Deportation Hearings - What You Need to Know

If you are served with a Notice to Appear in Removal Proceedings, you have the right to a formal hearing to plead your case. You also have the right to seek legal counsel, although the court will not appoint you free legal counsel like that provided to criminal defendants. Thus, it is important to do research and obtain experienced and trusted representation by immigration attorneys who will diligently uphold your rights. Our law firm is backed by more than 20 years of experience, and we have guided numerous clients to successful outcomes.

One important fact to note is that, if you choose to skip your deportation hearing, you will be automatically deported. Thus, it is necessary to show up to your deportation hearing and to not ignore the Notice to Appear summons. During the hearing, the court will provide an interpreter for you if necessary, as well as for anyone else who testifies.

At the hearing, you have the right to present your argument for why you need to stay in the U.S., and you can have witnesses testify on your behalf. You may also use evidence such as sworn statements, expert witness statements, and photographs or documentation to support your case. Immigration laws and statutes are very complicated. Thus, having a knowledgeable immigration lawyer on your side can help you understand your options for remaining in the U.S.
