Experienced Salt Lake City Deportation Defense Attorney
Hundreds of thousands of persons are currently in deportation (removal) proceedings before an Immigration Judge. Depending on where you reside, removal proceedings may take many years or can be over very quickly and with life changing negative results including being taken into custody at the hearing by ICE and deported to your country. If an Immigration Judge denies your case, you have 30 days to appeal the decision to the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA). If the BIA denies your appeal, you may be able to challenge this denial in the U.S. Federal Court of Appeals having jurisdiction over your case. Having an attorney represent you in court increases your chances of success considerably over representing yourself, although you are free to do so.
