Fighting Back Against Deportation
Being faced with deportation is sometimes referred to as “removal proceedings.” If you have been in this country for any length of time, deportation could derail your life. It could also put your family’s well-being in jeopardy.
Why You’re Being Deported
There are several reasons you may be faced with deportation, including:
- You have been convicted of breaking certain American laws, including weapons charges, drug offenses, fraud, and various other crimes.
- It is discovered that you entered the country illegally.
- You stayed in America longer than the predetermined time on your visa.
- You did not follow the rules set forth on your visa.
▪ How We Can Fight Deportation
Fighting deportation can be an arduous process, and it often involves repeated appearances in our immigration court systems. Our attorneys have several methods for helping people fight unjust deportation, including:
- Demonstrating that you have upstanding moral character
- Leaving voluntarily, thereby allowing you to return easier without deportation on your record
- Filing for asylum due to persecution or dangers in your home country
- Documenting your right to be here as a lawful U.S. citizen, if relevant
- Filing certain waivers related to non-violent criminal offenses
- Providing evidence that you have lived in the United States for at least 10 years
- Demonstrating the negative effects your deportation would have on your loved ones, including your children and parents

Understanding the Role of Visas in Immigration Law
Simply put, if you do not have a visa, you are not allowed to legally enter the United States. By definition, a visa simply means that you have met the appropriate criteria to enter our country.
Depending on your intended reason for entering the United States, you need to seek one of two types of visas:
- Immigrant visa: This is a visa for people who want to become a permanent resident of the United States.
- Non-immigrant visa: This visa is used for people who simply want to visit the United States for a certain period of time, like seasonal workers, students, and other visitors.
Figuring Out Which Visa You Need
These aforementioned categories include many different types of specific visas. There are visas for:
- Entire families
- Visas for people who wish to be married to American citizens
- And more
To determine what kind of visa you need, you can visit the webpage for the U.S. Visa Waiver Program (VWP). If you do not see your home country listed on the website, you will need to attain a non-immigrant visa to legally enter the country.
Ultimately, each visa involves different application processes. This could make it difficult to navigate if you have no prior knowledge of America’s immigration system. Thankfully, a Kissimmee immigration lawyer at our firm can be there to assist you. We can review your specific circumstances and help you move forward with your goals.

Navigating the Green Card Process
The term “Green Card” is used to describe getting the proper documentation to legally reside in the United States. By establishing permanent residence in the United States, you are allowed to stay here and come and go as you please. You would not have to obey the specific rules described under a short-term visa.
There are numerous reasons you might be approved for a Green Card. Unfortunately, the process of getting a Green Card is complex. The government can deny your application for numerous reasons.
These could include:
- Incomplete documents
- Criminal records
- And more
How to Apply for a Green Card
One way to get a Green Card is by enrolling in the United States’ Diversity Immigrant Visa Lottery (DV). According to the United States Government (USAGov) website, this “lottery” program awards up to 50,000 immigrant visas each year. The DV lottery seeks to facilitate immigration from countries that have low immigration rates. After filling out paperwork, participants are randomly chosen and receive the specialized Green Cards.
There are a few main requirements you must meet before being entered into the DV lottery, including:
- You need a high school education.
- If you do not have a high school education, you must meet certain work-related requirements.
- You must be a citizen of a country that has a low immigration rate to the U.S.
