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.
