Removal Defense/ Deportation Defense

Deportation is also called removal proceedings. When someone is facing deportation, it means he is in removal proceedings in an immigration court. The U.S. Department of Justice can start  removal proceedings against an immigrant. The triggers to start a removal process against an immigrant could be anything, big and small. For example, a domestic assault charge could trigger the removal process. A DUI could trigger the removal process. In the past cases, there have been cases where the asylum seekers who had lawful status in the U.S. and committed no crime being subject to deportation.

There Are Different Types of Relief

If someone is a permanent resident or Green Card holder, he may be eligible for cancellation of deportation if he can convince the judge that (1) he has been a green card holder for at least 5 years, (2) he has established 7 years of continuous residence in the U.S. before the deportation process, (3) he has been convicted of an aggravated felony. The key word is MAY. Therefore, being qualified for these 3 requirements does not guarantee your freedom. It is totally up to the immigration judge to decide whether he should give you another chance.

If someone is not a green card holder and is facing deportation. He may be eligible for cancellation of deportation if he can convince the immigration judge that (1) he has been in the U.S. for at least 10 continuous years, (2) during those years, he has been a good person, and (3) he has no been convicted a certain of crime listed in the U.S. laws, and (4) deportation would result in exceptional and extremely unusual hardship to his spouse, children, or parent who is a U.S. citizen or green card holder.

Li Law Group has represented people who were facing deportation. In the past we have seen a lawful immigrant who was a material witness to a pending investigation. However, because he was an asylee and had no contacts in the U.S., and he had no lawyer, the prosecutor in the case obtained an order to put him in jail while the investigation is pending. Even though he committed no crimes and had no charge against him. This individual was soon placed in the deportation process because the fact that he was in jail.

When someone faces deportation, there are ways to ask an immigration judge to release him or to cancel the deportation. In a 2019 case, we successfully won the following decision to cancel the deportation/removal process.
