2 ways to potentially fight immigration removal

Fight Your DUI Charges. Contact Us Today.

Leaving your native country may have been a considerable step in your life. As you made your home here in the United States, you may have never felt the desire to return to your country of origin simply due to the better life you created for yourself here. Of course, as an immigrant, you could easily face legal issues and fear the possibility of deportation.

Numerous reasons exist that could lead to the government considering you eligible for removal. In the event that deportation proceedings begin, you may feel as if you have no options for dealing with the serious predicament you face. Luckily, you do have avenues to consider that may help you combat removal.

Asylum

One of the reasons you came to this country in the first place may have had to do with the persecution you faced in your native country. If you successfully traveled to the United States, to now face the prospect of going back to face negative actions in another country, you may feel a great sense of distress. However, the possibility exists that you could potentially apply for asylum within the U.S. if you have fear of persecution relating to one or more of the following aspects:

  • Politics
  • Religion
  • Nationality
  • Race
  • Social status or group membership

If you gain asylum in the U.S., you may have the ability to apply for permanent residency after a year.

Cancellation of permanent resident removal

If you have already obtained permanent residency in the United States but still face removal actions, you may have the ability to cancel the removal. In order to do so, you must meet the following qualifications:

  • Must have held lawful permanent resident status for at least five years
  • Must have lived in the U.S. for at least seven years
  • Must not have been convicted of any aggravated crime
  • Must have met qualifications for cancelling removal on security grounds

Of course, the court will also examine various factors of your life to determine whether canceling the removal order will have a positive impact.

Legal options

Because dealing with the federal government when it comes to deportation and other immigration issues can prove frightening and confusing, you may wish to find out information on the laws applicable to your case. Additionally, you may also wish to enlist the assistance of a knowledgeable immigration attorney with the ability to help you defend against removal action.
