What to Do When Facing Deportation

If you have been detained and threatened with deportation, you may have several potential arguments that could help you remain in the United States.

One way to effectively contest deportation proceedings is to prove that you are not actually removable. For example, if you are a lawful permanent resident and have not violated any of the terms of your residency, the government may not have sufficient grounds to deport you.

Stopping a removable proceeding will be more difficult, however, if you entered the U.S. unlawfully, overstayed your visa, or otherwise violated the terms of your immigration status. If you are removable for these reasons, there are circumstances under which the government may grant relief from deportation. You may, for example, be eligible for asylum status or a waiver, and our deportation lawyers in NYC have the skills and experience needed to fight for these forms of relief on your behalf.

Offenses & Mistakes that Can Lead to Deportation Proceedings

Depending on your immigration status, there are a variety of crimes that can put you at risk of being deported:

  • Crimes of moral turpitude, such as rape, drunk driving, or domestic abuse
  • Aggravated felonies, such as engaging in child pornography, theft, or murder
  • Falsely claiming that you are an American citizen
  • Failure to notify USCIS of a change of name, address, or other critical identifying information
  • Any other crime listed in 8 USC § 1227

What Are Removal Proceedings?

Removal proceedings, also known as deportation, is when the U.S. government determines an individual who is not a U.S. citizen must be removed from the United States.

Below is an overview of removal proceedings:

  • The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) serves the individual with a Notice to Appear (NTA).
  • Removal hearings are held before the immigration judge. They decide if the alien’s actions make them removable or if they are eligible for deportation relief.
  • Next, comes the initial hearing or master calendar hearing. Do not miss it or an automatic order of removal will be issued, which means you will not be able to return to the U.S. for 10 years.
  • Seek out an experienced deportation attorney before your merit hearing so they can work with you in creating a solid strategy against the attorney for DHS.
  • Attend the merit hearing, where your case will be represented. The immigration judge will decide if you will be deported or not.
