When the U.S. Government wants to deport an individual from the United States, they initiate "removal proceedings" with the Executive Office for Immigration Review (Immigration Court). Removal proceedings consists of attending hearings in court. Individuals will attend at least two hearings (one preliminary and one final), but oftentimes more than that.
There are many defenses to removal and Cecily has experience with a wide variety of cases. Removal proceedings are daunting and legal counsel is highly recommended. Unfortunately, there is no constitutional right to a lawyer in removal proceedings. As such, individuals faced with being deported must usually pay a private attorney to help them. This may seem impossible, but many attorneys provide payment plans and work with individuals to make representation affordable.
If you have a hearing in immigration court it is imperative that you contact an attorney for help. If you'd like to speak with Cecily about your immigration court case, do not hesitate to contact our office today.
