REMOVAL DEFENSE LEGAL SUPPORT

Facing deportation from the United States is a stressful experience for you and your family. At the Law Office of Alexander R. Vail, we know how important it is to keep families together. If you or a loved one is dealing with deportation, you should consult our legal team today.

REMOVAL DEFENSE SERVICES

Our team provides legal services to help individuals avoid deportation from the U.S., including ICE removals. A variety of removal proceedings exist. One of the most common falls under Section 240 of the Immigration and Nationality Act. Our team will give you a free evaluation of your situation and thoroughly explain your options. We will take all of the time we need to map out your options and give you our professional advice during each step. We won’t just tell you what you want to hear. Instead, we will tell you the truth about your case.

THE PROCESS

You can trust our team to get your questions answered about your case. Removal proceedings under Section 240 are essentially a two-phase process. The first phase depends on the issue of removability. This concerns whether the noncitizen in the proceedings is removable as charged by the Department of Homeland Security. A noncitizen in removal proceedings is charged with being either “inadmissible” under Section 212 of the Immigration and Nationality Act or “deportable” under Section 237. The difference between these two categories is significant: it determines which party bears the burden of proof in this first phase (i.e., the removability phase). The second phase, assuming the noncitizen is found “removable,” depends on the issue of relief. This covers the noncitizen’s eligibility for relief from removal. This depends on the facts of each case.

Our managing partner, Alex R. Vail, initially worked in an immigration court as a judicial law clerk and gained invaluable experience in the field of removal defense. During his time in this position, he developed the specialized knowledge needed to be a good advocate for those in removal proceedings.

CITIZENSHIP GRANTED Matter of S.E.  (2022)
S.E. is a native and citizen of Mexico who was admitted for lawful permanent residence in the United States. He was concerned that a previous domestic violence arrest would result in the denial of his naturalization application. Alex reviewed the records provided by S.E. and assured him that, based on the facts of his case, he should not have any issues in naturalizing. Accordingly, Alex prepared a complete filing that was sufficient to satisfy U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) that S.E. was a person of good moral character and otherwise established all of the elements for naturalization set out in section 316(a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act. S.E. is now a citizen of the United States.

CITIZENSHIP GRANTED Matter of L.C. (2022)
L.C. is a native and citizen of Vietnam who was admitted for lawful permanent residence in the United States on the basis of her marriage to a United States citizen. Having divorced shortly after obtaining residence, L.C. was concerned the agency would make an issue out of this when she applied for naturalization. Alex examined the case and assured L.C. that she would have nothing to be concerned of. He subsequently prepared a complete filing that was sufficient to satisfy U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) that L.C. was eligible to naturalize. L.C. is now a citizen of the United States.

CITIZENSHIP GRANTED Matter of A.R. (2022)

A.R. is a native and citizen of Mexico who was admitted for lawful permanent residence in the United States. She sought Alex’s assistance with the preparation and filing of an Application for Naturalization (“Form N-400”). Alex made sure to prepare the filing such that U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) was satisfied that A.R. established all of the elements set out in section 316(a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act. A.R. is now a citizen of the United States.

BOND GRANTED Matter of H.C. (2022)
H.C. is a native and citizen of Mexico who was admitted for lawful permanent residence in the United States. He was concerned that a previous domestic violence conviction out of Arizona would not only make him ineligible for naturalization but even lead to his deportation. Alex reviewed the records provided by H.C. and assured him that, based on the facts of his case, he was not deportable under section 237 of the Immigration and Nationality Act and that he was, in fact, eligible for naturalization under section 316(a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act. Accordingly, Alex prepared a complete filing that was sufficient to satisfy U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) that H.C. was eligible to naturalize. H.C. is now a citizen of the United States.

WHAT I ADMIRE SO MUCH ABOUT ALEX IS HIS HONESTY

“I am originally from China, and I have been a lawful permanent resident of the United States for many years now. I was initially denied citizenship for a very complicated legal reason. Alex has helped make sense of all this to me. He first helped me through the administrative appeal, and when that was not successful, he filed a lawsuit in federal court. What I admire so much about Alex is his honesty through all of this. He explained from the outset that this is going to be an uphill battle. He predicted the denial of the administrative appeal and said that the only place we had a chance of gaining ground is in a federal court. Another thing I really like about Alex is that he shares all of his work product with me. This is why I am able to understand everything that is going on. Everything he files with the court, he shares with me. If I don’t understand something, he explains it well to me. I really feel like a have a champion on my side with Alex as my attorney.” – Client
