What is Immigration Court?
There are a number of independent court systems in the United States. The federal government and every state operate their own courts. However, many people are unaware that there are also courts dedicated to specialized topics. Immigration Court is one of these court systems.
The Immigration Court is an administrative court run by the U.S. Department of Justice. There are more than 200 Immigration Judges in 50 Immigration Courts nationwide.
Immigration judges have the authority to grant foreign nationals legal status in the United States. At the same time, these judges have the authority to order foreign nationals to be deported, or removed, from the United States.
If you had to be in court on a criminal or civil matter, you would of course hire a lawyer to represent you. Similarly, it is just as important to hire an attorney before your hearing in Immigration Court. The U.S. government will be represented by a lawyer during your hearing, and it is essential that you have a qualified immigration attorney to represent your interests.
