Removal Immigration Judge Removal Defense

If you or someone you love is facing removal or deportation from the United States, attorney Alen Takhsh knows that fear can arise with this new uncertainty. Mistakes in your visa application may have just come to light, or your Green Card may be long past its renewal period. Whatever the reason authorities may cite, Takhsh Law P.C. can provide legal assistance that can work toward allowing you to remain in the country.


Removal is the process by which a non-U.S. citizen—whether in the U.S. without documents or with a green card—is being deported from the United States. Below is an overview of the removal proceedings:

  • The removal proceedings begin when an individual is served with a Notice to Appear (NTA). It explains why Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) believes the recipient of the NTA is subject to removal from the United States. 
  • After the NTA has been served upon the respondent, they will receive a notice from the immigration court which provides details as to when and where the master calendar hearing (MCH) or initial hearing will take place. The hearing can take anywhere from a few months to a year after the NTA is received. If you have received this notice, be aware of the date and time of your hearing—if it is missed, you may lose your chance to fight against removal. An automatic order of removal may be issued and you will not be able to return to the U.S. for 10 years.
  • At the MCH, the immigration judge will schedule a merits hearing, which typically lasts for 2-3 hours. At this juncture, it is exceedingly important to have an experienced removal defense lawyer in Evanston by your side who can establish a strong strategy for your specific case.

Having an attorney who understands and handles the critical aspects of your case with care and relates to you as an individual can be a powerful weapon. Attorney Alen Takhsh understands the immigration process not just as a lawyer, but as someone who has personally experienced the trials and tribulations of the U.S. immigration journey. Attorney Takhsh wants to help people shouldering the struggles he once faced and can help if their residency status in the U.S. is threatened for any reason.

If you find yourself in removal proceedings, you may have several options:
  • Asylum: If you were persecuted or have a well-founded fear of future persecution in your country of origin, you may qualify for asylum.
  • Waiver of inadmissibility: This legal action is a request that the U.S. government forgive the reason for your inadmissibility, thus allowing you to receive a Green Card despite said reason.
  • Adjustment of status: If successful, this can pave the path toward you receiving a Green Card.
  • Motion to terminate: Your removal defense attorney in Evanston can file a motion to terminate your removal proceedings, challenging your Notice to Appear (rather than the factual allegations against you). This is particularly helpful if the government has a strong case supporting your removal from the U.S., such as prior criminal convictions.
  • Cancellation of removal: Those in removal proceedings who have resided in the U.S. for a long time and meet certain criteria can apply to stay and have the proceedings canceled.
  • Bond redetermination hearing: If you or someone you love is being kept in an immigration detention center, a judge may grant release on a bond under certain conditions and for the duration of your case.
