Facing Removal Proceedings? Use our Experienced Removal Defense Lawyers.

People make the journey to the United States for all kinds of reasons and under all kinds of circumstances, but immigrants who lack lawful status (and even some lawful permanent residents who are convicted of certain crimes) can be subject to removal proceedings that lead to sudden deportations.

When you go before an immigration judge here in Houston, Texas, for a removal proceeding, you need the most knowledgeable attorney you can find by your side. At Naimeh Salem & Associates PLLC, our attorneys understand what is at stake – for you and your family. Several of our attorneys and their families have been through immigration journeys of their own, so we take every case personally.

What Causes A Removal Proceeding To Get Started?

A removal proceeding may start with a Notice to Appear (NTA) that tells you that you are deportable and orders you to attend a hearing, or you may be detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for some reason. In general, removal proceedings can start because:

  • You are arrested for a minor crime or even detained by the police for a traffic violation
  • You have overstayed a temporary visa for work, school or tourism
  • You are reported as an undocumented immigrant by a neighbor or employer
  • You are swept up in a raid at your place of work or somewhere else

In short, it doesn’t take much to end up in this situation, even if you have been quietly living in the United States for years. However, numerous legal remedies may work for your situation, including cancellation of removal, asylum, adjustment of status and voluntary departure. An experienced immigration lawyer can help you understand your options.
