Defending Immigrants' Rights

Houston Deportation Attorney

Stopping REmoval Proceedings in Texas

There are a few options when facing deportation. Both green card holders and non-permanent residents can seek a cancellation of removal, however, there are a number of requirements that must be met.

For permanent residents, this includes having lived in the U.S. for at least seven years, having no felony convictions, and having been a lawful resident for five years or longer.

Temporary resident immigrants, on the other hand, can seek a stay by having no deportable convictions on their record, demonstrating an extreme hardship that would result for their deportation, and having lived in the U.S. for 10 years or longer.

In addition, you may put a stop to deportation with asylum protection, if you have reason to believe you will be persecuted in your home country, or through an Adjustment of Status if you have a visa, permanent resident status, and an employer or family member who petitions the immigration judge.

What Are Removal Proceedings?

Deportation proceedings start if you receive a Notice to Appear (NTA) from Immigraion and Customs Enforcement (ICE). If you receive one, it means that ICE believes you have entered the U.S. illegally or that they believe you are in the U.S. without authorization.

How to Stop Removal Proceedings

There are many ways to defend against deportation. Below are just some ways to prevent or stop removal proceedings in Texas.

  • You were falsely served with an Notice to Appear. If the notice was sent to the wrong address or sent to your attorney instead of directly to you, you may have a case.
  • You are not deportable. If you are a U.S. citizen, you may not be removed. In the case that you have a criminal record, understand that not all crimes are deportable. Go over your options with a deportation defense lawyer.
  • You are in the middle of adjusting your immigration status. In some cases, immigrants may forget to extend their papers (such as a student visa), however, if you entered the U.S. lawfully, you may be able to adjust your status to being "lawfully present".
  • Are you facing persecution in your home country? Asylum and withholding of removal are options for you.
  • Cancellation of removal and adjustment of status is available for both non-permanent residents, permanent residents, and battered spouses/children. Meet with a deportation attorney in Houston to understand the specific qualifications for this.

Motion to Reconsider, reopen, or BIA APPEAL?

If you have gone through the deportation process and the immigration judge has given a final decision on your case, you still have a chance depending on your situation! There are ways to appeal the deportation order.

What is Motion to Reconsider?

You have 30 days from the date of your deportation order to file a motion to reconsider. If you believe that the judge misinterpreted the law or there have been new developments in a law, you may file a motion to reconsider. With this option, you must file a motion that details how the judge interpreted the law incorrectly and how their decision was incorrect based on the evidence of the case.

Depending on your situation, a motion to reconsider may not be the best route over a motion to reopen or a BIA (Board of Immigration Appeals) appeal. Speak with a skilled immigration lawyer before making this decision!
