Miami Deportation Defense / Stays of Removal Attorneys
"Our Deportation Defense Lawyers will fight to keep you in the United
Deportation Defense is an area of Immigration Law which concentrates on
defending a person from being deported from the United States. The experienced
deportation defense attorneys at Revilla Law Firm, P.A., are dedicated
to providing high-quality deportation defense representation before USCIS,
the Immigration Court, the Board of Immigration Appeals, the Federal District
Courts, and the Federal Courts of Appeals.
If you or a loved one is facing deportation, it's important that you
contact an experienced immigration and deportation defense attorney who
can provide accurate legal guidance to help you achieve the best outcome
in your immigration case.
Our Miami immigration lawyers concentrate on deportation defense cases
and we have helped thousands of immigrants remain in the United States.
There are various forms of relief that are available to those that the
U.S. government seeks to keep out of the United States. To avoid deportation,
certain waivers can be used to accomplish this goal. If you are convicted
of certain crimes such as crimes involving moral turpitude, even if they
are aggravated felonies, or 30 grams or less of marijuana you may be eligible
for a waiver under section 212(h) of the Immigration and Nationality Act
(“Act”). A grant of this type of waiver will help you become
a permanent resident or help keep your residency depending on the circumstances.
212(c) Waivers Now Available for Convictions After Trial
If you have a conviction resulting from a
plea ortrial for an aggravated felony which occurred before April 24, 1996, and before
April 24, 1997, for certain crimes, you may be eligible for a waiver under
former section 212(c) of the Act. A grant of this waiver will result in
preventing the loss of residency.
If you are a lawful permanent resident and you have a conviction for a
crime that is not an aggravated felony you may be eligible for cancellation
of removal for certain permanent residents. You must establish certain
requirements under the Immigration Act. You should consult with a competent
Immigration Attorney to see if you are eligible to apply for this form
of relief before the Immigration Court.
If you are accused of committing fraud, including marriage fraud, by the
U.S. government you may be eligible for a waiver under sections 212(i)
or 237(a)(1)(h) under the Act.
If you are inadmissible based on a health-related ground you may be eligible
for a waiver under section 212(g) of the Act. Once again a grant of this
waiver will help you become a lawful permanent resident.
The requirements for each waiver vary, so they should be thoroughly examined
through a consultation with a competent immigration attorney who concentrates
in deportation defense law. Revilla Law Firm, P.A. handles deportation
defense and asylum cases from all parts of the world. To be eligible for
asylum, past or future persecution based on political opinion, race, membership
in a particular social group, including homosexuality, nationality, or
other serious harm must be established. While an asylum application must
be filed within one year of entering the U.S., there are extraordinary
circumstances which excuse the failure to file within the deadline.
If you have been physically present in the United States for more than
ten years and you have a spouse, parent, or child who is a lawful permanent
resident or a United States citizen, you may be eligible to apply for
cancellation of removal for certain non-lawful permanent residents. It
must be established that your removal from the U.S. will result in exceptional
or extremely unusual hardship to your qualifying, immediate relatives.
To apply for this form of relief you must be in removal proceedings. If
the Immigration Judge grants your application you become a lawful permanent resident.
Decisions from the Immigration Court can be appealed to the Board of Immigration
Appeals. Certain decisions from the Board of Immigration Appeals can be
appealed to the Federal Circuit Courts of Appeals. Likewise, certain cases
from the Federal Circuit Courts of Appeals can be appealed to the U.S.
Certain cases can be brought to the Federal District Courts such as Writs
of Mandamus, where it is requested that a Court mandates that an entity
such as the Department of Homeland Security take action on a particular
case, or Writs of Habeas Corpus, where it is requested that an individual
be released from unlawful detention.
Revilla Law Firm’s unique combination of criminal defense and former
U.S. immigration prosecutorial experience provides our clients with the
ability to successfully lift Immigration Holds or Detainers. In many cases
Border Patrol, Customs and Border Protection, and Immigration and Customs
Enforcement will place a hold on an individual who has been arrested for
a crime. The result is that this person cannot be released from jail even
after placing a criminal bond. Often times this hold is illegal or improper
because there is no conviction of the criminal charge. Revilla Law Firm
has the experience to successfully get many Immigration Holds lifted and
effectuate a person’s release through creative legal arguments.
