Fighting Deportation in Texas
Deportation or removal from the United States is a threat to immigrants living here if they violate the very strict rules set up under current immigration law. Removal proceedings before an immigration judge can be extremely stressful, confusing, and intimidating. The most positive action you can take to help you win your case is to retain strong legal representation.
Let us help you fight for the right to remain in the U.S. Contact us at (713) 597-5642 or online.
If you or a loved one is facing deportation, we urge you to bring your case to our Houston removal defense immigration attorney at Galaviz Law Firm, PLLC. We are dedicated to fighting for immigrants and their families. Many legal strategies exist that we can put forth on your behalf that could make the difference in whether you remain here or are deported.
The laws regarding immigration matters contain harsh repercussions for anyone who has been found to be in violation. Even small misdemeanors on your criminal record may lead to “inadmissibility” and a Notice to Appear from the government. The Notice will lead to removal proceedings where you will need to make a compelling case before a judge for the right to remain in the U.S.
Deportation may occur through various circumstances, including (but not limited to) the following:
- Unlawful entry into the U.S.
- Having stayed beyond the time limit of your visa
- Status violations
- Immigration fraud
- Criminal convictions
For example, if you have been illegally living in the U.S. for more than 180 days, the law requires that you be removed and live outside the U.S. for at least three years before you would be allowed to return. If you have lived illegally in the U.S. for more than a year, you would be unable to return for 10 years.
