Deportation or removal is the process through which the government seeks to remove a non-citizen from the United States.

There are several reasons why an individual may face deportation, including:

  • Unlawful presence in the United States
  • Criminal conviction
  • Overstaying a visa
  • Failure to register or depart the country when required

If you are facing deportation, you may have the right to request relief from removal, which will allow you to stay in the United States. The process can be confusing, and it is important to have the legal guidance of a deportation attorney. Our team at the Law Office of Ayala & Acosta has the experience and knowledge to fight for your rights and protect you from deportation.

The Process of a Deportation Case

The process of a deportation case can be challenging. It is important to understand the steps that you will go through and to have the guidance of an experienced attorney.

The process includes:

  • Issuance of an NTA. The federal government initiates the process by issuing a Notice to Appear (NTA). The NTA explains why you are in deportation proceedings and include a list of facts and charges against you.
  • Notice of Hearing,. You will receive a notice of the place, date, and time of your immigration court hearing.
  • Master Calendar Hearings. The first hearing is called a Master Calendar Hearing. The Immigration Judge will conduct a preliminary assessment of the case and determine the next steps. The Immigration Judge may continue the case for preparation time, may issue orders and deadlines to submit documents, or may schedule the case for a final hearing.
  • Individual Hearing. If you have applied for relief or contested removability, the Immigration Judge will schedule your case for a final Individual Hearing. The Immigration Judge will consider evidence and make a decision about your ability to remain in the United States. 
  • Appeal.  If the Immigration Judge isses a decision you disagree with, you have the right to appeal the decision. Your appeal must be received at the Board of Immigration Appeals within 30 days of the date of the decision. While your appeal is pending, you will be able to remain in the United States.
