Deportation Defense in Virginia
If you or a loved one is facing possible deportation, you are not alone. The Department of Homeland Security reports that a total of 641,633 aliens were apprehended in the United States in 2011 alone. While more than half of these individuals were caught by the border patrol efforts of Customs and Border Protection, approximately one-third of them were caught by enforcement and removal operations on the part of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. In 2011, a total of 391,953 people were subjected to removal and 323,542 returned to their country of origin, and while a large share of all removals are based on the fact that the individual had been convicted of a criminal offense, more than half of them were non-criminal removals.

Fighting Deportation in Virginia, North Carolina and Washington, DC
There are many proven strategies for fighting a deportation action, but every single one of them depends on you taking immediate action to resolve the situation by hiring an experienced lawyer to fight for you. In the event that you are facing criminal charges, our firm may be able to defend you against being convicted. If you have already been found guilty of a crime, it might be possible to file an appeal to overturn the conviction.
Another approach is known as cancellation of removal, a type of immigration relief that is available to people who can demonstrate that they are of good moral character and that their deportation would subject a U.S. citizen or permanent resident family member to extreme hardship. You may be eligible to apply for asylum or refugee status. You may also qualify for adjustment of status to become a lawful permanent resident or you may be able to take advantage of deferred action.
