Deportation: Relief from Removal (Deportation).
Deportation proceedings may be initiated against unlawfully present person (undocumented immigrants) or against lawful permanent residents who committed certain crimes or other serious deportable offences.
Deportation begins with delivery of a Notice to Appear (NTA). If you received a Notice to Appear before the Immigration Judge, it means that you have been placed in removal (deportation) procedure and an Immigration Judge will decide your fate. Immigration Judge will issue an order of deportation unless some form of relief is available to you.
At this stage advice and representation by an attorney becomes vital to your future. Depending on the particular circumstances, several forms of relief may be available that would prevent deportation and would allow to remain in the United States. Certain forms of relief may provide a person with permanent residence (green card). Unfortunately, not every deportation case may proceed with an application of relief.
