What Is The Deportation Process Like?

  1. Notice to Appear (NTA): The deportation process kicks off with the issuance of a formal document provided by the Department of Homeland Security called a Notice to Appear. It details the grounds for your potential removal and mandates your appearance before an immigration judge.
  2. Master Calendar Hearing: During this preliminary hearing, you will have the chance to address the allegations and present your initial defense. Having one of our expert deportation defense attorneys by your side is crucial at this stage to advocate on your behalf and provide strategic guidance on how to proceed.
  3. Individual Hearing: Should your case advance, it will proceed to an individual hearing. Here, both parties will present evidence and witness testimonies. Our removal defense lawyer will meticulously craft a strong defense strategy, which may involve filing applications for relief like asylum, cancellation of removal, or adjustment of status.
  4. Decision: Once both sides have been thoroughly heard, the immigration judge will render a decision. If the ruling is not in your favor, you have the right to appeal to the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA). Our seasoned removal defense attorneys will be there to navigate you through the intricate appeals process, ensuring all possible avenues are explored.
  5. Potential Appeals: If the BIA upholds the deportation order, further appeals can be made to the federal courts. Each stage involves strict deadlines and procedural requirements, making legal representation crucial.
  6. Removal: If all appeals are exhausted and the deportation order is upheld, you will be scheduled for removal from the U.S. at a specified date.
