In immigration court, you do not have the right to an attorney as you would in criminal court. You only have the right to bring an attorney that you have hired, at no cost to the government. If you cannot afford an attorney and are unable to find a pro bono (volunteer) attorney to help you, you must represent yourself in court. Even if you do not have an attorney, if you are detained by immigration, ask to be seen by a judge.
