Common Grounds for Removal
- Criminal Conviction: Non-citizens who are convicted of a crime may have their permanent residency removed and be prohibited from obtaining a green card.
- Failing to Abide by Visa Rules: Situations such as working while on a tourist visa, overstaying your visa, or another violation, you may be removed and possibly banned from entering the U.S. for a specified period of time.
- Marriage fraud: Committing marriage fraud or helping to smuggle unlawful immigrants into the country are deportable offenses.
- Receiving government assistance: When someone receives a green card, they must be able to prove that they do not have to rely on government assistance. If a person is receiving public assistance within five years of entry, they may be deported.
What Happens in a Removal Proceeding
Removal cases begin when a person receives a Notice to Appear letter from the U.S. government that requires you to appear in front of a judge. The letter will include a hearing date and location. You are required to appear or you will face immediate removal.
During the hearing, you will respond to the allegations against you. The government must provide evidence to prove the charges against you, and you and your attorney can present your defense.
At the end of the hearings (there may be multiple), the judge will decide on whether you will be removed or granted relief from removal.
It is important that you are represented by a skilled attorney who can work with you throughout the process. We can explain the process and guide you through the process.
