Immigration Attorney

If you are facing potential deportation, such as criminal deportation, it is vital you contact a knowledgeable and proven Queens immigration lawyer immediately. The sooner you have qualified legal counsel addressing your case, the better your chances of a positive outcome.

Deportation proceedings are very involved and there are many aspects of the situation that require great attention to detail and precise actions. At our NYC law firm, we handle all types of deportation proceedings for our clients.

We represent individuals throughout Queens, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Manhattan, Rockland County and Westchester County.

How We Fight Deportation in New York City

To build up a case, the officials at the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) must ensure that the individual’s situation meets all of the criteria for deportation. The burden of proof depends on a very rigid set of regulations and guidelines, which means that it can often be difficult for each case to meet the requirements. What we at Musa-Obregon & Associates can do as your defense attorneys is to discover any holes or weaknesses in their case. We can then base our counter argument on these points.

The exact steps we take to handle a client's case will depend on the particular circumstances as well as the reason for the threatened deportation, which can arise due to the following:

  • The commission of particular criminal acts that are considered deportable offenses.
  • Being declared guilty of marriage fraud for the purposes of obtaining an immigrant visa.
  • Violations of immigration law, including conditions of entry or violation of non-immigrant status.
  • Relinquishing permanent resident status, even if you did not intend to do so.

One of the reasons why some people face removal occurs because they have been accused of committing a serious crime, such as a sex crime or a drug crime. Alternatively, perhaps they have allegedly entered the U.S. under illegal circumstances. It is up to the government to determine where the offense occurred, and this is often a painstakingly lengthy process. However, you may be to stop the removal proceedings with the help of our New York City and Queens immigration lawyers investigating your case. We may be able to halt the proceedings and help you qualify for an “adjustment of status.”

You may be able to qualify for permanent residency under these circumstances:

  • You are the spouse or family member of a U.S. citizen
  • You are seeking asylum in the U.S. or are a refugee
  • You have an active petition by a U.S. employer or are looking to invest in a U.S.-based venture
  • You are participating in a human rights organization

The threat of being forced to leave the country you have made your home, along with your relationships, job, and lifestyle, can be incredibly overwhelming.
