Murrieta Deportation Defense Attorney

Legal Representation for Deportation & Removal Proceedings (951) 433-7124

Deportation and removal is not a criminal proceeding, but the process is similar. Individuals facing removal proceedings have the right to an attorney, but the government does not have to provide free legal representation. At The Khan Law Firm, our Murrieta deportation defense lawyer represents the interests of clients facing deportation and removal proceedings.

If you or a loved one is threatened with immigration removal, call (951) 433-7124 to discuss your case with our attorney.

Fighting Removal & Deportation in California

ICE has increased detention and deportation activity recently and incidents have been reported in the media of agents picking up people at home, at work, or even when dropping their kids off at school. If you or your loved one is facing removal proceedings, it is important to contact an attorney and don’t sign anything without legal representation. There are ways to avoid deportation. We will assess your situation and recommend the best strategy to help you remain in the United States.

Representation in Complex Removal Proceedings

The rules in immigration court are strict. All orders from the judge must be followed precisely and you must appear for all hearings. We have successfully handled a variety of deportation cases, including complex situations. Our knowledge of immigration law and the particular rules and procedures of immigration court allow us to help our clients navigate the system.

Several forms of relief may be available, including:

  • Cancellation of removal for lawful permanent residents
  • Cancellation or suspension of deportation for non-permanent resident aliens
  • Adjustment of status
  • Political asylum
  • Cancellation of removal under NACARA
  • Deferred action
  • Waivers of inadmissibility

Cancellation of Removal as a Way to Avoid Deportation

A cancellation of removal is one deportation defense available to qualifying immigrants with a criminal conviction.

In order to qualify for a cancellation of removal as a green card holder, you must:

  • Be a lawful permanent resident for at least 5 years
  • Continuously reside in the country for at least seven years, under any status
  • Not be convicted of an aggravated felony

Even if you have never held legal status in the United States before, you can still qualify for another type of cancellation of removal.

Non-permanent resident aliens can qualify for a cancellation of removal if:

  • They have physically resided in the U.S. for at least 10 years
  • They have demonstrated good moral character in that time period
  • They can prove "exceptional and extremely unusual" hardship to a citizen or LPR spouse, parent, or child should they be deported

Deportation and removal procedure is changing rapidly and may continue to change through government action, court decisions, and congressional legislation. We stay updated on all changes and developments to provide the most effective representation possible.
