Do you know what it means to be placed in removal proceedings in immigration law? We're asking New York lawyer Cory Forman in this AskTheLawyers Quick Question.
Removal proceedings means that you've been designated as someone who is subject to deportation, whether you're here unlawfully, whether you were here lawfully and committed an immigration violation, most commonly a criminal violation. The government will put you in what's called a removal or commonly known as a deportation proceeding, where you go to court and then you have to contest your removability, either legally saying you're not removable or apply for a waiver if one applies to you.
