When your case comes before an Immigration Judge, the government is charging you with being deportable from the United States. The government will be represented at your hearing by a Trial Attorney who probably has appeared in hundreds, if not thousands, of removal proceedings. It is important that you are represented by the best immigration attorney that you can find.
In this video, Carl Shusterman, a former INS Trial Attorney (1976-82) whose law firm has assisted hundreds of persons across the U.S. in winning their deportation cases, explains your rights in a removal proceeding.
Are you eligible for relief from removal? You may be able to apply for adjustment for status, for asylum, for cancellation of removal or for registry. It may be that the government cannot prove that you are deportable from the United States.
We hope that our video answers many of your questions about the process.
