Removal (Deportation) Defense

Individuals deported from the U.S. are forced to leave against their will because they have been found to have done something that violates one or more laws of the U.S.  The potential grounds of deportation are numerous and include failures to maintain lawful status, security- and political-related grounds, fraud and misrepresentation including marriage fraud, crimes of moral turpitude, aggravated felonies, crimes of violence, drug-related crimes, and many other grounds.  Any non-U.S. citizen, including lawful permanent residents (green card holders), may be subject to one or more grounds of removal, even for acts that occurred many years ago.

Bakken Law represents individuals in removal and deportation proceedings in Immigration Courts in Denver and across the U.S., the Board of Immigration Appeals, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit.  Relief from removal may be available depending on the particular details of your life, immigration history, and the reason or reasons why Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is seeking to remove you from the U.S.  Certain long-term residents of the U.S. (with or without green cards) may avoid deportation if they qualify for Cancellation of Removal.  Persons who fear persecution in their home country may seek relief from deportation through an application for asylum.  Voluntary Departure may be granted (allowing one to leave the U.S. at one’s own expense) as a way to avoid deportation.
