If you are not a US citizen, and are facing deportation, you'll probably want to work to postpone deportation while you attempt to get permission to remain in the country legally. Depending on which immigration authority is handling your case and where you are in the legal process, you may be able to postpone deportation.
Deportation, also known as removal, is the process of expelling a foreigner from the country. Because it can be tough to fight your case when you're no longer living in the United States–and because deportation can cause tremendous stress to you and your family–you should ask to have your deportation postponed so you can consult with a New Jersey Deportation Lawyer and pursue all legal avenues. This postponement is called a stay of deportation or stay of removal. A stay is a temporary suspension of an action. When we talk about a stay of deportation or a stay of removal, it means that the judge or court has postponed a scheduled deportation.
Explore all options:
There are many ways that an individual can obtain legal permanent residence or authorization to temporarily work in the United States. A New Jersey Immigration attorney can analyze the specific facts of your case and determine ALL possible options. Those options can then be discussed and evaluated in order to determine the best possible path to pursue.
Prepare and file all appropriate petitions and applications:
An New Jersey Immigration attorney, once hired, can prepare and file applications/petitions for you. Having someone knowledgeable and experienced prepare your papers can help to avoid potential problems and delays. An experienced immigration lawyer should be fully familiar with government procedures and can help you to avoid common pitfalls.
Represent you before the USCIS (formerly “INS”) or in Immigration Court:
Once you have hired an immigration attorney, you will not have to communicate directly with the government. All communications should be directed to your attorney, who can then advise you of the appropriate course of action. You need not decipher government instructions and regulations on your own. An immigration attorney will appear with you at all required hearings and interviews, to act as your advocate.
