Defending a deportation case in Immigration Court is unlike any other kind of court proceeding. Although deportation cases are considered civil cases, to the individual involved the process feels very much like criminal court. There is a charging document (the Notice to Appear), a prosecuting attorney (the Assistant Chief Counsel from Immigration and Customs Enforcement), and a judge (the Immigration Judge). Depending on the reason for deportation, the individual may be detained in custody throughout the proceedings or may have to post a bond in order to be released. And, of course, the end result of a removal case – the possibility of deportation from the United States – feels very much like a punishment.
Our deportation attorneys are familiar with the unique procedures and practices of Immigration Court. We are experienced litigators who have represented clients in Immigration Courts throughout the southeastern United States. Because immigration law is Federal and Immigration Courts are part of the Department of Justice, our deportation attorneys can represent clients in Immigration Courts anywhere in the nation.
Deportation Attorneys for Immigration Court Proceedings
Often times, there are different forms of relief available. Representation in Immigration Court is very important because every deportation defense should start with an in-depth analysis of available relief. Depending on the circumstances of the case, an Immigration Judge may have the authority to cancel a deportation and/or grant a person lawful permanent resident (LPR, or “green card”) status. Other times, an individual may be eligible for a visa, and the government may agree to continue or close the deportation proceedings while the individual applies for that visa. Our deportation attorneys will analyze your case and help you apply for any available relief.
