By Immigrants’ Legal Advocacy Project

ILAP has created a new resource to guide asylum seekers and others with cases in immigration court through the process of calling the court’s hotline (1-800-898-7180) to find out information about their immigration cases. You can find our step-by-step guide here!

Calling the hotline is the easiest and most reliable way to find out information regarding immigration court cases, including the date, time, and location and the number of days an asylum application has been pending. During the COVID-19 pandemic when there’s so much upheaval, uncertainty, and rescheduling, having access to this hotline is especially important! 

For individuals with cases in immigration court, including asylum cases, ILAP recommends that you call the hotline a minimum of once per week to ensure you are up to date on information about your case.

As of May 4, non-detained hearings in immigration court have been postponed through May 29th. If you have a scheduled hearing in immigration court during this time period, you will receive a new notice at a future date.
PLEASE NOTE: The immigration court hotline (1800 number) may not be up to date for your postponed case.
Immigration court will keep its status updated here: Double check the court’s status before your scheduled hearing!

We’ll be making more self-help and legal information available online over the coming weeks here:
