U.S. without a visa, but did so to escape persecution in your country
of origin to seek
asylum in the United States.
Deportation defense strategies the firm can use include:
Status adjustment: One of the fastest ways to make it so the DHS does not consider you an
illegal alien is to adjust your immigration status. Even if you are not
considered a resident or citizen, you may be able to quickly shift from
nonimmigrant to immigrant and stay in the states longer.
Asylum: If you have fled your country of origin out of fear of prosecution or
physical harm, you should be protected under asylum laws, allowing you
to earn a work permit to stay in the States and most likely a green card
later on. If the danger of your home country is not readily obvious to
the DHS, you may still be able to apply for withholding of removal. There
are also other specific asylum acts that may be pertinent your situation, such as
Convention Against Torture,
Violence Against Women Act, and
NACARA (Life Act).
Cancelation of removal: If you have stayed in the United States for more than 10 years, whether
you were a legal immigrant or a nonimmigrant alien, you may move to have
your deportation canceled if you can show that your removal would cause
undue hardship to someone in your immediate family who
is a citizen or permanent resident.
Deferred action: You can put your case on hold while you attempt to set things right. This
is generally granted if you are going to be deported for your criminal
record but you want to be able to clean it up, perhaps through expungement.
You will need a trusted immigration law attorney to convince the DHS that
they should pause or othewise suspend your case.
Voluntary departure: If there appears to be no chance of stopping the DHS’s deportation
procedure, you may be able to at the very least convince them to allow
you to voluntarily depart the United States. This is somewhat like a plea
bargain in a criminal defense case, as it is a way of adhering to what
the government wants without putting negative stigma on your record.
