Deportation & Removal Defense

What is Deportation Defense?

Deportation and removal defense means that you have a case in immigration court and need an attorney to defend you so that you are not forced to leave the United States. Some of the most common grounds for removal from the U.S. include criminal convictions, status violations, unlawful presence, prohibited employment activity, and unlawful entry. There are many different forms of relief and strategies that your Lavy Lawyer may use depending on your specific circumstances such as Asylum, Family Based Immigration, and Appeals.

  • You are not forced to leave the United States; and depending on the relief granted:
  • Legal status as a green card holder;
  • Work in the U.S.;
  • Travel outside of the U.S.;
  • Bring children and spouse to the U.S. from home country;
  • Access to public benefits;
  • Pathway towards citizenship.

Client Reviews
"My experience with Lavy Law was extremely positive. After finding them through a Google search and reaching out to them, Kara Lavy responded soon after, assessed my case and she immediately came up with a collaborative strategy. Ms. Lavy was in close contact while preparing to present our case. The motions she filed on my behalf couldn't have been more thorough while leveraging her relationships with local DA and justice contacts to ensure a smooth process in the courtroom. All motions were granted in my favor, and I offer the highest recommendation to anyone looking for professional, responsive, dedicated and experienced attorney services." Javier M. (San Mateo, CA)
