At Smotritsky Law Group, PLLC, we provide skillful, effective legal services for immigrants from all around the world. We have developed an in-depth understanding of both U.S. immigration law and the unique difficulties immigrants face, especially those involving deportation. We are equipped and ready to help you fight threats of removal and protect your status in the United States.
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 we 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
