Relief from Removal Proceedings
Let Our Wakefield Immigration Lawyer Fights for Your Behalf
Removal proceedings can be an intimidating experience since there is a
lot on the line. Removal from the country can be traumatizing for an individual,
a family, and their community. If you have a dedicated Wakefield immigration
attorney by your side, you can increase the likelihood of a successful outcome.
Defenses Against Removal
Attorney Giuseppina A. DiSisto understands what is at stake and how devastating
removal may be for you and your family. There are many reasons a person
may face removal. If you entered the country illegally or have been convicted
of a crime, removal or deportation may be a real possibility.
A lawyer can help block that removal based on several criteria, such as:
- You fear persecution and successfully seek asylum
- There are no criminal charges in your background
- You are a victim of domestic violence
- You already have family in the United States
Our lawyer invests the time needed to effectively help you stay in the
country and will dedicate the resources needed to ensure you are treated
fairly and with respect as the process unfolds.
There are three different possible favorable outcomes at a relief from
removal proceeding. These include:
- A cancelation of the removal
- An adjustment to your status
- Being granted asylum
How to Pursue a Cancellation of Removal
Certain circumstances can lead to a cancellation of the removal. If you
have been a permanent resident for at least five years, you can fight
to obtain a cancellation. Cancellation may be possible if you have not
been convicted of a felony or if you have been in the United States for
at least seven years.
Even if you don’t have a green card, you may still be able to fight
for relief from removal based on several criteria, such as:
- If you are in good moral standing in the community
- If you have lived in the U.S. for 10 years
- If you can show hardship for your family if you are deported
If an adjustment is obtained, you can be classified as a lawful permanent
resident. Asylum can also be proven and result in a relief from removal.
Notice to Appear
If you have been issued a Notice to Appear, you have no choice but to appear
and be prepared for the outcome. You have the right to have an attorney
present and to explain the consequences if you fail to appear.
