Removal "Deportation" Proceedings
Removal proceedings are formal court hearings and should not be taken lightly. Failure to appear will automatically result in an order of removal or "deportation." However, it is possible to apply for, and receive, protection and immigration benefits during the removal proceedings.
When dealing with immigration, there are no court-appointed attorneys. You have a right to legal representation, but it is your responsibility to locate and retain your own attorney. It is imperative that you secure a qualified and experienced immigration attorney because the Department of Homeland Security has become extremely aggressive in pursuing removal proceedings against immigrants of all kinds.
Detention and Deportation
If you or a loved one has been detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the first priority is to identify a way to avoid being deported. The primary reasons for detaining and deporting a person are the violation of immigration laws and criminal activity. Regardless of the reason, your case can be argued before the immigration court judge, who has the authority to grant protection from deportation.
Our Raleigh deportation defense lawyers will take the time to examine all of the details and explain your options, including the potential consequences and advantages. We will craft a strategy for your defense that directly addresses any concerns the judge may have, including those involving a criminal background. Our track record of success illustrates our ability to zealously defend your best interests before the immigration court or the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA).
Detention Facility Meetings
If you or a loved one has been detained by ICE, we encourage you to contact us immediately. When needed, our attorneys will schedule meetings in a detention facility. Whatever immigration problem you are dealing with, we are here to help.
