Relief in Removal

This article provides a general overview of considerations by a U.S. Immigration Judge in a removal proceeding when  granting relief to individuals.  If you or your loved one is being detained and removed from the United States it is critical to seek legal counsel.   Aggressive representation is not only needed to prevent removal from the United States, but also to ensure that you or your family member will one day be able to return if removed.

Defending someone in removal is highly complex with new cases and laws emerging almost weekly. New cases and laws can make or break a removal case.  No matter how good or bad one’s case appears, the following factors will be used by a judge to determine your case:

ADVERSE FACTORS USUALLY INCLUDE:

  • The nature and underlying circumstances of the fraud or misrepresentation involved;
  • The nature, seriousness, and recency of any criminal record;
  • Other evidence of bad character or undesirability as a Permanent Resident.

FAVORABLE FACTORS MAY INCLUDE:

  • Family ties in the U.S.;
  • Residence of long duration in this country, particularly where it commenced when the alien was young;
  • Evidence of hardship to alien or family if deportation occurs;
  • A stable employment history;
  • The existence of property or business ties;
  • Evidence of value and service to the community;
  • Other evidence of the alien’s good character.

Based on the above,  various waivers are available and cancellation of your removal. A strong well prepared and presented case with the support of friends and family makes a huge difference in arriving at successful outcome and receiving the grant of relief needed from a U.S. Immigration Judge.
