If you’ve been fighting to remain in the United States, then receiving an order of deportation can be devastating for you and your loved ones. However, a deportation order doesn’t mean that you will, in fact, get deported. There are various things you can do after receiving a deportation order to increase your chances of remaining in the United States. Our deportation defense attorneys explain what you can do after receiving a removal order.
First, Contact an Attorney Immediately
The moment you receive a deportation order, you should contact an immigration attorney to represent you. Your attorney can review the reasons why you are being deported, go over your options, and advise you on your next steps.
You will want to take action immediately so your attorney can begin gathering information and preparing for your court hearing, which could be within a few weeks from receiving the order. The more time your attorney has to prepare, the better it can be for your case.
What Are My Options to Challenge a Deportation Order?
Depending on your unique situation, you may have several options to fight the deportation order with the help of an experienced attorney
- Motion to Reopen: You might be able to request a Motion to Reopen by asking the immigration judge to review your case and deportation order. You can request the reopening of your case if circumstances have changed or if the court made a decision without your knowledge.
- File an Appeal: If you feel that the immigration judge in your case made an incorrect decision, you can appeal the judge’s decision to the Board of Immigration Appeals. You would have to appeal within 30 days from the date of the immigration judge’s deportation order, and you would need to prove that there was an incorrect conclusion of the facts and evidence presented. When you appeal directly from the immigration judge’s decision in your case, your deportation will be put on an automatic hold until the judge has made a decision.
