Deportation Defense

Skilled Colorado Deportation Defense Attorney Represents Immigrants

Experienced Grand Junction and Durango law firm fights removal actions

If you face removal from the United States due to your immigration status, it is time to hire an experienced deportation defense lawyer. With offices in Grand Junction and Durango, Robert S. McCormick, Attorney at Law provides determined representation for permanent residents, nonimmigrant visa holders and undocumented immigrants. Serving clients in Colorado and other locations, I will advocate on your behalf and challenge the authorities no matter what reason is given for the removal action. My strategy will be tailored to protect you and your family at all phases of the legal process.

Dedicated lawyer defends rights of documented and undocumented clients

Any person who is not a U.S. citizen may be deported from the United States if the government establishes a valid reason for deportation. Grounds for removal listed in the U.S. Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) include but are not limited to:

  • Unlawful entry into the United States
  • Overstaying legally authorized term in the United States
  • Violation of visa or green card terms
  • Marriage fraud
  • Conviction of a crime of moral turpitude, aggravated felony, drug offense, domestic violence, high-speed flight from an immigration checkpoint and certain other crimes
  • Smuggling undocumented immigrants into the country
  • Falsification of documents
  • Willful failure to report a change of address
  • Reliance on public assistance within five years of receiving legal status in the United States

Non-citizens with legal immigration status, including visa holders and legal permanent residents, cannot be deported without an Immigration Court order. These individuals are entitled to a hearing to oppose deportation and can appeal a removal decision to the Board of Immigration Appeals. Many undocumented immigrants are also entitled to a hearing, unless they are targeted for expedited removal.

Regardless of your legal status in the United States, if you fear the possibility of deportation it is wise to speak with an experienced attorney as soon as possible. As your representative in removal proceedings,  I can assert your legal rights and devise a strategy designed to help you stay in the United States.

Assertive attorney represents clients during immigration court hearings

If the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) wants to deport you, you will receive a Notice to Appear in Immigration Court.  There, you will have the opportunity to deny the charges made against you and present a defense.

A person with a visa or green card denoting lawful permanent resident status may be able to obtain a waiver or temporary protective status, or may seek prosecutorial discretion to have the removal charge dropped by DHS. My firm can also file a motion requesting termination of the removal action or the suppression of unlawfully obtained evidence.

An undocumented immigrant who fears persecution in their home country may seek asylum as a means to remain in the United States. It may also be possible to obtain a family-based adjustment of status or to show you have lived in the U.S. for at least 10 years and that your deportation would cause exceptional and extremely unusual hardship for a qualifying relative, such as a child or spouse.

I come to court hearings and removal proceedings ready to advocate on your behalf using whatever legal strategy works best. No matter what your case involves,  I make every effort to help you keep the life you have established in the United States.
