Filings by Email

EOIR has established temporary email accounts for the Office of the Chief Administrative Hearing Officer (OCAHO) and the immigration courts nationwide to facilitate electronic filing for all parties while the rollout of the EOIR Courts & Appeals System (ECAS) is delayed due to COVID-19. 

Those who have already opted-in to ECAS should continue to use ECAS where it is available. Others who wish file by email may do so as instructed on the "Filing by Email - Immigration Courts" page and the "Filing by Email - Office of the Chief Administrative Hearing Officer" page, each of which outlines requirements that apply to filing by email and the email address for each immigration court and OCAHO.

Please also check any court-issued standing orders for court-specific instructions. Please note EOIR cannot provide technical support at this time. If you have questions, please contact the EOIR Office of Policy, Communications and Legislative Affairs Division at
