DEPORTATION DEFENSE: How to Defend Yourself from Removal
Having a family member placed in deportation proceedings can be a terrifying experience. However, an experienced immigration attorney can help.
Immigration Law and Deportation Procedure
Facing a removal proceeding can be a stressful experience. On top of that, U.S. immigration laws can be notoriously difficult to understand. Typically, when the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) determines that an individual is eligible to be deported, they will issue a Notice to Appear (NTA). The Notice to Appear before the immigration court cites the immigration law under which the individual in question is deportable.
During the hearing, a non-citizen will have the chance to admit or deny immigration violations they are charged with. Knowledgeable legal representation can assist with presenting evidence during the removal proceedings, which can help the non-citizen potentially avoid deportation.
How to Fight Deportation
There are many paths of defense to deportation. Which one will your immigration lawyer use to help you avoid being deported depends on your circumstances.
Types of deportation defenses include:
- Voluntary Departure
- LPR Cancellation of Removal
- Non-LPR Cancellation of Removal
- Former 212(c)
- Adjustment of Status
- Suspension of Deportation
- Relief under Convention Against Torture Act (CAT)
- U Visa/T Visa/VAWA
It is typically a good idea to contest any charges of removability. If you are undocumented, you are most likely removable. However, the DHS may fail to prove its allegations.
If the immigration court denies your case, there are still options – you can appeal the decision to the Board of Immigration Appeals.
