Deportation and Removal Defense

Deportation and removal proceedings can be very overwhelming and scary. There are many reasons an individual may be placed in proceedings, from entering the United States unlawfully, overstaying a visa, or based on criminal or fraud charges. All persons in proceedings have a right to have an attorney represent them. Depending on your individual circumstances, it may be important to challenge the charges that the government files against you. For this reason, we strongly encourage individuals to consult with an experienced immigration attorney as soon as possible if placed in immigration proceedings to determine if you are removable and if so whether there is any form of relief that will permit you to remain in the United States.

The attorneys at HaleyNelson & Heilbrun, LLP, can analyze your individual situation and advise you of the best way to resolve the problem. Our attorneys represent individuals in removal proceedings across the country in all types of cases before the Immigration Court, including bond hearings, cancellation of removal/deportation remedies (for lawful permanent residents and non-residents), waivers for criminal convictions, waivers for fraud or misrepresentations, contested removal hearings, motions to suppress evidence, motions to terminate, adjustment of status, asylum, withholding of removal, protection under the United Nations Convention Against Torture, humanitarian relief, relief under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), abandonment of residency, claims of United States citizenship, family reunification, NACARA, and temporary protected status (TPS). Because there are numerous forms of relief from removal available and because the eligibility requirements for each are highly fact specific, it is necessary to take the time and discuss the specifics of your case with an experienced immigration attorney. Please contact our office to schedule a consultation with one of our attorneys.
