Immigration: The deportation process

Deportation is a serious concern among immigrants in the United States. Deportation, which is also known as removal, is when the United States government formally removes a person from the United States. This only occurs when an immigrant has violated immigration or criminal laws.

It's vital to know that once a person is deported, he or she may lose the right to return to the United States in the future. In some cases, the delay is several years before the individual may apply to return.

This is why it's a good idea to fight deportation. If there is a way to help you stay in the country, your attorney will help you find it and do so.

Who can be deported?

Many people can be deported, including those who are inadmissible according to immigration laws, those who have entered the country illegally and those who engage in unlawful voting. Those who falsify documents to enter the United States or help any other immigrant to enter the country illegally may also be deported. These are just a few of the many situations in which an immigrant could be deported.

How does the removal process work?

The removal process is fairly simple. First, you'll be issued a Notice to Appear (NTA). Then, you will have hearing scheduled. That's when you will be asked if you need an attorney or if you are ready to proceed with the case. Next, you'll have to verify the NTA. If the judge decides you can be deported, you may have the option to apply for a form of relief from deportation, which your attorney can assist you with.
