Removal Defense

Removal (also called deportation) is ordered when a foreign national breaks certain immigration laws. The Department of Homeland Security may issue a removal order for any of the following:

  • Entering the United States illegally
  • Certain types of criminal convictions
  • Overstaying a visa
  • Committing fraud on a visa application.

This is not an exhaustive list. Once an alien has been issued a removal order, he or she must attend a hearing at the local branch of the immigration court (Executive Office of Immigration Review). This hearing provides the alien with an opportunity to defend against the removal charges.

Attorney Megan Kludt is available for removal defense in the Boston and Hartford immigration courts. Call our office for more details or to set up an appointment.
