Common Reasons for Deportation Threats
Immigration policies are always changing, and they have only become harsher in recent years. The reasons for possible removal are expanding, and may include the following:
- Staying on an expired visa
- Entering the United States without a visa
- Not complying with the terms of your visa, including working without the proper authorization
- Marriage fraud
- False information on immigration applications
- Arrests, criminal charges, or criminal convictions
- Violating a restraining order
You might receive a Notice to Appear (NTA) in immigration court, which initiates your removal proceedings. This notice should spell out the reasons for your possible deportation. Receiving notice can be distressing, but you should never ignore the situation. Instead, you should immediately contact our Spanish speaking deportation defense attorneys.
Receiving notice of proceedings does not automatically mean you will be deported, as there are ways to fight against removal. The deportation process can be lengthy, and you can often present a defense that allows you to remain in the U.S. It is critical to call an attorney right away, as the government will not provide legal assistance for you. Our legal team has successfully defended against the removal of clients in many different situations, and some defenses include:
- Applying for lawful permanent residency if you are eligible
- Seeking cancellation of removal based on time spent in the U.S. and demonstrating good moral character
- Seeking protection under asylum laws, the Convention Against Torture (CAT), and other provisions
- Proving that you are, in fact, a U.S. citizen
We review each individual case to identify any and all possible defenses.
