What Is Deportation?

Deportation is the formal removal of a foreign national from the United States. Individuals can be deported if they have violated an immigration law, such as violating their visa, participated in criminal acts, or are a threat to public safety.

Possible Defenses for Deportation

If you are facing deportation, an attorney can help you figure out which relief from removal you qualify for. We will review your specific circumstances to see if it is possible to seek a cancellation of the removal order, or to have one of your family members – if they are U.S. citizens or lawful, permanent residents – petition for you to receive a green card. Other possible defenses for deportation include:

  • Asylum: Through the defensive asylum process, you can seek asylum as a defense against removal from the United States. This protects individuals who have fled persecution or fear future persecution in their country of origin, by allowing them to remain in the United States legally.
  • Family-based adjustment of status: A family member who is a U.S. citizen may be able to sponsor you and help you go through the adjustment of status process of getting a green card.
  • Protection under the Convention Against Torture (CAT): This is an important form of relief available for those who may not qualify for asylum. An applicant must prove that it is more likely than not they would be tortured if they are sent back to their country of origin.
  • Cancellation of Removal: This is a way for a person to receive a green card if they can prove they have physically lived in the United States for 10 consecutive years and also that being deported would result in exceptional and extremely unusual hardship.
  • Cancellation under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA): This is a way to stop removal proceedings for victims of abuse by a U.S. citizen or green-card holding spouse or parent.
  •  Deferred action: This is a way to put your case on hold – so you are not given legal status but you are also not deported.
