There are thousands upon thousands of people who are living in the United States without permission. Some overstayed their visas. Others came when they were children and never had the opportunity to choose how they arrived to the U.S.
It is very important that you understand what deportation can mean for yourself and your family. If you’re facing deportation, you should have the opportunity to defend yourself. Many good people are deported, but with a good deportation defense, you can fight to stay in the country.
Why would you be deported from the U.S.?
There are a few different reasons why people are deported from the United States. Some possible reasons include:
- Entering the United States illegally
- Overstaying on an expired visa
- Arriving in the United States on a K visa but not getting married
- Being convicted of a crime
The good news is that there are ways to avoid deportation. Your attorney will help you look into options such as:
- An adjustment of status
- The cancellation of 42B cases
- Temporary protected status as a victim of a crime
- Temporary protected status due to unrest, natural disasters or warfare in a home country
Your attorney will need to look into the specifics of your case to determine which of these methods may be best for helping you stay in the country. Make sure you reach out early in the case, because deportation cases are complex, and the goal is to protect you and keep you in the U.S. with your family.
