Board of Immigration Appeals Extends Grace Period for Certain Filings Due to Extreme Weather
Due to extreme weather conditions in the Washington, D.C. area, the Board of Immigration Appeals was closed from February 5-11, 2010. Because of this, the Board has decided to apply a temporary grace period for filings that were due anytime between February 5, 2010 and February 18, 2010 and were received on or before February 19, 2010.
This grace period takes effect automatically and no requests or documentation need to be provided to the Board.
Please note that any filing that arrives after February 19, 2010 will be subject to normal filing deadlines.
