Deportation & Removal

One of the most frightening and confusing experiences that a non-citizen can face is the prospect of being detained and deported/removed from the United States by Immigration & Customs Enforcement. Non-citizens can be placed in “removal proceedings” before the Immigration Court for a variety of reasons:

– Overstaying a visa

– Marriage fraud

– Noncompliance with the terms of a visa (eg. working without authorization)

– Entering the U.S. without inspection (without a visa)

– An arrest, charge, or conviction of a crime

– Providing false information or documentation in an immigration application

Experienced attorneys at Celedon Law can help

Removal proceedings are initiated by the issuance of a Notice to Appear (NTA), which outlines the reasons why the government believes that the individual should be removed from the U.S. While it can be disheartening to receive a Notice to Appear in immigration court for removal proceedings, know that removal is not imminent, the process may take months or years, and you may be entitled to a defense. Celedon Law attorneys have helped countless individuals successfully fight removal proceedings and retain their ability to live in this country, often permanently. Although you can be represented by an attorney, the government will not pay for or provide an attorney to you.
