Removal Proceedings

If you either suspect that you will soon go through removal proceedings, or if they have already begun, then the most essential thing to do is to contact an immigration lawyer immediately. The longer you wait to begin working with an attorney, the lower your chances of a successful outcome will be.

If you or a loved one are going through removal proceedings in Florida, it is absolutely essential that you contact an experienced immigration attorney to take your case as soon as possible. These situations are time-sensitive and require an aggressive approach in order to maximize your chances of a successful outcome. US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, under the Department of Homeland Security, have begun to take a much more aggressive approach under the Trump administration in terms of removal proceedings and the pursuit of undocumented immigrants in the United States. While organizations like the ACLU have filed extensive lawsuits against the administration for a variety of issues that they perceive as violations to immigrants’ rights, there is no better short-term solution for your own situation than to partner with an attorney.

Contact us today for an initial consultation, and start building your case with an experienced immigration attorney in Florida as soon as possible in order to create a comprehensive defense and effective strategy. Our team takes immigration issues very seriously and will be proud to take your case.


Preparing For Removal Proceedings

Florida has seen an unprecedented spike in immigrant arrests, even those without prior criminal records. In fact, Florida has seen a 7x increase in arrests of undocumented immigrants since the end of the Obama administration, an increase that is far higher than most other areas in the United States. In the final year of Obama’s presidency, Florida (including Puerto Rico and the United States Virgin Islands) had 468 arrests of undocumented immigrants who did not have prior criminal records. In 2018, there were 3,224 arrests of undocumented immigrants without prior criminal records. As you can see, this is a growing problem and one that needs to be met with aggressive immigration defense cases with experienced attorneys.

If you either suspect that you will soon go through removal proceedings, or if they have already begun, then the most essential thing to do is to contact an immigration lawyer immediately. The longer you wait to begin working with an attorney, the lower your chances of a successful outcome will be. From there, your attorney will be able to guide you through the process step by step, ensuring that you are taking all of the right actions to help your case.


Attending Your Initial Hearing

After you get notice to appear for a deportation hearing, you will need to make plans to make your appearance. Simply having a hearing does not mean that you will be deported, but you must work with an immigration lawyer to make certain that you have all of the necessary information and documentation that will maximize your chances of a good outcome. At the initial hearing, the judge will make a determination about the next steps that they will take. If they are unable to find good reason to deport you, then they will not be able to proceed with removal. This is becoming an increasingly difficult case to make under the Executive Orders passed by the Trump Administration, but we will work as hard as possible to find a solution.

Contact Us As Soon As Possible
If you or a loved one have received a notice of deportation or removal, contact us immediately for an initial consultation. The sooner you begin to build your defense and your case for a deportation appeal, the more time you will have to maximize your chances of a positive outcome. There are a variety of different reasons that someone may face deportation, and therefore many different approaches towards the appeals process.
