REPRESENTATION IN REMOVAL PROCEEDINGS

 

An alien present in the United States without status, or in certain circumstance, even a Legal Permanent Resident, may be placed in removal proceedings before an Immigration Judge for various reasons. This may include following an arrest, during a raid at their home or place of work or while attempting to enter or re-enter the United States among others. When a person is placed in removal proceedings the intention of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is to deport them from the United States. However, being placed in removal proceedings does not necessarily mean the end of the road. Depending on the individual’s circumstances there may be options to defend oneself. When one is placed in removal proceedings, it is important to obtain legal counsel promptly in order to avoid losing the right to apply for relief.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

What are my options?
The options for someone placed in removal proceedings vary. It truly depends on each individual case. Asylum, Cancellation of Removal and Adjustment of Status are just examples of possible options one may have. In some instances, Voluntary Departure may be the best option the individual has.

 

How long will my case take? 
The time a case may take to complete also varies extensively. It depends on various factors such as the type of relief one is applying for and even the jurisdiction that is handling the case. However, given the current backlogs in the Immigration Court one should plan to be in proceedings for some time.

 

Will I be able to get a work authorization?
Although a case may be pending in proceedings for some time one may be able to obtain a work authorization while they are waiting. This depends on the type of case and various factors. An experienced Immigration Attorney should be able to guide the person through the process and assist with obtaining a work authorization if they are eligible.
