If you have been placed in removal proceedings before the Immigration Court it is imperative that you consult with an immigration attorney as soon as possible. There are many issues to consider with respect to your Immigration Court case, including why you were placed in removal proceedings and what forms of relief you are eligible to apply for.
The purpose of removal proceedings is to determine whether you should be removed from the United States, or whether you should be allowed to remain in the country and, if so, in what status. The specific facts of your case will determine what forms of relief are available to you in Immigration Court, including how long you have lived in the United States, whether you have certain relatives who are U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents, whether you have a well-founded fear of being persecuted in your country of birth, and whether you have been convicted of certain crimes. Any applications for relief must be well researched, well prepared and well argued. Keep in mind that there will be an attorney for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, in court whose primary job will be to convince the Immigration Judge that you should be removed from the United States. As such, it is of the utmost importance that your attorney is competent and well versed in immigration law.
