Lawyers Helping Immigrants Defend Against Removal in Orange County, Winter Park, and Daytona Beach

Immigrants and their family members will often make sacrifices and put a great deal of effort into achieving a better life in the United States. Unfortunately, people may sometimes run afoul of immigration laws, causing them to be detained by agencies such as Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and face the possibility of deportation. Immigrants and their loved ones will need to understand their options during deportation proceedings and the ways they may be able to defend against removal from the U.S. To make sure these issues will be handled correctly, it is crucial to obtain representation from an attorney who has experience defending immigrants in deportation cases.

Potential Defenses Against Deportation

There are a variety of reasons that an immigrant may face deportation. These cases will often involve undocumented immigrants who entered the United States without obtaining a visa or those who remained in the U.S. after the expiration of a temporary nonimmigrant visa. However, documented immigrants who had received visas or Green Cards may also be subject to deportation based on criminal convictions, claims of immigration fraud, or failure to meet certain requirements during the immigration visa process.

In some cases, a person may be able to apply for cancellation of removal by showing that they have lived in the United States for at least 10 years, they have good moral character, and their deportation would result in extreme hardship for a spouse, child, or parent who is a U.S. citizen or Green Card holder. If a person does not qualify for cancellation of removal as a non-legal permanent resident, other defenses against deportation may be available, including:

  • Adjustment of status - A person with nonimmigrant status may be able to apply to become a lawful permanent resident based on their relationship to a family member who is a U.S. citizen. Generally, this option will be available if a person had entered the United States legally and an immigrant visa is immediately available to them.
  • Asylum - If returning to their home country would put a person at risk of harm due to persecution based on their race, religion, or political opinions, they can apply for protections against deportation.
  • Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) - Family members who are the victims of domestic abuse committed by a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident may be able to remain in the U.S. if they meet certain requirements.
  • Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) - Undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as children may receive protections against deportation if they meet certain qualifications.
