At Gurian Group P.A., we understand the impact that being deported can have on your life and your family’s life.
The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) can institute a deportation or removal proceeding for many reasons. Simply because ICE has sent you a deportation notice does not mean that you will automatically be removed from the U.S.
Our office is located in Miami, Florida, but we can represent you in criminal and immigration courts throughout Miami-Dade and Broward counties. You have the right to challenge your deportation and work toward a cancellation of removal. If you are facing criminal charges, you also have a right to have an attorney defend you. You should have an attorney on your side who thoroughly understands immigration law and knows how to create a compelling argument on your behalf. We can do both.
What Could Lead To Removal Proceedings?
There are many reasons why ICE may institute a deportation proceeding. Some of the most common reasons include:
Commission of a crime, regardless of when it occurred
Conduct-based grounds, including drug or alcohol addiction
Errors or fraud related to immigration documentation such as participating in a fraudulent marriage
Staying in the U.S. after a tourist, student or other visa has expired
Failing to appear at a prior immigration hearing
Violating any condition of your visa status, including failing to update your address.
Criminal Offenses Are Essentially An Automatic Trigger
Criminal offenses are arguably the most common reason for deportation. If you are in the country illegally and arrested, ICE will know you are in custody and will likely begin the process for deportation. It is absolutely vital that you have an attorney who intimately understands immigration law. Even participation in certain diversionary programs to avoid conviction can impact your immigration status.
