There are certain requirements to removal proceedings that serve as guarantees to the alien that he or she will be treated as fairly as the process allows. The alien must be given proper notice and may choose to be represented by an attorney. The alien must be given the opportunity to present evidence on his or her behalf and examine the evidence against him or her. The decision to remove/deport or not to remove/deport the alien must be based on reasonable, substantial, and probative evidence.
There are a number of circumstances that could lead to deportation or removal. The most common reasons immigrants or foreign visitors are deported include:
- Felony or misdemeanor criminal convictions
- Immigration violations
- Visa or green card expiration
- Employment violations
- Immigration fraud
- Final Order of Removal/Deportation after a denial of asylum; or
- Failing to depart after a grant of voluntary departure
There are a number of strategies we can employ to help you avoid deportation, such as obtaining political asylum, cancellation of removal, voluntary departure, adjusting your status to permanent residency, or attaining a waiver or pardon under the law.
