Ways to Avoid Deportation

Receiving a Notice to Appear at a removal hearing is frightening. This document sets a date where you must go before the Immigration Court because you are a non-citizen being accused of entering the United States unlawfully, remaining in the country after your authorization has expired or committing an act that disqualifies you from staying in the country. Regardless of what the particular charge entails, our immigration lawyers can identify ways that you can fight back against deportation, such as:

  • Waivers — If you can demonstrate that deporting you or your spouse would cause an extreme or unusual hardship for your family, you may be able to get a waiver of deportation depending on your status and the number of years you’ve spent in the United States. In these matters, the burden of proof is on the individual seeking a waiver, so it is important to act quickly and get help from an attorney who can prepare the strongest possible case on your behalf.
  • Adjustments of status — Though you might have been admitted to the country on a temporary basis, the work you’ve done and the relationships that you’ve built here could justify a change under United States Citizenship and Immigration Services regulations. It is possible to adjust your immigration status based on your relationship with a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident who holds a work visa. Your employer also may sponsor you.
  • Cancellations — A deportation order may be canceled if you can prove that you have been in the United States for more than 10 years, that you are of good moral character, and that your deportation would cause an “exceptional and extremely unusual hardship” to a spouse or child who is a citizen or legal resident.
    Once you receive the Notice to Appear for a removal action, the clock starts ticking. Our firm has more than six decades of experience handling all types of immigration, visa, and naturalization issues. We’ll represent you in the master calendar hearing, develop a sound defense strategy for the merits hearing, and make every effort to help you stay in the United States.

We guide clients seeking DACA protection

Individuals who were brought to the United States illegally before the age of 16 can delay or end the deportation process under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Though DACA is currently being challenged in court, these people can apply for a renewable two-year waiver and a work visa as long as they meet certain requirements. If you believe you qualify, our immigration lawyers will examine the details of your case and pursue a resolution that lets you remain in this country to study or work.

Common Removal and Deportation Issues We Help With:

  • Illegal Entry or Overstaying Visa: If someone enters the U.S. illegally or overstays their authorized period of stay on a visa, they can be subject to deportation.
  • Criminal Convictions: Non-U.S. citizens who are convicted of certain crimes, such as drug offenses, domestic disputes and battery, aggravated felonies, and violent offenses, may face deportation proceedings.
  • Visa Violations: Violating the terms of a visa, such as working without authorization on a tourist visa or studying on a tourist visa without proper authorization, can lead to deportation.
  • Fraud or Misrepresentation: Providing false information or documents in immigration applications, such as marriage fraud or fake employment claims, can result in deportation if discovered.
  • Public Charge Grounds: If an immigrant becomes primarily dependent on government assistance programs for their support, they may be subject to deportation under public charge grounds.
  • Immigration Violations: Failing to attend immigration hearings, failing to comply with deportation orders, or engaging in other immigration-related violations can lead to deportation.
  • Security Concerns: Individuals who pose a threat to national security or have engaged in terrorism-related activities may be subject to deportation.
  • Violation of Protection Orders: Non-U.S. citizen spouses or partners who have been subjected to protective orders due to domestic violence or similar situations and are found to have violated these orders might face deportation.
  • Unlawful Presence: Individuals who accumulate a certain period of unlawful presence in the U.S. may face a bar from re-entering the country, making them eligible for deportation upon leaving.
  • Health-Related Grounds: Immigrants who are found to have certain communicable diseases or are deemed to be a public health risk can be subject to deportation.

Deportation cases can also be influenced by individual circumstances, legal arguments, and discretionary decisions made by immigration authorities or judges. If you or someone you know is facing potential deportation, turn to PPID for guidance.
