Deportation And Its Defenses

Never go into a Courtroom Alone!

Deportation, now known as removal, occurs for a number of reasons. First, if you are present in the United States illegally, you can be placed in removal proceedings and then removed from the country. This can happen anytime you are present without status. Second, if you are a permanent resident (green card holder) you can also be placed in removal proceedings if you meet certain requirements.

Removability Grounds

The grounds of removability for residents can be found in the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952, §237(a)(1). There are several non-criminal grounds for removability, including failure to report a change of address, committing marriage or document fraud, or smuggling another alien into the country.

The criminal grounds for removability include: committing a crime of moral turpitude, committing an aggravated felony, committing a crime involving controlled substances, firearms or domestic violence. There is no set definition of a crime of moral turpitude or an aggravated felony; therefore it is important that you have an immigration attorney involved in your case to ensure that you receive the best outcome available to you. An immigrant may also be removed if they are a security threat to the country.

If you are deemed removable by the government, they will issue a Notice to Appear and a court hearing will be scheduled for you. If you have committed a crime, you may be arrested and detained throughout the court proceedings. If an immigration judge decides that you should be removed from the country, you will be deported to your country of residence.

There are many defenses available to individuals who are placed in removal proceedings. What defenses are available to you will depend on the specifics of your case. It is important for you to discuss any criminal issues with your attorney honestly. Your attorney can only determine how to proceed with your case if you tell him or her everything about your criminal and immigration history.

Beyond Expectations

My husband had never been in any legal trouble before and we didn’t know what to do or what the process was. Attorney Kaehne was very upfront and willing to explain every step of the way. My husband can be very skeptical when it comes to trusting people with his best interest, but Attorney Kaehne always remained professional and helpful. My husband was facing the possibility of years in prison and Attorney Kaehne was able to get the matter dismissed. He will always be our first choice!

The Outcome was Far Better than I Expected

Attorney Kaehne always communicated with me on what was going on and his plans for future court appearances. The outcome of the case was far more better than I expected and am really pleased that Chad did what he did to get this issue resolved.
