Los Angeles Deportation Lawyers
Every year thousands of families are torn apart because of removal, also referred to as deportation, proceedings. The United States government may have started removal proceedings against you or a loved one because:
- You entered the United States illegally
- Your visa status has expired; for example, you were in the U.S. on a nonimmigrant work visa and your employment is terminated or you are in the United States on a K visa and you get divorced or your engagement is broken
- You have a criminal conviction

Deportation Lawyer in Los Angeles
At the Law Offices of Gita B. Kapur in Los Angeles, California, I will investigate every angle to find solutions to your immigration deportation problems. We may be able to fight immigration removal by:
- Asylum: If you can show well-founded fear of persecution in your country of origin based on your race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group or political opinion, then you may be able to prevent deportation by applying for asylum.
- Waivers: If you have criminal convictions, it is more difficult to get legal status through a family member. You may be eligible to ask for a waiver (or pardon) for your crimes. There are several types of waivers, but the most common are the 212(h) waiver and 212(c) waiver.
- Temporary protected status for victims of crimes: The Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act of 2000 created two new nonimmigrant visas for non-citizen victims of crimes, the T-visa and the U-visa. Both visas are designed to provide immigration status to noncitizens who are assisting or are willing to assist the U.S. authorities investigating crimes.
- Adjustment of Status: If you entered the U.S. with a nonimmigrant visa (tourist visa, fiancé visa, student visa, H1B, J1, etc.) or you are covered under 245(i) you may be able to obtain lawful permanent resident status.
- Cancellation of removal (42B) cases: This form of relief is for people who have been residing in the USA for at least 10 years, have good moral character, have not been convicted of certain exclusion crimes, and have qualifying relatives that would suffer exceptional and extreme unusual hardship if they would have to leave and go back to their native country.
- NACARA: This is for people who immigrated from Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua and other qualifying countries. They would be eligible for this relief if they filed an asylum application before December 31, 1991, or registered for ABC benefits prior to October 31, 1991 (if Salvadoran) or prior to December 31, 1991 (if Guatemalan), have good moral character and have been physically present in the country good for at least the 7 years prior to the adjudication of the application. Also, applicants for NACARA need to show hardship to you or your family if they leave.
- Temporary protected status (TPS): This is an immigration status for foreign nationals residing in the United States whose home countries are temporarily unsafe or overly dangerous due to political instability, warfare or natural disasters.
