OPPORTUNITIES AND STRATEGIES FOR DEFENSE

Diaspora Law can use several strategies to defend against deportation and bring your loved one home.

Cancellation of Removal for a Non-Legal Permanent Resident, or an EOIR-42B – An immigrant in removal proceedings can become a lawful permanent resident, and have their proceedings canceled if they meet three criteria.

(1) The individual has been physically present in the U.S. for at least 10 years before their Immigration Court proceedings began;

(2) The individual has been of good moral character for 10 years; and

(3) That a citizen of the United States or legal permanent resident child, spouse, or parent will suffer extreme and exceptionally unusual hardship if the individual is removed from the United States

Adjustment of Status, or AOS– An application for permanent residency based on an approved immigrant visa, whether family or employment based, may be a viable defense against deportation.

Removal of Conditional Residence (Form I-751) – If a conditional permanent resident does not timely file a Form I-751 to remove the condition on their residence, or it is denied, they may be subject to removal proceedings. A renewed petition can be a tool for convincing a judge to prevent a judge from removing your loved one. We can assist with this petition.

Criminal and Non-Criminal Waivers – You may not be deportable even if you have a criminal past. Criminal waivers – such as 212(c), 212(h) and EOIR-42A Cancellation of Removal for Legal Permanent Residents to many permanent residents.

Non-citizens can often obtain different Visas – such as a U visa, green card or an employment visa with a waiver for past “bad acts” that might make someone “inadmissible.” We can help prepare these sensitive defenses and the necessary paperwork. This includes the I-601A waiver that may require to recalendar or terminate deportation proceeding from a Motion for Administrative Closure.

Motions To The Court – Diaspora Law always works with the government and their attorneys to ensure the best possible result for our clients. Often requesting a government attorney to use their prosecutorial discretion to close or terminate removal proceedings is sufficient. When a case is closed, we can even help to secure work authorization for the former detainee.

When prosecutorial discretion is unavailable, several motions are nonetheless. Where the charges on a Notice to Appear are incorrect a Motion to Terminate can end proceedings smoothly. Where a client has been detained by ICE or in violation of constitutional due process a Motion to Suppress damaging evidence can terminate proceedings as well.

Exceptions to Deportation – Many non-citizens have protections under United States law if they fit into one of several protected groups, you have likely heard of many of the laws that provide these protections.

DACA, or Deferred Action for Certain Childhood Arrivals is available for children who were brought to the United States, have attended school in the United States and have not left the United States for an extended period.

TPS, or Temporary Protected Status is available for people from countries that the United States has deemed unsafe to return. Citizens from El Salvador, Honduras or Venezuela, for example, have had TPS status.

NACARA, or the Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act can assist in preventing the deportation of certain people, and their dependents, if the are nationals from Cuba, Guatemala, Nicaragua, El Salvador or from a former Soviet bloc country.

Asylum is available for people who have been persecuted against or fear they will suffer from persecution because they are of a race, religion, nationality, or a member of a particular social group (being homosexual for instance), or due to political opinion. These requirements can be complicated, and we can help prepare your defense.

VAWA, or the Violence Against Women Act is available for victims of abuse or crime, most often domestic violence from a legal permanent resident or aUnited States citizen, to terminate deportation proceedings for themselves and their dependents. Where an abuser is not a legal permanent resident or United States citizen, a U Visa may be available for the victim and dependents instead.

Voluntary Departure – Where an individual no longer wishes to remain in the United States or would like to return on a legitimate visa, later on, voluntary departure may be the best option, rather than continue through Immigration Court.

OPPORTUNITIES AND STRATEGIES FOR DEFENSE

Diaspora Law can use several strategies to defend against deportation and bring your loved one home.

Cancellation of Removal for a Non-Legal Permanent Resident, or an EOIR-42B – An immigrant in removal proceedings can become a lawful permanent resident, and have their proceedings canceled if they meet three criteria.

(1) The individual has been physically present in the U.S. for at least 10 years before their Immigration Court proceedings began;

(2) The individual has been of good moral character for 10 years; and

(3) That a citizen of the United States or legal permanent resident child, spouse, or parent will suffer extreme and exceptionally unusual hardship if the individual is removed from the United States

Adjustment of Status, or AOS– An application for permanent residency based on an approved immigrant visa, whether family or employment based, may be a viable defense against deportation.

Removal of Conditional Residence (Form I-751) – If a conditional permanent resident does not timely file a Form I-751 to remove the condition on their residence, or it is denied, they may be subject to removal proceedings. A renewed petition can be a tool for convincing a judge to prevent a judge from removing your loved one. We can assist with this petition.

Criminal and Non-Criminal Waivers – You may not be deportable even if you have a criminal past. Criminal waivers – such as 212(c), 212(h) and EOIR-42A Cancellation of Removal for Legal Permanent Residents to many permanent residents.

Non-citizens can often obtain different Visas – such as a U visa, green card or an employment visa with a waiver for past “bad acts” that might make someone “inadmissible.” We can help prepare these sensitive defenses and the necessary paperwork. This includes the I-601A waiver that may require to recalendar or terminate deportation proceeding from a Motion for Administrative Closure.

Motions To The Court – Diaspora Law always works with the government and their attorneys to ensure the best possible result for our clients. Often requesting a government attorney to use their prosecutorial discretion to close or terminate removal proceedings is sufficient. When a case is closed, we can even help to secure work authorization for the former detainee.

When prosecutorial discretion is unavailable, several motions are nonetheless. Where the charges on a Notice to Appear are incorrect a Motion to Terminate can end proceedings smoothly. Where a client has been detained by ICE or in violation of constitutional due process a Motion to Suppress damaging evidence can terminate proceedings as well.

Exceptions to Deportation – Many non-citizens have protections under United States law if they fit into one of several protected groups, you have likely heard of many of the laws that provide these protections.

DACA, or Deferred Action for Certain Childhood Arrivals is available for children who were brought to the United States, have attended school in the United States and have not left the United States for an extended period.

TPS, or Temporary Protected Status is available for people from countries that the United States has deemed unsafe to return. Citizens from El Salvador, Honduras or Venezuela, for example, have had TPS status.

NACARA, or the Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act can assist in preventing the deportation of certain people, and their dependents, if the are nationals from Cuba, Guatemala, Nicaragua, El Salvador or from a former Soviet bloc country.

Asylum is available for people who have been persecuted against or fear they will suffer from persecution because they are of a race, religion, nationality, or a member of a particular social group (being homosexual for instance), or due to political opinion. These requirements can be complicated, and we can help prepare your defense.

VAWA, or the Violence Against Women Act is available for victims of abuse or crime, most often domestic violence from a legal permanent resident or aUnited States citizen, to terminate deportation proceedings for themselves and their dependents. Where an abuser is not a legal permanent resident or United States citizen, a U Visa may be available for the victim and dependents instead.

Voluntary Departure – Where an individual no longer wishes to remain in the United States or would like to return on a legitimate visa, later on, voluntary departure may be the best option, rather than continue through Immigration Court.
