Removal Immigration Defense Attorney Rhode Island

Have You Been Notified of a Rhode Island Removal?

Some convictions can lead to removal, or denial of U.S. citizenship. It’s a scary time. However, you can rest easy knowing you have the best immigration defense attorney in the state of Rhode Island.

Have you been notified about:

  • Deportation
  • Denial of an Adjustment of Status
  • Ineligibility for Naturalization

Don’t hang in the towel  – yet.

John R. Grasso is a versatile and well-seasoned lawyer, who can help to stop removal or deportation. Motions to vacate prior convictions can also be filed in a speedy manner, if time allows.

Cancel Removal Hearings in Rhode Island

The Immigration and Nationality Act states the requirements needed for cancellation of removal. These include:

  • Having a valid green card for at least five years
  • Continuous residency within the United States for at least seven years
  • The immigrant should have no felony convictions or aggravated felony convictions

Key Notes:

Even with a felony conviction on your record, an immigration attorney may be able to file for post-conviction relief, which essentially lowers or vacates prior convictions.

In addition, a well-seasoned immigration attorney should be able to convince the judge that an you have more positive qualities than negative ones. How? John R. Grasso can present a persuasive argument that:

  • Immigrants have family bonds within the United States, and deportation would lead to hardship for all involved.
  • The immigrant in question has a longstanding history of employment and/or community service
  • The legal resident has a business or property within the United States
  • The noncitizen has served in the U.S. Army, and there’s evidence of good moral character
  • The immigrant can prove that he/she has reformed his/her criminal record
  • More

Having worked as a former police officer, John R. Grasso understands and has seen firsthand how even the simplest offenses such as shoplifting can and will initiate removal proceedings.

For citizens of the United States, the consequences will usually result in a slap on the wrist, and/or time in jail and fines.  For non-citizens however, this offense can separate an entire family.

It doesn’t have to be the case.
