Those facing deportation have a frightening road ahead of them. Over the past decade, the U.S. government has made it easier to deport lawful immigrants for petty crimes. In addition, it has ramped up efforts to deport those who have stayed beyond the terms of their visa.

Navigating the U.S. justice system is no simple task, even for those of us who have been practitioners for many years. The laws are constantly changing, as are administration policies on key matters. During the Obama presidency, the U.S. deported more legal residents for petty crimes than ever before. Simple drug possession crimes became a reason to deport those who were otherwise in good standing with their community and the government. This policy has not changed during the Trump presidency. Immigrants can face deportation for any of a number of small offenses.
For that reason, it is often best for those who believe their residency status is threatened to engage a Portage immigration lawyer early in the process. We can help minimize the potential threat to your residency status.
The U.S. government needs to provide the court with cause to deport a legal resident. Causes can include:
The first part of the process usually involves the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issuing a notice to appear. The notice to appear will outline what the foreign national has done to warrant deportation. A hearing will be scheduled during which both an attorney for the DHS and an attorney representing the immigrant can offer arguments in support of their case. In the end, the judge will render a decision as to whether or not the immigrant is deportable on the grounds that the DHS has outlined.
Having an attorney plead your case before the court can only help your chances of protecting your residency status. The attorneys at Kriezelman Burton & Associates, LLC can help build your case against the deportation order. Give us a call or contact us online to set up an appointment.

One of my relatives just received her Green Card and the credit goes to Kevin Raica and his Paralegal, Aga Bogdanowicz. The final “Adjust Status Petition” including the supporting documentation was 128 pages long! There is no way we could have compiled this level of detail much less have it be error free on our own. The whole process took around 8 months which is to be expected; however, the Petition package was so complete that no interview was required. If you ever have need of immigration legal service you just can’t go wrong with Kevin Raica and the immigration…
My international partner and I needed assistance with completing the process to receive a green card and residency in the United States.
