases decades after the original decision.
