Experienced Connecticut Immigration Attorney Defends Against Deportation
Lawyer based in the Fairfield area represents clients in removal proceedings
If you or a family member has been threatened with deportation, Bates Law Firm will provide a strong defense. I represent people in the Fairfield area and throughout Connecticut who have been targeted for removal from the United States. As an immigration lawyer committed to protecting my clients' legal rights in all types of removal proceedings, I will work to challenge the reasons government officials cite for your deportation.
Immigration advocate defends clients against removal
The U.S. government may deport noncitizens, including green card holders, back to their country of origin for a number of reasons. Some of the most common reasons why government authorities might try to expel you include:
- Conviction of a crime
- Alleged visa violation
- Need for public aid
- Violation of immigration laws, such as making misstatements on official immigration documents
If you have been served with a Notice to Appear, there is no time to waste. I can evaluate the government's case and begin to prepare your response.
Knowledgeable counselor assists people who want to stay in the United States
If U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) starts the removal process against you, Bates Law Firm can advise you on your options. The immigration system is large, impersonal, and one in which mistakes often occur. It is very likely that officials do not understand your individual circumstances. I can help press any defenses available to you, including:
- Charging errors
- Political asylum or refugee status
- Threat to safety if returned to home country
- Green card eligibility based on length of time in the United States and potential hardship upon return
- Domestic or family abuse
I have the knowledge and experience to ensure that you have a full, fair review of your situation before an immigration court so that you have the best chance possible to continue your life in the United States.
