Appendix J - Filing Motions

Where to File a Motion

This Appendix provides guidance on where to file documents in removal proceedings. Parties should still review the pertinent regulations and must be careful to observe the rules regarding filings, especially the time and number limits on motions. See ICPM, 5.3 (Motion Limits); BIA PM, Chapter 5.3 (Motion Limits). In cases in which the immigration court has jurisdiction, documents must be filed with the immigration court having administrative control over the Record of Proceedings. See ICPM, Chapter 3.1 (Delivery and Receipt); BIA PM, Chapter 3.1 (Delivery and Receipt). Please also refer to the ECAS information in General Reference Materials.
