Removal Proceedings and Deportation
Miami Deportation Defense Lawyer
Removal proceedings are the process of removing a person from the United States and returning them to their country of origin. The reason for removal can be anything from visa overstay to residency ineligibility. This process involves determining the removability of a person from the U.S., if the person is a legal resident then they cannot be removed, however if they are here on a
permanent resident visa and they were convicted of a felony, then they may be able to be deported.
These processes are generally conducted by an immigration judge in an immigration court. Most often, when a person is arrested for a felony, while charges are pressed and the case is tried; there will be paperwork to be filled out that will lead officials to suspect that the accused is not a legal resident of the United States. Upon further investigation, and if the person is convicted, then they may be placed in removal proceedings. One major factor in denying eligibility for a visa into the United States is the conviction of a felony.
