Common Grounds for Removal from the U.S.

 Understanding the reasons that can lead to deportation is vital for anyone facing the complexities of U.S. immigration law. These reasons include: 

  • Noncompliance with the terms of a visa.
  • Marriage fraud.
  • Providing false information or documentation in an immigration application.
  • An arrest, charge, or conviction of a crime.
  • Entering the U.S. without inspection.
  • Overstaying a visa.
  • Violating a protective order.

Exploring Your Options

Several forms of relief are available in removal proceedings.  Attorney Wogwu and the team will thoroughly assess your eligibility for these options, offering clear explanations and strategic advice on the best course of action. Here are some of the possibilities of relief:

  • ​​Asylum: Asylum is a form of protection available to individuals who have suffered persecution or fear they will suffer persecution due to race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion in their home country. If granted asylum, an individual can stay in the United States and may later apply for permanent residency (a green card).
  • Adjustment of Status: This option applies to individuals who may already be eligible for a green card (lawful permanent residence) based on family relationships, employment, or other categories. Adjustment of status allows a person to obtain a green card without having to return to their home country to complete visa processing.
  • Cancellation of Removal: This is a form of relief available to certain permanent residents and non-permanent residents. For permanent residents, it's available if they have lived in the U.S. for a certain period and meet other criteria. For non-permanent residents, it's available under more stringent conditions, including providing a continuous physical presence in the U.S. for ten years, demonstrating good moral character, and showing that deportation would cause extreme hardship to U.S. citizens or permanent resident family members.
  • Waivers: Waivers are legal provisions that allow an individual to seek forgiveness or pardon for certain immigration violations or criminal offenses that would otherwise make them inadmissible to the U.S. or deportable. The availability and success of a waiver depend on the specific circumstances of each case.
