Removal Defense

What are removal proceedings?

Foreign nationals may be placed in removal (deportation) proceedings where they are required to appear before an immigration judge in their jurisdiction. These proceedings begin when the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) serves a Notice to Appear (NTA). The NTA sets forth DHS’s allegations against the foreign national and states the grounds of removability. Foreign nationals have the opportunity to appear before the immigration judge and request relief from removal from the United States.

There are several ways to avoid deportation depending on the circumstances of your case. The following defenses to removal are available to foreign nationals in removal proceedings:

  • Cancellation of Removal
  • In Court Adjustment of Status
  • Termination of Removal Proceedings and Requests for Prosecutorial Discretion
  • Asylum & Withholding of Removal, and Relief Under the Convention Against Torture
  • Waivers of Inadmissibility
