EOIR Updates Policies on Filings and Signatures

EOIR released a memo (PM 20-11) updating EOIR’s policies regarding permissible signatures on documented filed with the immigration courts and the Board of Immigration Appeals. As of March 31, 2020, EOIR has begun accepting digital and electronic signatures on all documents filed with it, whether those documents are filed by mail, in person, or electronically. In addition, EOIR will accept electronically-reproduced copies of documents containing digital, electronic, or “wet” signatures. EOIR will also continue to accept original documents containing wet signatures.
