Protecting Your Right To Remain In The United States
At Lee & Powell Immigration Law Group, we urge anyone who is facing deportation and removal proceedings to obtain representation from an experienced immigration lawyer. The deportation and removal process has unimaginable consequences if it is handled poorly. Long-lasting and even permanent separation can arise in families, which will impact the daily lives of everyone involved. People who were brought up in the United States could be made to leave their husband or wife, mother or father, brother or sister to travel to a place that is completely unfamiliar to them. It is also highly likely that the deported person will never be allowed to return to the United States.
You can talk to a skilled deportation defense attorney by contacting our Atlanta office. Our attorneys have decades of immigration law experience that they will use to create the strongest possible defense for your deportation case. Call us now at 404-892-8300 to schedule your free consultation.
The Deportation And Removal Process
Deportation has many steps that are complex and difficult to understand. The process begins with an official notification, which can become a removal order. Even if you have started the process and the development of your case has been pointing toward removal, there are ways to avoid the devastating consequences. Some of the most prevalent defense strategies include the cancellation of removal, adjustment of status, temporary protected status and asylum. Cancellation of removal means your deportation is canceled or stopped.
You may be able to use the above defense strategies if:
- You have lived in the United States for seven years or longer after you were allowed into the U.S.
- You have been classified as a lawful permanent resident for a minimum of five years.
- You have never been found guilty of a felony.
- You can prove you entered into the United States as a refugee.
- Even if you have been given an order for removal, it may be possible for you to be allowed to remain temporarily in the U.S. if you are from a specific country that has yet to be declared safe.
