I understand that you can only appeal BIA decision to the

I understand that you can only appeal BIA decision to the circuit court on denying asylum due to untimeliness of filing within 1 year of arrival if the denial on changed circumstances ONLY deals with QUESTION OF LAW and NOT a question of fact. It was argued on appeal to BIA that the changed circumstances occurred shortly before filing for asylum (6 months) because the new case law indicated that an abused spouse in the country of origin can use this argument to file for an asylum. However BIA argued that this new case law started to develop well before the asylum application was filed. Is it a question of law or a question of fact on when the new case law took effect in relation to changed circumstances?

Am I correct to say that only FINAL removal orders from BIA

Am I correct to say that only FINAL removal orders from BIA can be appealed to the circuit court? If that the case -- how can I appeal the unfavorable decision from BIA on granting asylum while at the same time I have received a favorable decision in the same order regarding withholding of removal. In other words -- there is no order of removal -- but I still want to appeal the asylum part of the decision to the circuit court -- how can I do this?

My son is being charged nearly $50K in restitution to an

My son is being charged nearly $50K in restitution to an insurance company for the subsidized housing apartment he lived in. He is mentally challenged and thought setting a fire in the bathtub was a good idea instead of taking the trash out. Dumb yes. The housing authority staff said on site that he thought it wouldn't be more than $15K to repair the damages. Fair enough. At the sentencing the DA provided a very general estimate of repair that included replacing all the appliances and kitchen cabinets! The fire was no where near it and was out before the fire crew arrived so there was no water damage and very little smoke damage. It galls me that there may be fraud going on here at my son's expense. He works part time at McDs so you can imagine how he'll never get it paid off. I contacted the PA housing & redevelopment agency who forwarded my message to the insurance company. The rep was zero interested stating that the monies were paid out and the case is closed. I'm stumped as to why they aren't even the least interested in the fact that they may have been ripped off for $30,000.00. What's my next step or is it truly a closed matter?

I was honorably separated from the Army in 2004. Even though I complained about headaches from an IED blast and symptoms of PTSD. I was not afforded the opportunity to get medical or mental health treatment. I think because we were a reserve unit the chain of command was more concerned about getting home than staying at Ft Bragg because of a medical issue. Can I petition to be medically retired?
