Being removed (deported) from the United States can be a life-changing event that rips people away from their families and communities. However, with planning, strategy, and litigation, these cases can often be won. If you or someone you love is facing the threat of deportation, you need an aggressive and experienced immigration attorney who will fight to win and keep families together.
Fortunately, for many noncitizens, being placed into immigration court – what is legally known as removal proceedings – does not mean automatic deportation. To the contrary, there are many types of removal defense strategies available in these types of cases to prevent removal or obtain lawful status, such as cancellation of removal, adjustment of status, waivers of inadmissibility, asylum and other persecution-based protection, and other avenues to obtain status or avoid removal.
An experienced immigration attorney is critical to ensure a successful outcome in an immigration court case. Often, a successful defense means that a person can obtain a work permit, remain in the United States, become a lawful permanent resident, obtain another type of immigration status, or keep their current immigration status.
