How Can a Deportation Defense Attorney in Florida Help?

Immigration law is complicated, and in many cases, it seems that the system is heavily in favor of the government, and not the defendant. In 2017, deportations increased by 30% in the United States, while Florida saw one of the highest individual increases. In fact, Miami had a 76% increase in deportations in 2017 compared to the previous year.

It is important to understand that a deportation order is not a final decision and that you have an opportunity to fight this order. It is absolutely essential that you have a strong defense built for when you have a hearing with the Board of Immigration Appeals, to ensure that you have taken every possible step to improve your chances of remaining in the United States. The legal climate is rapidly changing in the United States, so it is important that you are working with an attorney who actively works to keep up to date on the state of immigration affairs.

There are a variety of defenses that we may be able to mount depending on the specifics of your circumstances, but as mentioned above, it is important that we understand all of the specifics in order to ensure that your defense is comprehensive and legally compelling. We may be able to file for a cancellation of removal if you have been in the United States for a long enough period of time, or we may be able to claim asylum if you are in the country to avoid persecution or violence in your home country. It is important that the fears are valid if we choose to claim asylum.
