Removal and Deportation Defense
Deportation is indeed a frightening situation for any immigrant in the U.S. In such a situation, you need someone who defends you every step of the way. And this is what we do best. At the Law Office of Kevork Adanas, P.C., we are devoted to defending people in removal proceedings.
We understand that time is of the essence during the removal/deportation case; thus, our immigration attorneys work vigorously with every client in need defending them against deportation.
Removal Proceeding—What is it?
Once a person is arrested and undergoes an investigation, a removal proceeding is scheduled to determine whether they will be deported. A Notice to Appear (NTA) is then sent to the immigrant from the ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The immigration judge presides over the removal proceeding. Before the final verdict is announced, arguments from both sides (the government agency seeking deportation and the immigrant's attorney) is heard by the judge.
It is essential to understand that unlike the proceedings in the criminal court where the sixth amendment protects the defendant's right to counsel, the government doesn't provide immigrants with legal representation at the immigration court, therefore, you need a lawyer to advocate on your behalf. Moreover, the court may not inform you of the deadlines until it is already too late. This is why it is advisable to contact us.
