Immigration Deportation Proceedings throughout Long Island and the New York Area
Have you received a notice to appear for a deportation hearing? If so, it is vital to consult with an experienced New York immigration lawyer as soon as possible. You should never appear before an immigration judge for a deportation hearing without having an experienced immigration lawyer at your side. Even green card holders should seek legal representation to obtain proactively the available remedies and relief in their cases. For many immigrants, legal remedies or criminal defense strategies exist that can help them avoid deportation.
Deportation is the official removal of an immigrant from the United States and return to the person’s country of origin. When an immigration judge determines that you have violated certain immigration or criminal laws, deportability may become an issue.
Violations that Expose Immigrants to Possible Removal
Circumstances that can lead to deportation proceedings include:
- Conviction of certain criminal activities
- Undocumented presence in the U.S.
- Violations of visa terms
- Failure to advise the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) of an address change
- Fraudulent marriage
- Requiring need-based government assistance because of causes arising before U.S. entry
- Other immigration law violations
Legal Actions a Lawyer Can Take to Defend Against Deportation
Some of the legal actions a skilled immigration lawyer can take to protect your rights and defend against deportation include:
- Cancellation of removal
- Adjustment of status
- Withholding of deportation
- Voluntary departure
- Waivers of deportability
- Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)
- Prosecutorial Discretion
If you have been hurt in an accident or by a product, you may be entitled to a cash reward. It is important to have an attorney who understands your legal status in the United States guide you through these types of cases while protecting your rights so you receive the compensation you are entitled to.
