Immigrants Make America Great
One of the most stressful and anxiety-ridden situations an immigrant can go through is receiving a notice to appear before an immigration court for deportation and removal proceedings. The outcome of such a hearing can be life-altering. Being in the United States is a dream come true for most immigrants, but with a forced removal, it can turn into a nightmare—taking you away from your loved ones and the life you worked hard to build.
If you are in danger of being deported, an experienced deportation attorney can assist you with a cancellation of removal to keep you in the country. The Law Office Of Hari Heerekar has a highly qualified and experienced team who can defend you against removal or find other options in case of a denial. As a former immigrant, attorney Heerekar knows the stakes are high and has the knowledge and perspective on both sides as a lawyer and former judge to help you find relief. We have successfully defended and protected hundreds of immigrant clients facing deportation and can do the same for you.
Reasons You Can Be Subject to Deportation
Often, an immigrant becomes targeted for removal by either being detained or receiving a notice to appear before an immigration court. This notice details the grounds for removal, where your hearing will be, and when it will be held. You must show up for the hearing regardless of whether you have hired an attorney or not.
You can end up facing deportation and removal proceedings for a number of different reasons, including:
- Being an undocumented immigrant
- Having an expired visa
- Applying for a green card on a nonimmigrant visa
- Criminal convictions
- Denied asylum application
- Captured in an ice raid
By hiring a knowledgeable deportation attorney, you can have someone in your corner who will defend your rights and fight for you to remain in the United States. Some of the options that attorney Heerekar can explore (if applicable) include: adjustments of status, seeking asylum, U Visa, Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), or cancellation of removal.
Cancellation of Removal Defense
The cancellation of removal is an immigration benefit designed to protect lawful permanent residents facing deportation with the potential of being granted permanent residence. This method of relief can only be used once provided you meet certain requirements.
You can be eligible for cancellation of removal if you:
- Have had permanent resident status in the United States for 5 years or more
- Are a non-permanent resident that has lived in the United States for 10 years or more
- Have a spouse, parent, or child who is a U.S. citizen or permanent resident
- Can demonstrate that your deportation will cause extreme hardship to the U.S. citizen or permanent resident relative.
- Are of good moral character and haven’t been convicted of any crimes
Even if you meet the mentioned requirements, approval isn’t a guarantee since it is left entirely at the discretion of the judge who handles your case. For this reason, it is crucial that you hire a knowledgeable Los Angeles deportation lawyer with experience handling cancellation of removal applications.
