If you have received notice that you are required to appear for an immigration court hearing, you should consult with an immigration attorney who can help you prepare for the proceeding. It is crucial that you handle all dealings with the immigration court correctly the first time in order to protect your legal rights and any petitions you may make to stay in the country legally.
The responses you give in immigration court can affect your immigration status.

Immigration Court: Master Calendar
At the Master Calendar, the Immigration Judge reviews the Notice to Appear — the document that lists the charges against the immigrant and the provisions of law that make the immigrant removable. If the applicant is eligible to apply for relief in court, the Immigration Judge sets a deadline for the application, supporting documents and a date to present the full case.
Immigration Court: Individual Hearing
At the individual hearing, the full case is presented. We will brainstorm together the best strategy to construct a strong case in your favor. This may include your testimony, presenting evidence, witnesses and anything else that may be appropriate. The government will cross-examine your testimony and present their own witnesses and evidence. The judge will then issue a decision.
It is critical to appear on time for your scheduled hearing or the judge can order you removed in your absence.
