Immigration Court

The United States immigration process can be intimidating for people looking to live and work in the U.S. Working with an attorney during the immigration process can be extremely helpful.

I am attorney Gita B. Kapur, and I have significant experience working in local immigration courts in Los Angeles, Lancaster, San Francisco, Las Vegas, and other local immigration courts.

The Los Angeles Immigration Court is located at:

606 S. Olive Street
15th Floor

There is parking available at the courthouse.

Immigration Court FAQs

I have received a notice to appear. What should I do next?

A notice to appear is the first document you will receive once you are referred from United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). If you receive one, it means that you are in the United States illegally and that the government is seeking to deport you.

Talk to a lawyer if you have received a notice to appear. There may be several immigration options available that would allow you to remain in the United States.

Do I have to bring a lawyer to the first immigration hearing?

It is advisable to have a lawyer come to your first immigration hearing. In fact, the judge may recommend that you bring one, since immigration law matters are extremely complex.

When you get to the court house, let the immigration clerk know that you have arrived. When your name is called, you can tell the judge that you want to hire an attorney to represent you in the immigration proceedings. You can represent yourself, but the process is very complex and can take a long time.

What happens if I don't attend the immigration court hearing?

If you miss an immigration hearing, an immigration judge may issue a deportation order against you. If you missed the hearing due to a severe illness or death, you may be able to seek a motion to reopen the case, where you can work to remedy the situation with help from an immigration lawyer.

Can I get a free attorney to represent me in immigration proceedings?

No. There are no free attorneys in immigration matters. My law firm provides competitive prices and a free initial consultation where various immigration options can be explained.
