IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT EOIR's AUTOMATED CASE INFORMATION APPLICATION and HOTLINE

Case status and hearing date information may not be updated for those cases postponed due to operational changes during the coronavirus pandemic. Following the issuance of a new hearing notice, such information will be updated. As always, court documents such as notices are your official source of information.

INFORMATION REGARDING NON-DETAINED HEARINGS

All non-detained hearings scheduled through April 10, 2020, have been postponed.

INFORMATION REGARDING MIGRANT PROTECTION PROTOCOLS (MPP) HEARINGS

Due to circumstances resulting from COVID-19, all Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) master calendar and merit hearings presently scheduled through April 22 will be rescheduled. Neither the MPP program nor any hearings will be cancelled. 

 Any individual with an MPP hearing date through April 22 should present themselves at their designated port of entry on their previously scheduled date to receive a tear sheet and hearing notice containing their new hearing dates. DHS and EOIR are deeply committed to ensuring that individuals ‘have their day in court’ while also ensuring the health and safety of aliens, our frontline officers, immigration court professionals, and our citizens.

FILINGS

Any filings due during a court closure should be filed by March 30. Filing deadlines after March 30 remain in effect subject to the discretion of the immigration judge. There is no requirement that documents be filed in person. For all courts, parties are encouraged to file by mail or by ECAS where available. For a closed court, filings should be made at the alternative court location listed.
