AVOIDING DEPORTATION AFTER CRIMINAL CHARGES

AVOIDING DEPORTATION AFTER CRIMINAL CHARGES

Deportation of Immigrants

If you have been charged or convicted of a criminal offense in the U.S., it is possible that you may be deported. This will depend upon the nature of the crime. It’s imperative to contact a United States deportation attorney promptly as soon as you’ve been charged. Your deportation attorney will get to work filing a waiver on your behalf, which may allow you to remain in the U.S. Under deportation law, you must meet certain requirements to be eligible for a waiver.

As your deportation attorney can explain to you, you must have lived in the U.S. for at least seven years, continuously. The authorities must not consider you a threat to national security. Your eligibility also depends upon not having an aggravated felony conviction on your record. In addition to filing the paperwork to request a waiver on your behalf, your deportation attorney may be able to request a cancellation or suspension of removal, which can prevent you from being deported.
