We have been informed by the Court Administrator that it will be increasingly difficult to complete the eRegistration process after September, as there will no longer be any on-site personnel authorized to complete the process.  eRegistration validation will need to be scheduled on a case-by-case basis after September.
 
Please see below detailed instructions regarding the eRegistration process. 
 
Remember that you must first complete the initial online registration, available at http://www.justice.gov/eoir/engage/eRegistration.htm, before appearing in-person at court. 
 

 
eRegistration Validation Process
                             New York City Immigration Court
                                                                                                            
 
INTRODUCTION                  
Welcome to the eRegistration validation process! Attorneys and accredited representatives are required to register with EOIR in order to represent aliens before the Immigration Courts and Board of Immigration Appeals.  Registration is an electronic process that requires the attorney or accredited representative to enter and maintain a profile of their information in order to receive an EOIR Identification number.  Attorneys and accredited representatives will register once to be able to appear before all Immigration Courts and the Board of Immigration Appeals. Registration is not particular to one court.  This guide is designed to assist you with the Identification Validation process at the court. 
 
IDENTIFICATION VALIDATION
Identification validation will begin at the New York Immigration Court on June 10, 2013.  Completing the registration process requires that the attorney present a photo identification to immigration court personnel.  Immigration Court personnel will review the photo identification presented by the attorney or accredited representative and enter this information into EOIR’s Identity Manager System to complete the registration process.
 
NOTE: LEGAL ASSISTANTS, SECRETARIES, PARALEGALS, AND ANY OTHER PERSONNEL MAY NOT REGISTER ON BEHALF OF THE ATTORNEY OR ACCREDITED REPRESENTATIVE. THE ATTORNEY OR ACCREDITED REPRESENTATIVE MUST APPEAR IN PERSON TO HAVE HIS OR HER IDENTITY VALIDATED.
 
HOW TO REGISTER
Registration at the New York Immigration Court will be held for attorneys that normally practice at the NYC (26 Federal Plaza), NYD (Varick St), Bedford Hills, Ulster, and Downstate Courts.
 
You can complete your eRegistration by coming to the Immigration Court at: 26 Federal Plaza, 12th Floor, Court Room # 19, New York, NY 10278.  Once you arrive at Court Room 19, please indicate that you wish to complete your eRegistration.  The New York Court will follow this schedule for validation from July 29 until September 20, 2013
