Removal Orders for Lawful Permanent Residents

If you are a lawful permanent resident and you have found yourself in removal proceedings, reach out to Murray Osorio PLLC in Silver Spring so we can explore all of your options. We know how to navigate the immigration system and have helped lawful permanent residents across the nation apply for cancellation of removal and demonstrate why they deserve the court’s discretion despite their criminal history. In certain circumstances, lawful permanent residents can be eligible for a waiver for a criminal conviction if their family members would face extreme hardship if the lawful permanent resident was not allowed to remain in the United States.

We have successfully represented detained individuals across the U.S. and have a stellar reputation for providing clients with constant communication and reliable legal counsel.

Common Reasons for Deportation

Deportation, also known as removal, is a serious and complex process that can uproot lives and families. Common reasons for deportation include violations of immigration laws, criminal convictions, visa overstays, and failure to adhere to the terms of a visa. Specifically, individuals may face deportation for entering the United States without proper documentation, committing a crime of moral turpitude or an aggravated felony, or being convicted of certain drug offenses. Additionally, those who overstay their visa or fail to maintain their lawful immigration status are also at risk. Understanding these reasons is crucial in preparing a strong defense.

Defenses Against Deportation

Several defenses can be employed to fight removal:

  • Cancellation of Removal: This defense is available to certain lawful permanent and non-permanent residents who meet specific criteria. For permanent residents, this involves proving at least five years of lawful permanent residence, seven years of continuous residence in the U.S., and not having an aggravated felony conviction. For non-permanent residents, the requirements include continuous physical presence in the U.S. for at least ten years, good moral character, and demonstrating that deportation would cause exceptional and extremely unusual hardship to a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident spouse, parent, or child.
  • Asylum and Withholding of Removal: Individuals who fear persecution in their home country because of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion may apply for asylum. To qualify, the individual must apply within one year of arriving in the U.S. and prove a well-founded fear of persecution. Withholding of removal offers similar protection but requires a higher standard of proof.
  • Protection under the Convention Against Torture (CAT): Those who can demonstrate that they are likely to be tortured if returned to their home country may seek protection under CAT. This defense requires substantial evidence showing the likelihood of torture by the government or with the government's concession.
  • Adjustment of Status: If the individual is eligible to become a lawful permanent resident through family or employment-based petitions, they may apply for an adjustment of status. This process allows them to receive a green card without leaving the U.S.
  • Voluntary Departure: In some cases, individuals may request voluntary departure, allowing them to leave the U.S. at their own expense within a specified period. This option avoids the legal consequences of a formal deportation order and may facilitate a smoother return in the future.

    I truly enjoy working with Heidi and value the counsel the firm has to offer.

Relief from Removal

Even in cases where the allegations are true and the basis for removal is unquestionable, an immigrant still may have real options to avoid deportation. Various forms of “relief from removal” allow some immigrants to be exempted from removal or deportation where they fit within certain categories. These forms of relief from removal include:

Adjustment of Status

Adjustment of status is a form of discretionary relief which permits an immigrant to change their status to lawful permanent resident (i.e. “green card” holder) while remaining in the United States, even during removal or deportation proceedings. There are multiple statutory provisions providing for adjustment of status, each with its own requirements.
