Florida DeportationDeportation Attorney

Deportation and removal proceedings can be daunting to foreign nationals who wish to reside in the U.S. Whether you are facing removal proceedings for criminal or non-criminal reasons, you will need the help of an experienced immigration law attorney who understands immigration court procedures and can help you remain in the U.S.

Removal proceedings typically begin when government officials deem an alien inadmissible to the U.S. The most common reasons for the authorities to find an alien inadmissible are:

  • You have entered the U. S. without inspection
  • You have committed a criminal act
  • You have "overstayed" a student or work-related non-immigrant visa
  • You have misrepresented yourself on a non-immigrant or permanent resident application
  • You have become a public charge within five years of entering the U.S.

At The Law Offices of Rubin & Bickman, we will explain to you what forms of relief of deportation are available in your case. No matter how complicated your situation, we have more than 35 years of combined experience and will work diligently to assist you.

How Do Removal Proceedings Work?
Removal proceedings start when a Notice to Appear (NTA) is served to the alien. The NTA provides the reasons for removal. As soon as the alien receives an NTA, it is recommended that alien retains an immigration attorney to represent him in the removal proceedings.

Typically, removal proceedings consist of two hearings: a master calendar hearing and an individual hearing. At the master calendar hearing, the immigration judge inquires if the alien is planning to pursue any form of the relief from removal and schedules an individual hearing. At the individual hearing, the immigration judge makes a decision on the case.

Types of Relief From Deportation
Various forms of the relief are available. They include, but are not limited to: adjustment of status, waiver, cancellation or withholding of removal, stay of removal, deferred action or voluntary departure.
