My ex is here on a green card that is due to be renewed this year; at the same time, he is for a hearing to deport him, due to 2 DVAs, stalking, violation of a restraining order, against me. I am having trouble getting the prosecuting atty. to keep me updated on the status of this man- I regard him as very dangerous, he has threatned my life, tho' not lately- but I need to know his status, would also like to give my input, I feel I should be kept informed of his status....how do I do this , who can I complain to if this lawyer continues to blow me off? As A citizin, do I not have the right to be heard, the right to question? especially when my safety is involved?

Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. There may be a slight delay between your follow ups and my replies as I am typing out my answer. Please remember that this is general information only, not legal advice, and no attorney-client relationship is formed.I am very sorry for your situation. Please tell me:-what are you trying to achieve here - to get him kicked out of the country?-have you sent a letter to USCIS yet?-has he made bail with his latest charges?This not an answer, but an Information Request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. I look forward to helping you.
1- I would feel safer if he was gone- he has made numerous threats to kill me, has stalked me. Is an ex- sniper with the special; forces of british army- I have had myprotection order extened x2, which I am told is rare in Maine- I am telling you this so you can see I am not being vindictive.
2- I would write if I had an address.
3- he has served 3 months in jail, is out on bail with the ICE people, as he wanted a hearing.This was 4 years ago, he keeps getting his hearing delayed.....
Hello,Thank you for your reply. Do not worry, I do not think that you are. 1. If he is out on bail with ICE, then that means that he is in removal proceedings already. That is good for your case.2. "I would write if I had an address." Well, since he is in ICE proceedings, you can contact the attorney prosecutor in charge of the case and offer your Testimony. How do you find this individual? Find your court here:http://www.justice.gov/eoir/sibpages/ICadr.htm...and then call the court and ask for the prosecutor's contact information. It is that simple. Also, the prosecutor may update you as to the status per your request.3. Since EOIR Court is administrative and not part of the judicial branch, you have no "right" to sit into the matter, but again, the prosecutor may keep you updated and also may use you as a witness. However, you have no right to force anything to happen in EOIR Court, I am afraid.I hope this finds you well. Please rate my answer when we are finished, or reply to keep the conversation going. Please rate my answer positively when we are finished – I do not get credit for my time with you unless you do. I work very hard to formulate an informative answer for you; please reciprocate my good faith. You may always come back to this thread for follow ups on this topic free of charge after rating the answer.
