Highland Deportation Defense Lawyer

If you have received a notice to appear (NTA) by the Department of Homeland Security, you are likely pretty scared. An NTA is the first step in the process of deporting a lawful immigrant on a green card. On the NTA, you will find out why the government thinks that you should be deported.

The claim is not, however, enough to legally deport you. You do have the right to fight the deportation order. To do this, you will need the aid of an experienced deportation defense attorney.

The Highland immigration attorneys at Kriezelman Burton & Associates defend legal residents from deportation orders. With decades of experience behind us, we can help you fight the government’s charges that you should be deported. Give us a call or talk to us online to set up an appointment.

Grounds for Deportation in the U.S.

An immigrant can legally be deported when their visa is expired. In other cases, the government must be able to give a valid legal reason for wanting to deport the immigrant or the immigration court will prevent the state from issuing the order. These reasons can be broken up into three categories:

  • Fraudulent information provided to the government. During the application process to receive a visa from the U.S. government, any information you provide must be truthful. If the government believes that you falsified information on your visa application, they may issue an NTA. The government has the burden of proving where you lied on your application. Your attorney’s job is to force the government to satisfy that burden.
  • You committed an aggravated felony. There is no specific legal definition of the term “aggravated felony.” The decision as to whether or not a specific crime rises to the standard of an aggravated felony will depend on prior cases involving deportation orders. Your attorney’s job is to show that, if you have committed a crime, your crime does not rise to the standard of an aggravated felony.
  • You committed a crime of moral turpitude. Crimes of moral turpitude are either crimes associated with vices such as prostitution and drug crimes or they are political crimes. For instance, an allegation can be levied against an immigrant affiliated with a criminal enterprise or a political faction whose aim is to disrupt or overthrow the U.S. government.
