Deportation hearings today are known as removal hearings and begin with a notice to appear. The notice to appear is the document that sets out the allegations against you and an explanation as to why the United States government wishes to remove you from the United States. If you are facing this situation, you should contact a deportation defense attorney.
There are 4 types of hearings typically held in Immigration court those are as follows:
- Bond Hearings/Bond Redetermination
- Master Calendar Hearings
- Contested Master Hearings
- Individual/Merits Hearings.
If you are detained, Charlotte Deportation Defense Attorney David Concha can help you get a bond hearing/bond redetermination hearing to help free you from jail so that you can fight your case without being incarcerated. This is very similar to what happens in a criminal case. If you are out on bond or released on your own recognizance. Then you will have a master calendar hearing. During the master calendar hearing the Immigration Judge will ask you to respond to the allegations of the Notice to Appear and to specify what defenses if any you have to being removed from the country. This is where the Law Offices of David A. Concha, P.C. can help, given that we have appeared in Immigration courts all over the country.
Some times the Immigration judge wants the government attorney and a deportation defense attorney to fight or resolve an important point of law on your case, this is a contested Master Hearing. If the resolution of that Hearing is favorable then you may be allowed to go forward to an Individual or Merits Hearing.
The Individual or Merits hearing is the trial where the attorneys, the Respondent (you) and the attorney representing Immigration have a trial based on the defenses that you allege exist in your case. If successful, a merits hearing can result in Permanent Residence or your ability to remain in the United States under some status.
We have successfully, obtained Permanent Residence, Temporary Protected Status, VAWA, U Visa, Cancellation of Removal, and many forms of Immigration Relief.
