The removal, or deportation process is a serious and very complicated legal process. Therefore, it is essential that you hire a immigration lawyer as early as possible if you are facing deportation. Even if formal deportation or removal proceedings have not begun, visa violations, criminal violations and expired visas all require the attention of an immigration attorney experienced in the area of immigration and naturalization law to preempt removal or deportation proceedings.

Immigration Litigation | Removal Process
The Deportation proceeding typically commences with the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issuing a document entitled “Notice to Appear” (NTA) and serving the document on the person who is subject to the deportation proceeding. The NTA is to notify the non U.S. citizen to appear before an administrative judge to explain the legal reason why they are entitled to remain in the U.S. One of the common reasons for ICE to issue an NTA is if they believe that the non U.S. citizen has committed crimes of “moral turpitude,” aggravated felonies, assault, or other aggravated crimes, or if they overstay their visa limitation.
Both foreign nationals and green card holders may be subject to the issuance of an NTA and may be subject to deportation. It is critical that you consult an immigration attorney before you enter any plea bargain agreement, because you may compromise important rights that you may not be aware of. Our attorneys can help you deal with these legal issues, but you must act quickly to ensure that you have all the protections available to you
Even after you have received a “Notice to Appear” (NTA), relief may be available, such as adjustment of status, waivers, suspension of deportation, cancellation of removal, asylum, withholding of removal, or withholding of removal based on the Convention Against Torture (CAT).
