Deportation & Removal Options

IMMIGRATION BOND

If you have been detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) there is a short window of opportunity to request a bond. The first bond hearing is usually the most important. You may be able to ask the Court for an opportunity to find a lawyer prior to your bond hearing. 

NOTICE TO APPEAR (NTA)

 

Have you received a NTA? The Department of Homeland Security is alleging that you are removable from the United States, meaning that you are not authorized to be here. 

 

REQUESTING ALL AVAILABLE RELIEF FROM REMOVAL

If you are in a removal hearing, you should request all relief available to you, such as:

Hardship Waiver: If you have been charged with certain crimes, or if you are unlawfully present in the United States, then this may be an option for you. 

Cancellation of Removal: This may be an option if you are a permanent resident or non-permanent resident. Some people think of this at the 10 year clock for 'illegal residents'. For non-permanent residents, you must show that you have been continuously present for ten years prior to the date you apply for cancellation, that you have a 'qualifying relative' who would face exceptional and extremely unusual hardship. This is always an option that should be evaluated with a qualified immigration attorney. 

 

Asylum: If you fear returning to your home country for fear of persecution, you may qualify for asylum. The Immigration Judge will hear your case directly.  

STAY OF REMOVAL

If you have have an order of removal against you, this option allows you to stay or 'suspend' your removal order, meaning you can temporarily stay in the United States for additional time.
