Lake Station Deportation Defense Lawyer

Immigrants facing deportation still have rights under the law. You can fight the grounds on which the Department of Homeland Security has authorized the deportation. In order for the government to legally deport a lawful resident, they must show cause. In this case, cause means a valid legal reason for requesting a deportation.

The first part of the process involves an NTA (notice to appear). The NTA will outline the reason for the deportation and a court date. At this point, you should contact a skilled Lake Station deportation defense lawyer who has successfully defended immigrants at deportation hearings before.

Kriezelman Burton & Associates offers compassionate advocacy to legal immigrants facing deportation. Our attorneys have successfully blocked deportation orders. If you have been served with an NTA, give us a call or talk to us online in order to begin the process of defending yourself.

Grounds for Deportation in the U.S.

The majority of those who receive NTAs have overstayed their visa. In this case, you will have to apply for an extension or apply for legal permanent resident status.

In other cases, the government must provide the court with legal grounds to deport you. Legal grounds can be divided into three distinct categories. These are:

  • Application fraud. An immigrant who either lies on their application or conceals information that the government would deem important put their immigration status in jeopardy. The government must be able to show exactly where the immigrant lied or what important information was concealed. In some cases, the information concealed is not all that important or the government cannot provide evidence that the immigrant lied. Your attorney’s job is to force the government to prove their case.
  • Aggravated felonies. Aggravated felonies include specific kinds of violent crimes. Although there is no specific definition of what kind of felony rises to the standard of “aggravated” case law and precedence is used to determine if a specific crime is deportable. Your attorney’s job is to show that your crime does not rise to the standard of a deportable offense.
  • Crimes of moral turpitude. Crimes of moral turpitude include crimes against basic morality. Drug crimes and prostitution are key examples of crimes of moral turpitude. In addition, if an immigrant is affiliated with a criminal, terrorist, or political dissident organization, they can be charged with moral turpitude. Your immigration attorney can defend you from these charges.
