What can be done to stop my removal proceedings?

If you were found to be in the United States illegally, or are facing deportation as a penalty of a criminal conviction, a Tampa deportation defense attorney from our firm may be able to fight to have the proceedings dropped.

There are a number of strategies we employ to protect our clients from removal, which include:

  • Waivers – A waiver may be granted if you are able to prove that your removal would cause extreme hardship to you or your close relatives.
  • Adjustment of Status – If you are the spouse, widow, parent, or child of a U.S. citizen, you may be able to apply to the Immigration Judge to have your status adjusted to lawful permanent residency.
  • Asylum – If you left your home country because of persecution or fear of persecution, you may be able to apply for asylum.
  • Cancellation of Removal for Permanent Residents – If you have been a lawful permanent resident for at least five years, you may be able to apply if you meet the necessary requirements.
  • Cancellation of Removal for Non-Permanent Residents – You may be able to request this type of Cancellation if you have lived in the United States for the last ten years and fulfill the qualifying criteria.
