What should I expect in a removal hearing?
You will need to appear in immigration court on the date specified in your NTA. Removal proceedings are administrative hearings, during which the immigration judge assigned to your case will determine whether you are removable (deportable) from the U.S. He or she will also determine whether you qualify for any relief that you have applied for, such as:
- Cancellation of removal
- Adjustment of status
Asylum, withholding of removal or protection under the Convention Against Torture
- U visa relief
- Waivers of removability and 212(c) relief
The U.S. government is always represented by a prosecutor from the Department of Homeland Security's Office of Chief Counsel. You have the right to be represented by a Broward County immigration lawyer who can protect your rights and ensure that you have the best chance of a successful outcome.
Can I appeal a negative decision?
A negative decision from an immigration judge ordering you removed from the U.S. can be immediately appealed to the Board of Immigration Appeals. In many cases, a negative decision from the Board of Immigration Appeals may be further challenged in the U.S. Courts of Appeals. However, many immigration attorneys do not have appellate experience. Broward County Immigration Attorney Andrea Montavon-McKillip has a wealth of appellate experience and can guide you effectively through the appellate process.
