Removal proceedings are a legal process whereby the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security formally presents a charge of deportability against an non-U.S. citizen before the Immigration Court. Removal proceedings represent a time of great stress and uncertainty to an immigrant and his or her family. And yet there are forms of relief from removal, as well as various special waivers, available from the Immigration Court for certain qualified applicants.
Benson & Benson can quickly evaluate the case of any person in removal proceedings to determine if he or she is eligible to seek release from detention, and which forms of relief from removal, if any, he or she may be eligible to seek. In addition, by working closely with clients and their families, Benson & Benson can help maximize the chance of a favorable outcome in these critically important immigration tribunals.
If you or a member of your family is facing deportation, call Benson & Benson for a consultation, and let us help you in your fight.
