Protect Your Ability to Stay
If you are in fear of deportation, there may be ways for you to avoid leaving what you have here in the U.S. With the help of an experienced immigration attorney, you have the help to fight against deportation actions. We are a legal team you can trust to push through the legal challenges involved, and will do everything in our power to reassign your immigration status or file for asylum.
Contact our Dallas office at 214-504-1137 to fight for your right to stay in U.S. If you hire our firm, you will be represented by Irene Mugambi, an immigration lawyer who has been helping foreign nationals attain immigration status for more than a decade.
Removal, a process that is commonly called "deportation," is a serious order by the federal government challenging the validity of your immigration status.
If you are in the U.S. with a visa and receive a Notice to Appear document from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), it means you have been cited with a violation of your immigration status. When you receive this, you must appear at a removal hearing and know how to plead your case. We do not want you to misinterpret your rights. As a client of our firm, we will represent you with a solid defense that defends your rights and tells your side of the story.
Before removal proceedings, we will help you prepare to present your case for relief before an immigration judge.
In more serious, immediate circumstances, you or someone you know may be held in detention by the DHS. Call us to help you prepare for an appeal before the Board of Immigration Appeals.
Our first line of defense is to file a stay of deportation/removal. There are several relief defenses that we can help you define and defend.
Requests for Asylum
Asylum is the protection and immunity from deportation to another country for political reasons. If you are a foreign national visitor or temporary resident in fear of returning to your country where you will be persecuted, we are here to help you file for asylum.
Important facts you should know about eligibility of asylum:
- Fear of persecution due to race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion.
- The U.S. Asylum Program provides protection to qualified refugees who are already in the United States or are seeking entry into the United States at a port of entry.
- Asylum-seekers may apply for asylum in the United States regardless of their countries of origin.
- If eligible for asylum, you are permitted to remain in the U.S.
- You may apply for asylum regardless of your immigration status, whether you are in the United States legally or illegally.
- You must apply for asylum within one year of your last arrival in the United States, but you may apply for asylum later than one year if there are certain changed circumstances.
- Please note, Withholding of Removal is still available to you as well if you are filing after being in the country for more than one year.
Cancellation of Removal
Cancellation of Removal is another form of relief from removal that may be available to you. The requirements differ for non-permanent and permanent residents, so be sure to contact an experienced attorney to discuss all your available options.
