What To Do If You Have Received A Notice To Appear

There are certain rules and regulations an individual must adhere to when he or she obtains an immigrant or non-immigrant visa. Any violations of these rules could lead to deportation or removal from the United States. Individuals who overextend the time period authorized on their visa application, who violate the terms of their visa, or who engage in unlawful activities are putting themselves at risk for deportation or removal. If you have received a notice to appear you need to take immediate measures to protect your rights. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Office (ICE) will send out a notice to appear as the first step in the removal process. The notice to appear will advise you of a hearing at which you must attend and during which the future of your immigration status will be determined. The notice to appear will also clearly lay out the allegations and charges which have been made against you.

We advise that you contact our firm and you secure legal representation from a North Carolina immigration lawyer immediately following the receipt of a notice to appear. Doing so will greatly improve your chances of being able to have a powerful deportation defense with the goal of helping you to ultimately avoid deportation. Do not attempt to act on your own. Having an aggressive and highly-skilled immigration lawyer at your side during removal proceedings is essential to your defense strategy. Failure to respond to a notice to appear will only lead to further problems as the removal process will go on unchallenged and your removal or deportation will be almost certainly guaranteed.
