The Removal Process

For many immigrants, the deportation (or "removal") process can be scary. If the procedure ends badly, the non-citizen will be forced to leave the United States along with all of the business and personal relationships he may have formed there. Like all other aspects of the immigration system, removal from the U.S. involves a complex set of rules and procedures. These rules may make the procedure harder to understand, but it also means that the non-resident has a chance to defend himself. This section describes the removal process and contains information on obtaining relief from removal and delaying removal proceedings.
