Deportation defense and removal proceedings


A removal proceeding is scheduled after a person was arrested to determine whether he, she or they will be deported. As soon as a non-citizen receives “Notice to Appear” issued by ICE, it is absolutely vital for him, her or them to seek professional help to avoid deportation. It is important to know that in removal proceedings, the U.S. government does not have to provide immigrants with an attorney free of charge.

Usually, the immigrant may be subject to a removal proceeding because of a violation of visa status. There are a number of defenses available for a non-citizen in a removal proceeding. For example:

  • Apply for permanent residency/adjustment of status;

  • Criminal waivers;

  • Noncriminal waivers;

  • Asylum;

  • Prosecutorial discretion;

  • U visa (visas for certain victims of crimes);

  • Deferred Action for Certain Childhood Arrivals (DACA);

  • Relief under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)

  • Motion to terminate;

  • Voluntary departure.
