RSST Law Group provides a variety of services for individuals facing deportation through removal proceedings. Removal proceedings are administrative court proceedings in which individuals are charged with being removable from or inadmissible to the United States. Removal may only be ordered by an immigration judge, except in the case of expedited removal which occurs at a Port of Entry. Individuals may be placed in removal proceedings by designated officials of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) or U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). After an individual has received a final order of removal, ICE will detain and remove the individual.
Non-permanent residents may be placed in removal proceedings for violations of U.S. immigration laws, including, but not limited to: overstaying a period of authorized stay, violations of lawful nonimmigrant status, entry into the United States without inspection, or being in the United States without being admitted or paroled.
Permanent Residents may also be placed in removal proceedings for violations of U.S. immigration laws, including, but not limited to: abandonment of permanent residence, conviction of certain crimes, illegal voting in the United States, or termination of conditional resident status.
During the course of removal proceedings, individuals may contest that they are removable or inadmissible or may apply for relief from removal, if qualified.
RSST Law Group represents individuals placed in removal proceedings who are contesting removability or inadmissibility or who are applying for various forms of relief for which the individual may be eligible, including cancellation of removal, adjustment of status, asylum, waivers, and applications under the Haitian Refugee Immigration Fairness Act (HRIFA), Nicaraguan Adjustment & Central American Relief Act (NACARA), and Violence Against Women Act (VAWA).
