Hearings by Telephone in Newark Immigration Court During COVID-19 Pandemic

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and in the interest of public health and safety, the Newark Immigration Court issued new orders that govern its procedure regarding telephonic appearances for master and merits hearings. As of the date of this post, orders issued by the Newark Assistant Chief Immigration Judge state the following:

  • All master calendar hearings for represented respondents will be conducted telephonically and the Newark Immigration Court hereby waives the presence of all represented respondents for master hearings. This means that when master hearings resume, AKLAW clients with scheduled master hearings in Newark Immigration Court can rely on their attorney to represent them and need not appear neither in court nor by telephone.

  • For merits hearings, the individual Immigration Judge may conduct a telephonic merits hearing with the Respondent's informed consent.

However, an Immigration Judge may, in his or her discretion, halt any telephonic hearing, and the parties may be required to attend a future in-person hearing on a date to be determined.


For details, see the June 19, 2020 Standing Order Regarding Telephonic Appearances For Master And Merits Hearing.
