Five Things To Do For Your Hearing

If you are facing a deportation hearing, working with an experienced attorney at Ryan & Grinde will provide you with a guide who already knows how to navigate the many hidden pitfalls of the deportation hearing process. However, there are steps you can take to prepare yourself even before you ever see an attorney.

  1. Make a commitment to appear at your hearing. Do not avoid the hearing. If you avoid the hearing, you will most likely be ordered deported.
  2. Understand that the government is there to prove that you are not legally allowed to remain in the United States. For this reason, it is all the more important to appear at the hearing with a knowledgeable attorney. You want to establish facts in your case that are in your favor so that you may remain in the United States.
  3. Expect the government to have its own attorney. This is yet another reason why you want to have your own attorney, too. The government's attorney, keep in mind, is there to represent the government in their case against you, not to help you.
  4. Realize that, even if you lose, you still have the right to appeal your case. Again, an experienced attorney can help you prepare your appeal even if they have not worked with you during the hearing.
  5. Gather documents that will help you prove your defense. Depending on your case, these documents can include any visa documentation, ties to the United States, tax information, or criminal history.
