U.S. ICE may initiate removal (deportation) proceedings by filing a Notice to Appear with the U.S. immigration court and serving it to you.
If you were placed into proceedings, there will be a record available by phone at 1-800-898-7180. However, this is an automated line, and you must have your nine-digit alien identification number in order to obtain any information.
It is also possible to request your records from the courts through the Freedom of Information Act or, if the case is currently in court, you can request to review the record there. All of these steps can be taken by your attorney as well, and are standard practices within our office.
