Konteh & Associates, PC

Often, non-U.S. citizens are placed in Removal Proceedings, a legal term referring to the legal process of removing or deporting the respondent from the United States due to various issues such as overstaying an approved visa, violations, criminal convictions, and other legal issues.

The Immigration Courts are presided by Immigration Judges (IJ’s) who hear all removal cases and make the ultimate decision whether to allow the respondent to remain in the U.S. legally, remove the respondent by order of deportation, or to grant the respondent a chance to depart voluntarily. Immigration Relief is a term referred to in the U.S. Immigration Courts that allows a non-U.S. citizen to remain in the United States.
