Removal Hearing (Deportation)
An individual may be facing removal proceedings (deportation) if he or she has violated the immigration law in the United States. Removal proceedings start when the immigrant receives a notice to appear (NTA) from the Department of Homeland Security. The NTA will require the immigrant to appear in front of an immigration judge for a removal proceeding. In many cases an individual is drawn into removal proceedings because of a criminal action or contact with the authorities as insignificant as a traffic citation.
You need to know that you have the right to an attorney in this trial or removal proceeding. Because the consequence is serious, it is smart to have a knowledgeable and experienced attorney help you with this type of case. An attorney may be able to develop a strong defense for your deportation case to keep you in the United States.

There are a number of ways to address an immigration case that is not decided in your favor. An appeal is one way to request that the decision of the court be reviewed by a higher court. Immigration appeals are decided by the Board of Immigration Appeals. The Board will examine what happened at the trial court. You should know that there are specific and inflexible time limits on filing an appeal. Time is of the utmost importance in contacting a lawyer about filing an appeal.
