Cases heard by the Immigration Court

Virginia Immigration Appeals Lawyer

The Immigration Court in the United States is a component of the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) under the United States Department of Justice and hears mostly cases involving removal or deportation. It is overseen by the Office of the Chief Immigration Judge who is responsible for the administration of the immigration courts nationwide. The court adjudicates applications for relief from removal and removability. Their decisions are final unless appealed or certified to the Board of Immigration Appeals. If you have been served a notice requiring your presence before an immigration judge, you should absolutely be represented by an experienced and qualified Virginia immigration lawyer such as one of those at our firm, Fayad Law, PC.

Defenses to Deportation and Removal

The legal complexity and technicalities that are dealt with in removal and deportation cases can be overwhelming for those lawyers who do not practice immigration law on a day to day basis. The likelihood of prevailing in an immigration case before the immigration court is increased greatly when you hire a skilled immigration lawyer with a track record of success. Your case may involve such defenses as credible fear and reasonable fear determinations, asylum, protection under the Convention Against Torture, cancellation of removal, adjustment of status, and other waivers of inadmissibility.

A knowledgeable immigration attorney who is adept at crafting arguments and is versed in the law can afford you the peace of mind that you have made the right decision and given yourself every possible chance to overcome an order of removal or deportation.
