Options for Deportation Defense
Too many people assume that once they face deportation proceedings, the result is inevitable, and there is no point in fighting against deportation. However, our skilled legal team knows there are different ways to defend against deportation, depending on your circumstances.
First, we can identify whether you can argue that you are not, in fact, removable as the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alleges. If you contest charges of removability, DHS will need to provide sufficient evidence to support its allegations. If DHS cannot do so, the immigration judge should rule in your favor. Our deportation lawyers in Walnut Creek can provide aggressive defense against removability in these proceedings.
Even if you are found removable, our deportation defense attorneys request different types of relief from removal, and each will have its own results.
Some common requests include:
- Adjustment of status based on family
- Withholding of removal
- Cancellation of removal if you do not have a green card
- Cancellation under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)
- Cancellation under the Convention Against Torture (CAT)
- Deferred action
- Voluntary departure
- Prosecutorial discretion
What Are the Grounds for Deportation?
There are many reasons why an individual may be deported, but some common grounds for removal may include, but are not limited to:
- Being in the United States illegally
- Immigration fraud – fraudulent marriage for a green card, altering documents to obtain government benefits, lying about citizenship to obtain benefits, etc.
- Criminal convictions – aggravated felonies, crimes of moral turpitude, drug crimes, firearms offenses, and domestic violence
