Louisville Immigration Court Lawyers
Removal of foreign nationals is occurring in the U.S. today at a higher rate than any time in our history. Anti-immigrant political sentiment is responsible for some of this, as well as being a side effect of the war on terrorism. Unfortunately, many good people are caught in the net and marked for deportation.
There is still hope, however. An experienced Kentucky immigration attorney like John Vickerstaff or Marina Finegold, can help you fight deportation in immigration court and help you remain in the U.S. We have successfully defended people in a variety of situations:
- Permanent residents convicted on criminal charges
- Undocumented aliens/illegal entry
- People who have overstayed their visit
Do Not Go To Court Without A Lawyer
Don’t let immigration officials talk you out of hiring a lawyer, saying it is not necessary. Of course they want their work to go forward without a fight. You have rights, even in immigration court. If you are before a judge without a lawyer, tell the judge that you want to hire a lawyer. Then call a Louisville immigration court lawyer at Vickerstaff Law Office, PSC.
In Louisville, the immigration court is an informal place, but the underlying process is very formal. It is very important that you play by the rules in an immigration court hearing. If you miss a scheduled hearing, deportation will be ordered even though you’re not there.
If you do not have a skilled attorney from the very beginning, or if you say the wrong thing because you do not have competent counsel at your side, your chances of success are limited.
Need To Appeal A Removal Order?
If you have already had a hearing, you may have the right to appeal the decision. Call us to talk about filing an appeal to the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA). It is a lengthy process, and not every case is eligible for appeal. But we have been successful in having bad decisions reversed by the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA).
