Our office represents immigrants in Immigration Court. We defend against charges and present relief applications to the Court including, asylum applications, adjustment of status, and cancellation of removal.
If you have received a Notice to Appear from the Department of Homeland Security, removal proceedings have been initiated against you. Removal proceedings, sometimes called deportation proceedings, take place in Immigration Courts. The Immigration Court that has jurisdiction over most of Missouri and Kansas is in Kansas City, Missouri.
It is important to contact an immigration attorney soon after receiving a Notice to Appear. Our firm has experience challenging the charges in the notice. In the best of cases, the proceedings can be dismissed, and in other instances, you may be eligible for relief from removal.
Relief from removal is what the Immigration Court refers to as applications presented in the Court that, if approved, can provide an immigration benefit. If eligible, you may be able to become a permanent resident, also known as receiving a green card, or receive work authorization. The forms of relief from removal include asylum, adjustment of status, cancellation of removal, and others. Also, if an immigrant in Immigration Court applies for and receives a grant of deferred action under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, she may be able to have her proceedings closed. Our firm has experience with presenting these various forms of relief to the Immigration Court. We can help analyze your case, apply for relief, and defend against wrongful charges.
