Navigating Complex Immigration Laws
Removal proceedings are the steps that are taken against an immigrant to remove them from the U.S. by providing a hearing before an Immigration Judge. There are many different reasons why a person could be facing removal. Regardless of the reason you may have been told for your own case, it is imperative that you hire an experienced immigration attorney to represent you. At the Law Offices of Elsa Martinez, PLC, we focus our firm solely on immigration matters and we are not afraid to fight for your right to remain in the U.S.
- A few examples of common reasons you could face removal include:
- Criminal conviction
- Immigration violations
- Ineligibility for residency
- Overstaying your visa
- Abandoning your status after an extended trip abroad
- Fraud or Misrepresentation to obtain an immigration benefit.
- Being present in the U.S. without status
Determining Your Removability
There are many steps that follow the initiation of removal proceedings after the issuance of a Notice to Appear in court. There are also many due process rights, like the right to counsel, to be present during the proceedings and to call witnesses. It is imperative that individuals regardless of their status, exercise their due process rights under the law.
If you are a legal permanent resident of the U.S. and the Department of Homeland Security has initiated proceedings against you, you risk the possibility of being deported and never returning to the U.S. You must act quickly before an inexperienced attorney waives these rights and you are separated from your loved ones permanently. Our top priority is to represent your right to stay here in the United States, taking on the investigation and research necessary to build a strong defense on your behalf.
