Receiving a Notice to Appear before an Immigration Court is very serious. First of all, it is vitally important to attend all court hearings. If you do not attend, then you could receive an Order of Removal from the United States for not being present. Nevertheless, it is not enough to just show up to court. One must take these issues very seriously or you could be forced to leave your home, job and children in America behind. It is important for you to know your rights and to aggressively defend those rights. There are a number of grounds for inadmissibility and/or removal of a noncitizen, including, but not limited to:
• Conviction of a felony, including domestic violence, aggravated DUI, drug charges or theft
• Fraudulent marriage to a U.S. citizen in order to gain a coveted green card
• Making terroristic threats
• Voting in any election in the United States or representing yourself as a U.S. citizen
• Not being in possession of a valid visa or entering the country without inspection.
We have helped many noncitizens legalize their status in order to remain in the United States. Problems arise in several different circumstances for noncitizens, including denials of citizenship applications; traffic citations and arrests for driving with a suspended license or for having no driver’s license.
You may be eligible for various defenses to removal including asylum, cancellation of removal, voluntary departure, AOS or waivers. It is important for you to discuss your case with an immigration attorney so that they may be able to provide you with a plan of action and advise you on the options that you have to proceed.
