How To Fight Deportation And Earn A Green Card . . .
Even If You Lack Immigration Documents

It’s 2:00 in the morning. You’re sound asleep. The telephone rings.

And it’s the call you’ve long feared.

Your brother has been arrested. The local police have turned him over to ICE. He lacks papers to live here and he’s scared. The immigration officers want to deport him.

He doesn’t know his rights or his options, and he is thinking about giving up.

Don’t let him do it . . .

Not until after you’ve had time to find an immigration attorney to visit him and figure out his chances to fight back and win a green card.

Don’t let him throw away everything he cherishes. His family, his friends, his job. His community, his home, his dreams.

. . . Not until he knows if there are options for success.

Your Defense Against Deportation

For many, fighting deportation and keeping your family together . . . stopping removal and preventing family separation is not impossible.

Before your relative makes any decisions, he should talk to an immigration attorney who specializes in green cards and permanent residence deportation issues.

Your Road To Permanent Residence

There’s a little known program, cancellation of removal for immigrants without legal documents. For immigrants who feel trapped . . . who feel there is no way to fight deportation.

However, cancellation of removal can often help immigrants defeat deportation and removal.

To start, three questions must be answered:

  1. Have you lived in the United States for 10 straight years? If you have left the U. S. and then returned, back and forth, you probably will not meet this requirement for cancellation of removal.
  1. Have you stayed out of serious criminal problems? Many convictions which are minor in state courts, like California and Arizona, may be far more serious at immigration court hearings.
  1. Do you have a close family member with legal immigration status? You need a wife, husband, child, or parent who is a lawful permanent resident or U.S. citizen. If you don’t have such a relative, you will be disqualified from cancellation of removal.

If the answer is “yes” to all three questions, there is a chance to fight back. 

It is not simple.

Is Cancellation Of Removal Your Solution?

If you don’t have a green card, applying for cancellation of removal may be your one and only chance to stop your deportation.

To earn cancellation of removal, you have to win a trial at immigration court.  This is not something you should try to do on your own.  Too many immigrants have tried that path – and lost.

Even if you answered yes to the three questions above, you are not assured victory.  You must still prove your qualifying family members will suffer “exceptional and extremely unusual hardship” if you are sent back to your home country.

As a San Bernardino green card attorney, I’ve learned this is where the rubber meets the road.

In most deportation cases at immigration court, hardship is the toughest requirement to demonstrate.  As judges will tell you, all immigrant families will suffer hardship if a family member is deported.

Client Testimonial For San Bernardino Immigration Attorney

Because cancellation of removal is usually an immigrant’s last chance of earning a green card, the rules are very strict.

Your task is to show the judge that your family’s hardship is not ordinary. You must prove it is not only different, but also more severe than the hardship of other immigrant families. You must demonstrate, conclusively, your family’s hardship will be exceptional and extremely unusual.

Most immigrants cannot put together strong enough evidence needed to prove the hardship requirement. This means you should hire a skilled San Bernardino immigration deportation defense trial attorney to help you and your family.

In these types of situations, it’s all or nothing.

You win, you’re entitled to a green card and get to stay in the U. S. as a permanent resident.

You lose, you will be deported back to your home country.
