Irving Removal Defense Attorney

New Mexico Deportation Defense Lawyer

Lawyer in Texas for Fighting Deportation Orders

Immigrants who are convicted of a criminal offense or violate the conditions of their visa may receive a Notice to Appear (NTA) from Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Regardless of the reason for the NTA, you must appear in court before an immigration judge and face the possibility of being deported.

When you appear in court, the attorney representing the government is likely to have years of experience prosecuting deportation hearings. If you show up in court unprepared, your chances of being able to stay here are not good. That's why it's important to be represented by an experienced attorney with the knowledge and skills to fight the deportation order and help you stay in the country.

With locations in Irving, Texas, and Albuquerque, New Mexico, John W. Lawit, LLC represents people from all around the globe in removal defense matters.

Common Reasons for Removal Proceedings

If you committed fraud to enter the country, overstayed your visa, broke the law or appear to be a threat to the country, you are liable to receive a removal order. Other common reasons for removal proceedings include:

  • Marriages considered to be fraudulent or legally invalid
  • Working without proper authorization
  • Entering the country without a visa
  • Violating a restraining or protective order

There may be more than one reason you were targeted, including multiple minor offenses. The NTA will outline the reasons for the removal order.

Most Detainees Can Post a Bond for Release

Immigration bonds work the same way as paying bail to get released from jail until trial. As soon as bail is established, the detainee must first prove they are not a flight risk and not a danger to the community. They must then prove that they face credible threats to their safety if they return to their home country. When detainees meet these criteria, they usually qualify for an immigration bond unless they have a criminal record or have been deported in the past.

Strategies for Fighting Deportation

The first option we examine when a client is facing deportation is to seek a cancellation of the removal order. If that is not possible, we review the specific circumstances of the client's situation to see if another form of relief is available.

Because every client's situation is unique, every defense strategy we deploy on behalf of our clients is unique. No matter what your situation is or the reasons for the removal order, our attorneys have the knowledge and experience to help you fight deportation. These are some of the strategies that may be available for those fighting removal:

  • Asylum for those fleeing persecution from their home country
  • Cancellation of Removal for certain eligible immigrants who have resided in the United States for several years
  • Adjustment of Status for those with a pending or approved underlying petition and who are eligible to get their green card in the United States
  • VAWA is a humanitarian benefit for victims of battery or extreme cruelty at the hands of certain green card holder or U.S. citizen relatives.
  • Other Humanitarian Relief, such as TPS, DACA, U visas, and T visas
  • Prosecutorial Discretion for those individuals who are not a risk to public safety or national security
