US Immigration Court Process
With more than 30 years of experience focusing on immigration exclusively, we can help you with a number of important immigration matters, including:
- Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals: Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is a process for avoiding removal and deportation and obtaining work authorization. Those who are in the country illegally, arrived before they turned 15 years old, arrived before June 15, 2007 and meet other requirements can obtain DACA, which would prevent them from being removed and deported.
- Removal and deportation: Removal is the process by which noncitizens are deemed ineligible to remain in the country and are deported. This can happen as a result of being in the country illegally or convictions of certain crimes.
- Immigration consequences of criminal convictions: Unless you have been through the naturalization process and become a United States citizen, criminal convictions can alter your status and make you removable or deportable. It is important to understand the immigration consequences of a criminal conviction.
- Motions to reopen and appeals: A motion to reopen provides an option to have an unfavorable immigration decision reversed, usually based on facts previously unavailable (new facts) that could alter the decision.
- Administrative appeals and federal litigation: When labor certifications, visa, and change of status applications are denied, an appeal could be an option to keep alive the possibility of obtaining your immigration goals.
- Asylum, TPS, VAWA and other forms of humanitarian relief: There are a number of important options, depending on the circumstances, for people who are in the United States fleeing persecution from their home countries.
