Seattle & Tacoma Deportation Attorney

Reasons you may face deportation

The Immigration and Nationality Act sets out many different reasons why you may be removed, excluded, or deported from the U.S. If authorities believe one of these reasons applies to your case, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) may initiate removal proceedings or may even place you under arrest. Some common reasons for this include:

  • Certain criminal convictions
  • Fraudulent marriages for immigration purposes
  • Unlawful entry to the U.S.
  • Violation of the terms of your visa
  • Providing false documentation or information
  • Violating an order of protection

Defending your rights in removal proceedings

Anyone facing exclusion, deportation, or removal proceedings has the right to an attorney to defend their rights to stay in the U.S. Some common defenses used in this type of proceeding include:

  • “Cancellation of removal” eligibility based on meeting certain criteria
  • Asserting as of yet unrecognized U.S. citizenship by birth
  • Need for asylum in the U.S. under the Convention Against Torture
  • Vacating of convictions of crimes
  • Application for a green card or visa that could have been previously obtained

The possible defenses available to you will depend on the particular circumstances of your case.
