Our firm represents, and advocates for, immigrants facing deportation from the United States. This process involves appearing before an immigration judge in immigration court. Depending on your specific circumstances, below are the most common defenses to removal:
Adjustment of Status
Asylum, Withholding of Removal, and Relief under the Convention Against Torture
TPS and NACARA
VAWA and VAWA Cancellation of Removal
Non-Lawful Permanent Resident Cancellation of Removal
Motion to Terminate
Special Immigrant Juvenile Status
This is the primary basis for legal immigration to the United States. Under current law, U.S. citizens and
lawful permanent residents (LPRs) can sponsor certain family members for a visa that provides permanent
residence, more commonly referred to as a "green card." But only immediate relatives and family
preference categories are eligible for family visas, and this does not include grandparents, aunts, uncles, in-
laws and cousins.
This is another common way to obtain permanent legal status in the United States, the difference being that
this process involves getting sponsored by your U.S.-based employer. There are several different types of
work visas and, depending on your situation, the process could vary from type to type.
Immigrants who are subject to removal are now much more likely to be detained by immigration
authorities. ICE has the authority to: 1) stop an immigrant at the airport after traveling abroad; 2) interview
an immigrant while in jail on a criminal matter; and 3) pick up immigrants living in the U.S. who have prior
final orders of removal. ICE also has the authority to detain an immigrant in any facility it wishes, even if the
facility is in a different state than your home. If you find yourself or your loved one in the custody of ICE or
you or your loved one have been arrested in a criminal matter and anticipate being detained by ICE, contact
our experienced immigration attorneys for a free consultation to discuss your options.
