Deportation is an event that many people living in California anticipate with dread for months or years. Your family may be among the many facing the deportation of a loved one.
You may be an immigrant who has come to the United States to escape persecution or violence in your country or to look for better economic opportunities. You may have the necessary documentation to be in the U.S. legally but are facing criminal charges that could result in authorities removing you from the country. You may simply have overlooked a renewal deadline or forgotten to file an address change with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. All of these circumstances and many others may have resulted in immigration authorities contacting you in preparation to detain you or a loved one.
There are a variety of defenses against deportation, and we are prepared to explore all options available. We can challenge the charges against you or seek a change in your status or a cancellation of your removal. We may argue that you are eligible for asylum, a U visa or other protections because you were the victim of illegal activity or other violence in your country of origin.
