Removal defense involves representing and advocating for immigrants facing deportation from the United States. For many immigrants facing removal from the United States, the process involves appearing before an immigration judge in immigration court. Legal representation is the single most important factor in determining whether someone will win or lose their case. Deportation orders issued in U.S. immigration proceedings have severe consequences. The first deportation or removal order issued by an Immigration Judge requires that you remain outside of the U.S. for a ten year period in most circumstances before you can benefit from even a green card through family sponsorship. More than one removal order can result in 20 years outside of the U.S. That is why it is so crucial to have a competent removal defense attorney to put your best defense when you are first charged with inadmissability or deportability and are placed in removal proceedings.
There are special forms of relief only available in removal proceedings that you may qualify for. However, each has unique requirements and different circuit courts, depending on where you liv and may have different interpretations on whether you meet those eligibility requirements.
You need the help of experienced immigration counsel who can help guide you through the removal proceedings process, prepare your best defense, work with you to help you challenge prior orders and reopen old removal proceedings with or without the cooperation of ICE.
