If you are in Immigration Removal or Deportation Proceedings, have been issued a Notice to Appear or Notice of Hearing to appear at Immigration Court, or if an Immigration Judge has issued a deportation order against you - contact an immigration lawyer at IISLG to discuss your options for relief. Here are some relief options that may be available for you:
A waiver of removability may be available if you can establish that removal from the United States would cause hardship to you or to one of your close family members. Additionally, if you are a lawful permanent residents who has lived in the United States for a long period of time, you may be eligible for a waiver even if none of your relatives live in the United States.
LPR Cancellation of Removal
If you are a LPR, you may be eligible for cancellation of removal if:
Non-LPR Cancellation of Removal
If you are a not an LPR, you may be eligible for cancellation of removal if:
Adjustment of Status
If you are a deportable alien who is the parent, spouse, widow or child of a U.S. citizen, you may be eligible to adjust your status to that of a lawful permanent resident. If you obtained conditional permanent residence based upon marriage to a U.S. citizen or the marriage of your alien parent, to a U.S. citizen, your legal status may be terminated if you fail to meet certain requirements. However, once you are placed in removal or deportation proceedings, you may renew your applications for permanent residence before an Immigration Judge.
Legalization and Registry
If you are present in the United States and you qualify for legalization or “amnesty”, you have attained the legal right to remain in the United States. If you have resided continuously in the U.S. since prior to January 1, 1972, you may be eligible for “registry” and therefore for legal permanent residence. To be eligible for registry, you must be a person of good moral character who is not deportable on certain aggravated grounds and who is not ineligible for citizenship.
If there is no form of relief available for you to prevent your deportation, you may be eligible for voluntary departure. This could allow you to avoid future issues with re-entry to the US that might be imposed if you are deported. It is important to realize that if you do not depart within the given time the consequences are harsh. There are grounds of eligibility for this option. There are time limits and restrictions on when and how this is available. The immigration lawyers at IISLG can review and discuss how and when this may be an option for relief.
Asylum, Withholding of Removal and the Convention Against Torture
You cannot be removed if you can establish that you fear returning to your home country. Goto our page on "Asylum" in this menu for more information about the requirements for eligibility for asylum.
