If your family member is facing criminal or immigration charges in a state, federal or immigration court, you need our immigration defense attorney to protect your family member from deportation and removal from the United States. Our deportation and removal defense attorney offers removal and deportation defense at US Immigration Courts, the Board of Immigration Appeals, as well as nation-wide immigration litigation in the federal courts and courts of appeals.
Bond hearing proceedings
Any non citizen charged with an immigration violation, other than a criminal conviction, is statutorily eligible for release on bond. Our immigration defense attorney will file a Motion for Bond and attend your immigration bond hearing to request your release from immigration detention. We will evaluate whether you are subject to mandatory detention and will assess whether your criminal conviction subjects you to removal and/or deportation and makes you inadmissible into the United States. We will research the law and argue under existing law or an extension of the existing law that you are not subject to mandatory detention and are eligible to be released on immigration bond.
Cancellation of Removal or Suspension of Deportation
If you are a lawful permanent resident (LPR) and resided continuously in the United States for seven years; you are not a convicted aggravated felon and your circumstances warrant favorable exercise of discretion our deportation defense lawyer will seek cancellation of removal for you. Likewise if you are not a LPR but you resided in the United States for the past ten years, you are not a convicted felon and your removal will cause exceptional and extremely unusual hardship to a U.S. citizen or LPR spouse, parent or child, our deportation defense attorney will seek cancellation of removal for you. We will seek cancellation of deportation for you if you are eligible under section 212(c) of the Immigration & Nationality Act or NACARA. If the immigration court denies cancellation of removal or suspension of deportation relief, our immigration attorney will appeal your case to the Board of Immigration Appeals.
Waivers and other forms of relief
When cancellation of removal or suspension of deportation is not feasible, our deportation lawyer will seek other available relief. For example, voluntary departure, waiver of inadmissibility, asylum, withholding of removal, or application for adjustment of status are available forms of relief during removal or deportation proceedings. Waivers and exceptions to the grounds of inadmissibility or deportability are available for crimes of moral turpitude with juvenile or petty offense convictions, multiple criminal convictions, for crimes of prostitution, commercial vice activities or possession of certain controlled substances. Defenses for cancellation of removal are available for first time controlled substance offenders detained or tried in the Ninth Circuit. Similarly, waivers are available for three and ten year bar violators, domestic violence offenders, aliens involved in fraud, smuggling, and public charge violations.
Federal court immigration litigation
While most immigration matters involve administrative court proceedings at the US Immigration Courts and the Board of Immigration Appeals, federal courts such as the Court of Appeals and the U.S. District Courts have jurisdiction over many immigration matters. We successfully sued DHS, USCIS, and FBI for delays in processing of green card and naturalization applications under Federal Mandamus Act and Administrative Procedure Act. Defend your immigration status with the best immigration defense attorney who will fight for your immigration rights.
