Deportation or Removal from the United States can occur in several ways:
- A court order of removal
- A court grant of voluntary departure where the respondent does not depart on the appropriate date
- Written consent to deportation
Often people don’t realize that even being granted voluntary departure can lead to a ban from the U.S. for 10 years if one has accrued more than 1 year of unlawful presence in the U.S.
Often the person seeking help is the family relative or fiancé of the detained individual. Our attorney then seeks to obtain a bond for release from ICE and DHS of the immigrant. And often the only remedy is not cancelling the removal but seeking a waiver of inadmissibility.
