Removal/Deportation Proceedings

HELP! I just RECEIVED a Notice To Appear (“NTA”) in Immigration Court, what does this mean? Will I be Deported?

If you receive a Notice to Appear, (“NTA”), before an Immigration Judge, it means that you have been placed into Removal Proceedings (formerly referred to as Deportation Proceedings). It does not mean that you are going to be removed from the U.S. immediately. Rather, it is your opportunity to prove to an Immigration Judge that you are entitled to some form of relief from removal. The type of relief that is available to you is complicated and requires a thorough review of your immigration history by an experienced immigration attorney. Below is an overview of the different kinds of relief from removal that the attorneys at The Shapiro Law Firm have successfully obtained for our clients. We have represented clients in Immigration Courts across the United States, including Immigration Courts in: New York, NY, Newark, NJ, Atlanta, GA, Hartford, CT, Orlando, FL, Boston, MA, Charlotte, NC, Cleveland, OH, Arlington, VA, Philadelphia, PA, Detroit, MI, and more. If you are in Removal Proceedings or are concerned that you will be placed in Removal Proceedings, CONTACT US TODAY BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE!

Deportation Document

What are Removal Proceedings & why is someone placed in them?

Formerly referred to as “deportation proceedings,” Removal Proceedings are carried on before an immigration judge, who decides whether or not an immigrant will be allowed to remain in the country. While, generally, a person cannot be expelled without first going through a removal hearing, someone arriving at the border, or other port of entry, can be forced to leave without a hearing or appearance before a judge. If an immigrant is found removable, she can be deported or forced to leave the United States.

  • The United States government can force a non-citizen to return to his or her home country for a number of reasons, including:

  • Committing fraud or misrepresenting a material fact in order to get a Visa, Green Card, etc.

  • Narcotics Conviction

  • Murder Conviction

  • Illegal Trafficking of Firearms

  • Money Laundering

  • Crime of Violence that carries at least a sentence of 5 years or more
