How Can a Rhode Island Immigration Lawyer Help Me?

If you have been hesitant to contact a Rhode Island deportation lawyer, don’t hesitate any longer.  An Rhode Island immigration attorney can provide many benefits to their clients in a federal immigration proceeding.

Forms of relief include, but are not limited to:

  • Elimination of the criminal convictions that serve as the basis for your deportation proceedings. We have effectively argued motions to vacate these types of criminal convictions during post-conviction relief proceedings.
  • Cancellation of removal is a legal remedy for both permanent and non-permanent residents who are in immigration court removal proceedings depending on the facts in your case.
  • Suspension of deportation by waiver. Using waivers against excludability, inadmissibility, and deportability may be available to you. A careful analysis of the facts of your case and the law is required to determine whether waiver applies to your case.
  • Filing for adjustment of status to permanent residence can be used in immigration proceedings to avoid deportation under certain limited circumstances.
  • Voluntary departure will avoid a removal order and thereby allow you to return to the United States without a mandatory bar of reentry which would otherwise result from a removal or deportation order. An immigration judge is empowered to grant voluntary departure.
  • Appealing an order of removal made by an immigration judge may be made to the Board of Immigration Appeals and to the appropriate United States Circuit Court of Appeals.
