You have the Right to a Deportation Lawyer

The Department of Homeland Security generally cannot deport you until you are first given a chance to go before an Immigration Judge to present your case in what is now called removal proceedings.  At all removal or deportation hearings in Immigration Court, you have a right to be represented by a deportation attorney.

Having an aggressive and experienced immigration lawyer by your side can help increase your chances of avoiding deportation.  If you have to appear in Louisiana Immigration Court, Attorney Rusty Messer & Associates is ready to help you fight your deportation case.  

How Does a Deportation Case Start?

The deportation process often begins when you receive a letter called a “Notice to Appear,” which requires you to appear in Immigration Court at a deportation hearing.  This can happen to people inside an immigration detention center or to other people who have an encounter with ICE.  A Notice to Appear is something you should not ignore, and you should not attempt to handle on you own.  The experienced Louisiana deportation lawyers at Rusty Messer & Associates have the immigration law knowledge and courtroom trial skills to help you fight your deportation.

If the Department of Homeland Security, DHS, is trying to deport you, it is probably for one of the follow reasons:

  • You entered the U.S. legally with a visa but overstayed and are now out of status
  • You entered the U.S. without a visa or without being inspected by an immigration officer, i.e., EWI
  • You have a green card, i.e., permanent residency status, but have a criminal conviction or have had some trouble with the law
  • You have a green card, i.e., permanent residency status, but have a criminal conviction or have had some trouble with the law
  • You filed an immigration application with USCIS, which got denied (for example, Asylum (I-589), Haitian Refugee Immigration Fairness Act of 1998 (HRIFA), Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act (NACARA), or an Application to Register Permanent Residence or to Adjust Status (I-485)
