Signature of Person Serving
APPEARANCES - An appearance for each represented party shall be filed on a separate Form EOIR-27 by the attorney or
representative appearing in each appeal or motion to reopen or motion to reconsider before the Board of Immigration Appeals (see 8
C.F.R. § 1003.38(g)), even though the attorney or representative may have appeared in the case before the Immigration Judge or the
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. If information is omitted from the Form EOIR-27 or it is not properly completed, the
appearance may not be recognized and the accompanying filing may be rejected. When an appearance is made by a person acting in
a representative capacity, his/her personal appearance or signature constitutes a representation that, under the provisions in 8 C.F.R.
part 1003, he/she is authorized and qualified to represent individuals and will comply with the EOIR Rules of Professional Conduct
in 8 C.F.R. § 1003.102. Thereafter, substitution or withdrawal may be permitted upon approval by the Board of a request of the
attorney or representative of record in accordance with Matter of Rosales, 19 I&N Dec. 655 (1988). Please note that appearances for
limited purposes are not permitted. See Matter of Velasquez, 19 I&N Dec. 377, 384 (BIA 1986). Attorneys and Accredited
Representatives (with full accreditation) must first update their address in eRegistry before filing a Form EOIR-27 that reflects a
new address.
