Deportation and Removal

There are many different situations in which the U.S. can deport or remove someone from the country, such as participation in criminal acts, a threat to public safety, or visa violations. In general, any immigrant, even permanent residents, who violates the terms of their stay can be deported or removed. Fortunately, Alexandre Law Firm has vast knowledge and experience in defending cases to prevent deportations and removals from the United States.

Deportations impact not only the individuals who are deported, but also their families left behind. Most people who are deported have lived in the U.S. for more than a decade and several of them are parents of U.S. citizens or care for elderly U.S. citizens. Fortunately, the U.S. Constitution guarantees all immigrants the right to an attorney and a hearing in U.S. court.

Few things are more terrifying than going through the process of deportation from the country that has become your home.

Here at Alexandre Law, we are specialized in deportation and removal proceedings. You may be under deportation proceedings because you have no legal right to stay in the country. Or you may be facing deportation proceedings because you made a mistake that resulted in a crime and you were convicted. Even “green card” holders can be deported! What people often do not know is that there are solutions to many of these cases, such as:

  • Cancellation of Removal for lawful permanent resident.
  • Special Relief, known as 212(c), for certain criminal convictions before or in 1996.
  • Cancellation of Removal for illegal permanent residents.
  • Adjustment or readjustment of status
  • Waiver for those convicted of certain crimes known as 212(h) Waiver
  • Asylum, Withholding of removal, or Convention Against Torture (CAT)
  • Prosecutorial discretion and administrative closure

In some cases, you will not be eligible for any of these forms of relief, and this is when many attorneys will say that nothing more can be done in your case and will suggest that you apply for a Voluntary Withdrawal. However, there are often constitutional and human rights violations against you by an immigration officer during the evaluation of your case.

If you believe you may face deportation or removal proceedings, but you believe you have the right to stay in the U.S., contact Alexandre Law Firm now to schedule a consultation.
