DEPORTATION DEFENSE

REMOVAL PROCEEDINGS

Once the government has found an individual “removable” for violating the United States Immigration Laws, they must appear before the Immigration Court for Master Calendar Hearings and Individual Hearings. 

RELIEF FROM REMOVAL

Based on the facts in a given case, relief can be sought for the following reasons:

 • Cancellation of Removal (EOIR-42A and EOIR 42B) 

• Relief under former section 212(c)

• Adjustment of Status

• Waivers of Inadmissibility (crimes, fraud/misrepresentation, and/or innocent ineligibility)

• Asylum, Withholding of Removal, Convention Against Torture

• Voluntary Departure in Lieu of Removal 

DEFERRED INSPECTION

Deferred inspection occurs when an immediate decision concerning the immigration status of an arriving traveler cannot be made at the port of entry due to a lack of documentation.

ORDER OF SUPERVISION

An order of supervision requires an individual to periodically report to ICE for status check, to obtain permission to travel, and update immigration officers informed of any changes in your immigration status. 

IMMIGRATION APPEALS

Appeals of any Removal order are filed with the U.S. Board of Immigration Appeals in Washington, D.C.
