If you’ve been living and working in Pennsylvania as an undocumented immigrant, you are definitely not the only one to do so. Most immigrants without proper legal papers live in fear that their lives may be turned upside down at any given moment if immigration officials threaten them with deportation. If you’ve received a notice to appear (NTA) you may be feeling confused and afraid about possibly being taken away from your family and sent back to your country of origin.

Once you have been served with an NTA, the removal process has already begun. However, you do not have to go it alone at your hearing. You have every right to have an attorney act on your behalf. In certain circumstances, an attorney can file an appeal regarding an Immigration Court’s rulings.

The options that are available in one situation may not be best suited to another. This is another reason why it’s best to seek counsel through an experienced immigration and naturalization law attorney. This way, you can be assured that the most viable option possible will be put into action to help you avoid removal.

The Mattes & Mahon, PC, in Pennsylvania, is fully equipped and committed to helping you overcome your deportation problems as well as any other legal status obstacles you may be facing at this time. An NTA does not necessarily mean things won’t go in your favor. The chances of success may be increased if you allow an attorney well-versed in U.S. immigration law to act on your behalf in court.
