Removal Defense

Maggio + Kattar has been representing clients in all stages of immigration litigation, administrative and federal, for over 25 years. Individuals who are in the United States without valid nonimmigrant status or who have been involved in activities which may jeopardize their immigration status can be placed in removal proceedings. This is the beginning of a process by which Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), part of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), attempts to remove an individual from the United States. Most individuals are allowed to challenge his or her removal before the Immigration Courts and before the Board of Immigration Appeals. Additionally, in some instances, federal courts have jurisdiction to review decisions taken by the Board of Immigration Appeals affirming a removal order.
