What Happens When you Face Deportation

It can be daunting to get a notice that you are currently facing deportation. Maybe your visa has expired, or the reasons for your Visa are no longer valid. No matter what your situation is, there is always help – you just have to seek out the attention of an immigration attorney. Immigration attorneys are very knowledgeable in the field and will have several strategies in mind to help you fight your deportation. Some of these strategies are explained in further detail below.

Strategies to Win Your Case 

Oftentimes, you can reverse your deportation with the help of a skilled attorney. Here are some of the actions your attorney may take on your behalf.

  • Filing papers for legalization – If you have not yet done this, or have filled out the papers incorrectly resulting in your denial, your immigration attorney can help you. They will ensure that your papers are filled out correctly and will submit or resubmit them for consideration. Most of the time, when the paperwork is filled out correctly and a valid reason is presented, you will be able to remain in the US.
  • Cancelling the Deportation Order – Your Immigration attorney will be able to work with you to try to get your deportation order canceled. If you have lived in the US for quite some time – usually a period of 5-7 years – and you are an upstanding citizen who has never been convicted of an aggravated felony, you have a good employment history and even own property; these are all positive factors that may help you receive a cancelation.
  • Apply for Temporary Protection – Every person deserves the opportunity to present their case – even if they are facing deportation. A temporary protection order will allow your immigration attorney to prepare an adequate case for you. The temporary protection will delay your deportation until your attorneys can prepare your case and present it in front of the Department of Immigration. In order to successfully represent you, the attorney will need to know about your life in the US.
  • Representation – Representing you is the biggest task that your attorney will take on. It will be their responsibility to ensure that they do everything possible – including filing forms, offering solutions and even advising you whether voluntary deportation is desired.
  • Voluntary Deportation –    Sometimes, when all other solutions are inadequate, your immigration attorney may suggest a voluntary removal so that you can avoid the deportation order. This will allow you to come back into the country at a later date, legally.

To determine which one of these strategies is right for you, it is necessary to consult your own attorney. They will take the time to get to know you and your unique situation in order to represent you best. If the attorney you hire is unwilling to get to know you, it is best to look elsewhere.
