I am an experienced Brooklyn, New York City based Immigration lawyer Brooklyn that fights Immigration and Customs Enforcement, I.C.E, (formerly known as Immigration and Naturalization Service, I.N.S.) in Deportation/Removal cases. I am admitted in the two United States Federal Courts (Eastern and Southern Districts) and the United States Court of Appeals (2nd Circuit). I have made thousands of Court appearances and have achieved very good results for my clients in Deportation cases.
If you or a loved one has been placed in deportation proceedings, you need an experienced Immigration attorney to aggressively investigate and pursue various possible forms of relief or defenses to deportation.
One form of relief is Voluntary Departure. This is often the best option for those individuals who do not have any real defense to a Deportation proceeding. In Voluntary Departure the government will allow you to leave this country at your own expense. Here you are issued up to 120 days to leave the country and in some case s the Judge may require you to post a bond.
You request Cancellation of Removal and get your Permanent Residence (“Green Card”) if you have been in this country for several years, do not have a serious criminal history, and the Judge believes that you should be granted the relief. In making this determination the Judge will consider various factors including the hardship to your family if you would be deported, you good character and ties to the community, and the duration of your stay in the United States.
You can also get your Green Card in deportation proceedings through adjustment of status. For example if you are married or ever were married to a United States Citizen you might be eligible to adjust status through them. One of the main ways is through a Good Faith marriage waiver or Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) petition.
If you are afraid to return to your home country due to persecution or a well founded fear of persecution because of your race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group or political opinion you might be eligible for Asylum or Withholding of Removal.
