What To Expect At Your Removal Hearing

Your removal hearing will happen before an immigration judge who will review the evidence
and listen to arguments from both sides. The Judge will also ask you about your immigration history, including how you entered the country and previous interactions with immigration authorities. You will also be asked about the reasons for your removal and any defenses you may have. Your attorney will prepare you for these questions and ensure you are presenting the best possible case. Your attorney will also present evidence in your favor including documentation of your ties to the community, employment history, and any personal or family circumstances that support your case. You may be granted the right to remain in the US if the Judge determines you are eligible for relief from removal. IF not, you may have the opportunity to appeal your decision or explore other legal options. You should also be really patient with this process because it can be long and patience is required.
