Fight Deportation in New York

Have you received a notice of removal (deportation) from the United States? This can be an incredibly stressful situation to go through, but know that you do have legal options. The New York immigration attorneys at Musa-Obregon Law PC provide deportation defense representation so you can fight to stay in the United States.

There are two major ways to stay in the U.S. after you receive notice of removal:

  • Present the argument in court that you are not removable as charged, OR
  • Petition for "relief from removal"

In order to be deported from this country, you must have committed a deportable offense. According to 8 USC § 1227, there are seven categories of deportable offenses. Those include:

  1. The alien was inadmissible at the time of their entrance to the U.S.
  2. They have been convicted of a criminal offense
  3. They failed to register their residency through the necessary routes and/or presented fraudulent immigration documents
  4. The alien presents a security threat to the United States
  5. The alien, within five years after entry to the U.S., has become a public charge
  6. The alien unlawfully voted
  7. Some domestic violence related incidents, unless the alien can be proven to have been the victim and not the primary perpetrator

If your removal order contains one or more of the aforementioned categories, you may be able to contest in court that these accusations are not accurate.

An individual who is facing deportation/removal from the United States might also be able to request a relief from removal. An immigration lawyer can evaluate your case and present you with the types of relief from removal you might qualify for. There are various types of relief, including asylum, adjustment of status through registry or cancellation under the VAWA.

If you or someone you love is facing the possibility of deportation and you need a lawyer, contact Musa-Obregon Law PC. Our skilled New York immigration attorneys can fight for you so that you can stay in the United States. To learn more about how our firm is prepared to help you, call today.
