Removal Defenses

After having lived for many years and building a life in the United States, the prospect of being forced to leave the United States and return to one's country of citizenship can be devastating. In addition to the devastation of leaving the United States, and being separated from family and friends, if ordered removed, the individual can be barred from returning to the United States in the future.

An experienced immigration attorney at Tanner Law Offices, LLC, can assist you in raising defenses to the removal proceedings. Examples of defenses which may be available are

  • Green card based on marriage to a U.S. Citizen
  • Asylum
  • Cancellation of Removal
  • Voluntary Departure

There may be other forms of relief available as well. In addition, depending on the circumstances of your case, you may need to file for a waiver in order to waive a ground of inadmissibility and will need to show that your departure from the United States and inability to return will cause a severe hardship on your U.S. Citizen spouse, child or parent. These cases involve very complex matters and we strongly suggest that you utilize the services of a competent attorney who is also a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association.
