Removal and Deportation Proceedings

Only an Immigration Judge can decide if you are removable, deportable or inadmissible, and whether you have relief from removal. The court process starts with a “Notice to Appear” or “NTA” from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), if it believes that you should be removed or deported from the United States, or if it considers you “inadmissible” to the United States. An Immigration Judge presides over these court hearings or proceedings which are held at US Immigration Courts in various states in the country. A removal or deportation proceeding is a formal court hearing and should be attended to timely and with all seriousness, as it can potentially impact your immigration record and can also result in your being physically deported from the United States. You may appeal to the Board of Immigration Appeals which has jurisdiction over decisions made by Immigration Judges, if the Immigration Judge denies your case. We provide Immigration law help in the following areas:

  • Criminal immigration matters
  • Cancellation of removal
  • Asylum
  • Withholding of removal
  • Granting an application for lawful permanent residence
  • Waivers
  • Motions to Reopen
  • Voluntary departure

Federal Court Litigation:

Most immigration matters involve administrative court proceedings at the US Immigration Courts and the Board of Immigration Appeals. However, federal courts like the Court of Appeals and the U.S. District Courts have jurisdiction over important immigration matters. We provide representation in the following areas:

  • Federal Circuit Court of Appeals
  • Habeas Corpus Petitions
  • Mandamus Actions

Litigating an immigration case at the administrative or federal court level is a very serious matter. Be sure to contact our experienced immigration attorney to help navigate the law of your case.
