Defending Against Deportation
Deportation is a serious issue that can tear apart families and ruin lives. An experienced firm can help build a defense to prove that you should be allowed to remain in the United States with your loved ones. Here are a few important things to know if you have questions about defending against deportation.
Defending Against Deportation | Grounds for Deportation
In the United States, there are numerous reasons an individual or family would face deportation, including:
- Gaining residency in the United States through fraud
- Being convicted of certain crimes, such as drugs, assault or DUI
- Failing to notify U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services of any address or status change
- Having an expired visa
- Illegal entry into the United States
- Posing a terroristic threat
If you were charged with any of the above infractions, you will be given a Notice to Appear (NTA) from the Department of Homeland Security and will have to appear before a judge. We look at all of the evidence against you and fight for your rights in court against unjustified deportation.
