Have you or your loved one received a Notice to Appear (NTA) from USCIS, ICE or DHS?
Under Immigration law, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has the authority to issue Form I-862, Notice to Appear (NTA) so they can begin removal proceedings.
NTAs are issued for Master Calendar hearings and is the first hearing in a removal proceeding in front of an Immigration Judge. During the master calendar hearing, the IJ has the authority to make substantive decisions about your case, including ordering a person’s removal or denying an application for immigration relief.
