The Foray Firm

Katy, Texas Deportation Defense Lawyer

Katy TX Deportation Lawyer

Removal Proceedings Attorney in Fort Bend County

Over 250,000 individuals were deported from the United States in 2018 alone. At The Foray Firm Houston, PLLC, we understand the toll that deportation takes on a family. There are a variety of reasons that a non-citizen can face removal from the United States, but many times, deportation proceedings are a result of the non-citizen being accused of a crime. People who are deported may even be required to wait five to ten years before they are allowed to reenter the United States – if they are ever allowed to return. We know the impact that deportation has on a person, their livelihood, and their loved ones, and we are equipped to help.

Houston Counsel for Removal Actions

Attorney Masah S. SamForay has more than a decade of experience protecting her clients' interests in a variety of areas. She and the team of dedicated professionals at The Foray Firm Houston, PLLC aggressively advocate on behalf of individuals facing the possibility of removal from the United States. Often, understanding why a non-citizen has been threatened with removal is a critical component in forming an effective strategy for preventing removal. Some of the most common reasons for potential deportation include:

  • The individual has been charged and convicted of a criminal offense;
  • It is determined that the individual entered the United States illegally;
  • Expiration of the individual's visitor or non-immigrant visa; and
  • Termination of the individual's status as a conditional resident.

Strategies for Avoiding Deportation

If you have received a formal Notice to Appear in relation to a possible deportation, you may understandably feel very anxious and unsure about your future in the United States. Fortunately, you do not have to face removal proceedings alone. The compassionate team at The Foray Firm Houston, PLLC have the legal skills and experience needed to protect your rights and help you understand your options. Depending on your unique situation, it may be best to pursue:

  • Political Asylum: For some non-citizens living in the U.S., the United States is a sanctuary away from their home country. If you are a refugee who came to the U.S. to avoid persecution due to your religion, race, nationality, or political opinion, you may be eligible for asylum.
  • Adjustment of Status: Another option for avoiding deportation may be to pursue an adjustment in your immigration status. Legal permanent residents are typically less likely to be deported than conditional residents or visitors.
  • Cancellation of Removal: The removal proceedings against you may be terminated if you can prove that you have lived in the U.S. for a minimum of 10 years, you are of good moral character, and that deportation would create undue hardship to a qualifying permanent resident or citizen.

For some non-citizens, remaining in the United States may not be an option. If this describes your situation, The Foray Firm Houston, PLLC can help you explore your options for leaving the U.S. voluntarily. Leaving of your own free will may allow you to return to the U.S. sooner than if you left involuntarily.
