What is a Notice To Appear?

If you receive a “Notice to Appear” (NTA) in the United States, it generally means that you are being placed in removal proceedings which could lead to deportation. It’s essential to take this situation seriously and we recommend you consult with an expert immigration attorney to navigate the situation as soon as possible.

Carefully read the NTA to understand the immigration reasons for your removal proceedings, the charges against you, and the date and location of your immigration court hearing. Every immigration court case is unique, and an experienced attorney can provide you with the best guidance for your case.

The following are tips to remember if you receive an NTA:

  • If there is something you do not understand in the NTA, your immigration attorney will be able to explain the situation to you and explain the legal basis for removal proceedings.
  • Your deportation defense attorney will help you understand your options and rights, including the right to remain silent, the right to legal representation, and the right to present evidence in your favor.
  • You must attend all immigration court hearings as scheduled, including the first hearing included in your NTA. Failing to appear at your hearings can result in deportation.
  • Share all relevant information with your attorney. Open and honest communication is crucial for building a strong defense.
  • Your attorney can advise you on potential forms of relief from removal.

Deportation defense process can be complex and exhausting, but your immigration attorney can help you gather the evidence that may help your case, such as documentation to support your eligibility for relief from removal. Finding the best deportation defense representation is essential for removal proceedings if you receive an NTA.
