Did You Receive a Notice to Appear?
Orlando Deportation Defense Lawyers
If you have been criminally charged while residing as a temporary immigrant in the United States, then you will probably be issued a notice to appear in court before an immigration judge. If you are living in the country illegally or have surpassed your visa's allotted timeframe, then you may be served with this document, which is the initial stage of the removal process.
This document fully explains the reasons that you are no longer permitted to stay in the U.S., including record of any criminal offenses committed. The notice to appear also addresses defenses and waivers that can be established or requested.
A notice to appear is a written order issued by a law enforcement officer. The arresting officer is typically the individual who administers the document unless the accused refuses to be identified or sign the notice.
When this document is issued, it must contain the following:
- Name and address of the accused
- Date the offense was made
- Offense charges
- Counts of each offense
- Time and place to appear
- Name of the arresting officer
- Signature of the accused
A notice to appear is typically administered to those who have violated an immigration law and must face the consequences of a criminal charge. A notice to appear threatens the life you dreamed of in this country and, without effective assistance from a professional representative, you will face deportation and a possible bar from the United States.
