Understanding Removal Proceedings in the USA: Your Rights and Our Legal Support
Facing removal proceedings in the United States can be a daunting and uncertain experience for individuals. Removal, also known as deportation, refers to the legal process of determining whether an individual should be allowed to remain in the country or be ordered to leave. At QBM Legal, we understand the complexities of removal proceedings and are committed to providing steadfast legal representation to individuals facing deportation.
What are Removal Proceedings?
Removal proceedings are initiated when the US government seeks to deport an individual from the country due to alleged violations of immigration laws. The process involves a series of hearings before an Immigration Judge to determine whether the person should be allowed to stay in the US or be removed to their country of origin or another designated location.
The Removal Process:
Notice to Appear (NTA): The removal process typically begins with the issuance of a Notice to Appear (NTA) by the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The NTA contains the allegations and charges against the individual and details the date, time, and location of the first hearing before the Immigration Judge.
Master Calendar Hearing: At the initial hearing, the Immigration Judge will address the charges and set future hearing dates. During this hearing, the individual can respond to the charges and request relief from removal, such as asylum, cancellation of removal, or adjustment of status.
Individual Hearing: Subsequent hearings are held for the presentation of evidence and arguments regarding the individual's eligibility for relief. The Immigration Judge will consider the merits of the case and make a decision based on the evidence and applicable laws.
Final Order of Removal: If the Immigration Judge finds the individual ineligible for relief, a Final Order of Removal will be issued, ordering the person to leave the US. The individual may have the right to appeal the decision to the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) or pursue other legal remedies.
