Finding out you or a loved one is at risk of deportation is a frightening moment. Perhaps you received a deportation notice in the mail or criminal charges are an issue.

At Banker’s Hill Law Firm, A.P.C., our immigration law attorneys provide strong deportation defense representation, understanding our clients’ lives are on the line.
Reasons for Deportation
Under federal U.S. immigration laws, there are several reasons immigrants may be deported back to their country of origin. The most obvious reason is that the immigrant didn’t have a right to be in the United States in the first place, having entered the country illegally or having stayed beyond the time allowed by his or her visa. But there are other reasons an immigrant with a valid temporary or permanent right to live in the United States may be deported. These include:
- Failure to obey the terms of your visa or otherwise maintain your status, such as by working if you are a tourist
- Failure to advise U.S. Customs and Immigration Services (USCIS) of a change of address.
- Being charged and convicted of a crime
- Violation of immigration laws, such as helping to smuggle other aliens into the United States
- Receiving public assistance within five years after the date of entry
Successful Defenses to Deportation
Just as there are several reasons an immigrant may be deported, there are many deportation defenses available depending on the facts and circumstances of your case. So, don’t lose hope if you’ve received a notice of removal. You may be able to show the U.S. government was incorrect to put you in removal proceedings, and, so long as you do not concede (agree with) the charges of removability against you, it remains the government’s responsibility to present enough evidence that you should be deported.
Even if the government meets its burden and shows you’re subject to deportation as charged, you can still apply for relief from removal. Our immigration law attorneys can determine what types of removal relief may be available to you, ranging from adjustment of status to asylum to deferred action. You may also qualify for relief if you have lived in the U.S. for 10 years or more, or if your deportation may cause harm to you or a qualifying relative.
