At Pollack, Pollack, Isaac & DeCicco, LLP, our immigration and deportation attorneys focus on protecting your ability to remain in the country that you have made your home. We have in-depth knowledge of deportation laws and use our experience to help keep your family together in the United States. Whether you’ve been targeted for removal due to an arrest, an alleged problem with documentation or some other issue, our qualified New York City immigration advocates will counter unsupported charges and fight actions that threaten your American dream.
Established firm outlines ways that individuals can avoid deportation
Receiving a Notice to Appear at a removal hearing is frightening. This document sets a date where you must go before the Immigration Court because you are a non-citizen being accused of entering the United States unlawfully, remaining in the country after your authorization has expired or committing an act that disqualifies you from staying in the country. Regardless of what the particular charge entails, our immigration lawyers can identify ways that you can fight back against deportation, such as:
- Waivers — If you can demonstrate that deporting you or your spouse would cause an extreme or unusual hardship for your family, you may be able to get a waiver of deportation depending on your status and the number of years you’ve spent in the United States. In these matters, the burden of proof is on the individual seeking a waiver, so it is important to act quickly and get help from an attorney who can prepare the strongest possible case on your behalf.
- Adjustments of status — Though you might have been admitted to the country on a temporary basis, the work you’ve done and the relationships that you’ve built here could justify a change under United States Citizenship and Immigration Services regulations. It is possible to adjust your immigration status based on your relationship with a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident who holds a work visa. Your employer also may sponsor you.
- Cancellations — A deportation order may be canceled if you can prove that you have been in the United States for more than 10 years, that you are of good moral character, and that your deportation would cause an “exceptional and extremely unusual hardship” to a spouse or child who is a citizen or legal resident.
Once you receive the Notice to Appear for a removal action, the clock starts ticking. Our firm has more than six decades of experience handling all types of immigration, visa and naturalization issues. We’ll represent you in the master calendar hearing, develop a sound defense strategy for the merits hearing and make every effort to help you stay in the United States.
Experienced advocates assist minors and DACA recipients
Individuals who were brought to the United States illegally before the age of 16 can delay or end the deportation process under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Though DACA is currently being challenged in court, these people can apply for a renewable two-year waiver and a work visa as long as they meet certain requirements. If you believe you qualify, our immigration lawyers will examine the details of your case and pursue a resolution that lets you remain in this country to study or work.
