Orlando Deportation Defense Attorney

Deportation / Removal Defense in Immigration Court

Board Certified Immigration Attorney Suzanne E. Vazquez regularly defends clients before the Orlando Immigration Court. Additionally, she has experience representing clients at the Broward Transitional Center in Pompano Beach, the Miami Immigration Court and Krome (Miami).

Most of the clients that Suzanne represents in removal proceedings are in removal proceedings as a result of:

  1. Traveling outside the United States and having a criminal conviction;
  2. As a result of being turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) by the local police after a traffic stop or being identified by ICE during incarceration after arrest; or
  3. As a result of a denial of an immigration application that they submitted without realizing the risk of exposure to removal proceedings.

If you or a loved one find yourself in removal proceedings, you want the best representation possible because a noncitizen normally receives only one chance to prove that he or she should not be removed. You need a deportation defense attorney like Suzanne E. Vazquez, who will fight for you! The consequences of an order of removal can be severe. A noncitizen may not be able to return to the United States for 5 years to life.

In the removal proceedings, the immigration judge first must decide whether there is a valid reason to remove a noncitizen. Suzanne can analyze the charges against you to make sure they are valid. There are many reasons to remove a noncitizen, including fraud, abandonment of lawful permanent residence, unlawful presence, and criminal convictions. The immigration laws regarding conviction of a crime are particularly complex, so removability on that basis often maybe challenged. If a challenge is successful, the removal proceedings are terminated (dismissed).

If the government meets their burden of proof (when they have the burden of proof) or the Immigration Judge sustains the charges against you, the Immigration Judge will decide any forms of relief from removal you are eligible to apply for. Examples of these applications for relief from removal include:

  • cancellation of removal ( EOIR-42A and EOIR-42B);
  • relief under former section 212(c);
  • adjustment of status;
  • waivers of inadmissibility (I-601) under 212(h) (crimes), 212 (i) (fraud/misrepresentation), and 212 (k) (innocent ineligibility);
  • waivers of deportability under 237 (a) (1) (H) (fraud/misrepresentation at the time of admission) and 237 (a) (1) (E) (iii) (smuggling of spouse or child);
  • Asylum, withholding of removal, and Convention Against Torture relief;
  • and voluntary departure in lieu of a removal order.
