Master Calendar Certification

 

I certify that, in open court this date, I explained to the respondent, both in English and: _____ Spanish; ______ ___________________, the following legal requirements:

 

ADDRESS REPORTING REQUIREMENT

 

The respondent must keep this office informed of his or her correct mailing address and telephone number. All changes in address or phone number must be reported to this office within five (5) days of the change. The respondent was given two (blue) Forms EOIR-33/IC “Alien’s Change of Address Form/Immigration Court.”

 

CONSEQUENCES OF FAILURE TO APPEAR

 

The respondent was told that, if he or she does not appear on time for the next scheduled hearing, it is likely that an order of removal and deportation will be entered against him or her, and he or she will then become subject to immediate arrest and deportation from this country, without any further hearing before me or review of the case by a higher court. Furthermore, that he or she will lose for ten (10) years, all rights to apply for most forms of relief including voluntary departure, cancellation of removal, adjustment of status, change of status, and registry.

 

The respondent was informed that his or her failure to attend hearings will be excused only upon a showing of exceptional circumstances, and that includes the serious illness of the respondent or the death of the respondent’s parent, spouse, or child, but not including less compelling circumstances, beyond the control of the respondent.

 

The respondent was given an opportunity to indicate a lack of understanding of these advisements and to ask questions for clarification. The respondent indicated total understanding. A copy of this Certification was handed to the respondent.
