Depending on the circumstances of your deportation proceedings, you may have different defense options available. Our deportation defense lawyers can examine your situation to find the best method to fight your removal from the United States.

If you are facing removal proceedings, defense options may include the following:

  • Applications for Permanent Residency/Adjustment of Status – Ideally, Green Card and other immigration status applications should be filed before a removal proceeding begins, but they can serve as an effective defense to deportation in the right circumstances. An Adjustment of Status application can be filed in tandem with an approved family- oremployment-based petition.
  • Criminal Waivers – Criminal waivers are typically available to permanent residents facing deportation due to crimes committed in the past. In certain circumstances, a person who is not yet a permanent resident can petition for a criminal waiver to obtain status as a permanent resident.
  • Noncriminal Waivers – Certain activities, such as lying to get an immigration benefit, can frustrate a legitimate petition for status. In these cases, a noncriminal waiver may need to be filed in conjunction with your petition for status  to obtain approval. This is helpful in obtaining favorable decisions on U visas and permanent residency based on family and employment visas.
  • Asylum, Withholding of Removal & Relief Under the Convention Against Torture – Asylum under the Convention Against Torture may be a formidable deportation defense for immigrants who entered the country illegally but can prove they have suffered or will suffer harm if returned to their own country. There is a level of harm that must be proven and it must apply to certain social classifications, such as race, religion, or being a member of a certain political group. Similar removal defenses include the Temporary Protected Status, the Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act (NACARA), and the Violence Against Women Act.
  • Renewal of Form I-751 Removal of Conditional Residence – A person who is a conditional permanent resident can be subjected to a removal proceeding if they do not file an I-751 petition in time. The I-751 petition can be renewed as a defense to deportation removal.
  • Prosecutorial Discretion – It is possible to request the government simply close a removal proceeding. Government attorneys do have the discretion to close a case and do so on a limited basis. One reason a government attorney may terminate a removal proceeding is because the attorney has a long caseload and finds the case of the client is not a top priority due to the client’s close personal ties in the States and lack of a criminal history.
  • U Visas – There are incentives available for immigrants that assist in criminal investigations. U visas are available for certain victims of crimes who are helpful in the investigation process. Approval of a U visa can delay or terminate removal proceedings.
  • Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) – DACA may be available for individuals brought to the U.S. as children who attended school in the U.S. and have not been outside of the U.S. for too long. An approval of a DACA petition can delay or terminate removal proceedings.
  • Non-Legal Permanent Resident Cancellation of Removal – If an applicant can establish they have been physically present in the country at least ten years before the start of the removal process, have a good moral record, and can prove a U.S. citizen or Permanent Legal Resident will suffer extreme hardship if the applicant would be deported, the applicant can have deportation canceled and they can obtain permanent resident status.
  • Voluntary Departure – There are situations where there is no relief to removal proceedings and deportation is inevitable. Sometimes it is best to voluntarily depart the United States, especially if the applicant will be eligible for a visa in the future.
