It is sad, but true, that many immigrants living in California feel alone in their fight to remain in the country. Immigration issues are often challenging to tackle, and the laws surrounding these issues can be extremely confusing. Immigrants are entitled to seek legal assistance at any point during their immigration proceedings. This includes during deportation hearings and the appeals process.
Deportation and removal proceedings are hard on anybody, whether they are living in the country alone or run the risk of being separated from their family members. During a removal hearing, immigrants are required to stand before a judge and plead their case. An attorney can help these individuals by bringing experience and knowledge of current immigration policies to the court room and by providing a strong defense on behalf of these individuals.
The appeals process is very specific and deserves proper attention to detail. The smallest error could result in an application for appeal being thrown out. Applications for appeal, and all necessary documentation, must be submitted within a specified time frame. Again, failure to submit all necessary documents in that time frame will likely result in a request for appeal being dismissed.
Those in California who are working through the immigration process need to know that they are not alone. Assistance is available at every stage, and taking advantage of that assistance may help in moving the process along as quickly and smoothly as possible. As every situation is unique, having strong representation that knows and understands the specific details of your situation can prove to be a valuable commodity during this trying time — especially for those facing deportation hearings and appeals.
