Can an Immigration Lawyer Help to Stop Removal Proceedings?

There are various reasons why individuals may face removal proceedings, such as criminal convictions, overstaying a visa, illegal entry, or other repeated immigrant violations. It is important to note that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) determines whether an individual should face removal proceedings.

In some instances, if a client hires an experienced immigration attorney early on, they may be able to negotiate with ICE prosecutors to convince them to refrain from starting proceedings.

However, removal defense can be complex and depends on several factors. One crucial factor that ICE will consider is the defendant’s legal status and whether they are a U.S. permanent resident for at least 5 years and have lived for 7 continuous years in the country after being admitted.

For individuals who are not permanent residents, several more factors can be evaluated to help prevent removal, including:

  • Whether the defendant has been physically present in the U.S. for at least 10 years.
  • The defendant has not been convicted of an offense prohibited under the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).
  • The defendant is of good moral character.
  • The defendant can demonstrate that their removal from the country would cause hardship for immediate relatives who are green card holders or U.S. citizens.

Due to the confusing nature of immigration laws, anyone facing removal proceedings must hire an experienced attorney to represent them. Immigration lawyers are familiar with U.S. laws and legal procedures and know what it takes to obtain favorable client results.

Can an Immigration Attorney Help Speed Up the Process to Obtain a Green Card?

One of the most considerable advantages of hiring an immigration attorney is they can speed up the process of obtaining green cards. Having an immigration lawyer on your side can help expedite the immigration process and ensure that mistakes do not cause immigration delays or unnecessary denials.

Some of the most essential reasons to hire an immigration lawyer to assist you with trying to obtain a green card include:

  • An immigration attorney can evaluate your case and determine which option suits your particular needs.
  • An immigration attorney can assist you with completing your immigration petition. Immigration petitions are extraordinarily complex and can be challenging for individuals to complete correctly without the help of an experienced legal professional. Mistakes could lead to your petition being delayed or denied.
  • An immigration attorney can assist you with obtaining the necessary legal documentation that you must submit with your petition. Failure to submit all required legal documents can also lead to a delay or denial.
  • An immigration attorney can help you remain compliant while processing your petition. Petitions are often denied because applicants need to stay updated with renewals, taxes, or other requested supporting documentation.

The main goal of immigration attorneys is to help the immigration process go smoothly for applicants. If you have questions about immigration processing, contact our California law offices and ask to speak with our highly knowledgeable immigration attorney.
