Grounds for Deportation
In the United States, there are numerous reasons that an individual or a family could face deportation. Here is some information regarding the grounds for deportation in America, and how an experienced immigration lawyer can help defend your freedoms.
Grounds for Deportation | Laws
The grounds for deportation in the United States include:
- 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.
