Many ways to defend against deportation


The United States has been deporting people in record numbers during the last several years. This may be a precursor to securing comprehensive immigration law reform, and it is important to keep up with the ongoing developments of executive orders, congressional action, USCIS policy and ICE policy.

For some deported persons, deportation is a death sentence. LGBTQ people, biracial couples, people with serious health problems such as HIV, refugees, human trafficking victims and victims of other types of violence face inhospitable conditions and uncertain personal safety in their home countries, to say the least.

At the Bolour/Carl Immigration Group in Los Angeles, California, we take time to understand our clients' personal and legal problems. We strive to be our clients' passionate and devoted advocates throughout the immigration process and in defending them aggressively in deportation matters.

Experienced, Committed Deportation Defense

Our attorneys use a number of different strategies to prevent your deportation:

  • Cancellation of Removal: We can help you petition for adjustment of status to lawful permanent resident (LPR) during the immigration hearing proceedings.
  • Asylum and Withholding of Removal: If you can show you will be persecuted if returned to your home country, you may qualify for asylum. You may also qualify for Withholding of Removal or protection under the Convention Against Torture.
  • U Visas: For immigrants who have been the victim of serious crimes
  • 212(h) and 212(c) Waivers: A petition for permission to reapply for admission to the U.S.
  • Prosecutorial Discretion: The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) may exercise prosecutorial discretion in some cases. This option allows you to avoid deportation.

Voluntary Departure: You may avoid deportation by leaving the U.S. on your own accord and at your own expense with an order by an immigration judge. This is not a perfect solution, but it is a better way of leaving the U.S. than being removed/deported.

Deportation is the most serious problem immigrants face, and it's a terrible process to get wrong.

Our lawyers have helped people succeed with a variety of approaches to cancel or suspend deportation. To discuss your case with a lawyer, please call us at 323-218-0465, or write to us using this online email form.
