Our Los Angeles deportation attorney has the knowledge and experience with immigration law you need on your side. We regularly represent immigrants before Immigration Courts, fighting for their right to stay in the country.
Removal proceedings start when you receive a Notice to Appear (NTA). This document explains the legal reasons why ICE believes you (the “respondent”) entered the U.S. illegally or why they believe your presence in the U.S. is unauthorized.
Within 1 - 4 weeks of receiving the notice, you will then receive a notice from the immigration court. Here, you will find instructions about your master calendar hearing (MCH) will be. This is also referred to as the initial hearing and usually lasts about 15 minutes. It may take place from a few months to a year after you receive the NTA.
Make note of the date and time of your MCH. Do not miss it. If you do, an automatic order of removal may be issued against you, and you may not be able to return to the U.S. with any type of visa for 10 years.
After the MCH, the immigration court will schedule an individual hearing (merit hearing). These usually last four hours or more. For these types of hearings, it is important to have an experienced immigration lawyer by your side to defend you.
