Deportation Defense 

The threat of deportation for non-citizens and undocumented immigrants in the U.S may be frightening. If your loved one or you are facing deportation, then is it crucial that you act quickly and contact De Maio Law who have a comprehensive understanding of the U.S immigration laws and who may be able to help you stay in the U.S.


An experienced deportation defense attorney can hold immigration authorities accountable for any weakness in the case against you and determine if you qualify for an exception so that you can stay in the U.S.


Moreover, keep in mind that being a green card holder does not protect you from deportation. Lawful permanent residency is a privilege, not a right. This privilege can be taken away if you are convicted of a crime or charged with a violation of the Immigration and Nationality Act. Not to mention that some crimes may jeopardize your application for naturalization and make you ultimately ineligible to become a U.S citizen.

Defending Your Right to Remain in the Country

Common reasons why people are deported from the U.S include:

Criminal convictions

A criminal conviction may result in deportation whether you are a lawful permanent or an undocumented immigrant. However, not every crime will make you deportable.

Immigration violations

Some of the immigration violations include: 

  • Entering or attempting to enter the U.S illegally.

  • Encouraging or assisting an undocumented immigrant.

  • Overstaying a visa.

  • Entering or attempting to enter the U.S after having been deported.

  • Failing to leave the U.S after being deported.


Fraudulent activity

Fraud is any criminal activity involving deception to gain some benefit. For immigration purposes, this can be:

  • Falsifying, forging, altering or counterfeiting documents.

  • Providing false information or misleading an immigration officer with false statements.

  • Failing to pay taxes or falsifying tax documents.
