Deportation Defense Attorney in Dallas

Work with a Deportation Lawyer Who Will Fight for You

For the past several years, immigration laws have been aggressively enforced. Under the Obama administration, hundreds of thousands of people were deported from the United States. Though the deportation numbers appear to have decreased, the change of presidential administrations has created a new danger. The Trump administration has turned its focus upon long-term non-citizen residents. This means that living here as a non-resident makes you a primary target for ICE deportation. In Dallas, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement arrested 16,520 people in 2017, among the highest in the nation.

If you are at risk of being pulled away from your life in the U.S., the Dallas immigration attorney at Meaders Law would love to help you. We are known for diligently working to give people the opportunity they deserve.

Who Is at Risk of Being Deported?

Sometimes particular immigrants in the United States find themselves facing deportation.

Common reasons people are added to a deportation list include:

  • Entering the U.S. illegally: Illegal entry is typically thought of as failing to cross the Mexico/USA border at a legal entry point. However, it can also include providing inaccurate information about your reason for visiting the country, or even a permanent resident attempting to return after an extended stay without providing proof they intended to return.
  • Failing to pass a background check: In any green card or visa application, a thorough background check is required. Failing to provide accurate information or purposefully falsifying information can result in deportation.
  • Committing a felony in the U.S.: A non-citizen found guilty of a serious crime can be deported from the United States. These felony offenses include convictions of rape, murder, kidnapping, tax evasion, obstruction of justice, and failure to appear in court.
  • Overstaying a visa: All visas have an expiration date by which visa holders are required to either apply for an extension or voluntarily leave the country. Even if you marry a US citizen or lawful permanent resident, if you do not apply for a change in status you can still face deportation.

Other reasons include committing marriage fraud or knowingly smuggling an illegal immigrant into the United States.

If you are suspecting of committing any of the above actions, you may face removal from the United States. The best course of action you can take is to seek professional advocacy immediately.

What Happens if I’m on a Deportation List?

If you find your name added to a deportation list, you can be arrested and transferred to ICE custody. You will be required to appear in court before an immigration judge for removal proceedings. After the judge hears the charges brought against you, he will make the decision if you need to leave the country. The judge can consider alternatives to removal, which would allow you to legally remain in the United States based on facts presented in court, such as an extremely unusual hardship.

For a favorable outcome in this situation, your best course of action is to seek the legal representation of a Dallas deportation attorney. Make the right call, and choose Meaders Law to be your advocate during this time.
