Deportation (removal) and asylum are two sensitive and complicated topics that immigrants can face. You should know your options.
Regardless of how you entered the country, all immigrants, including lawful permanent residents (green card holders), could be subject to deportation if they violate any U.S. laws. The thought of deportation from the United States can be overwhelming, and having an experienced immigration attorney at your side, to guide you through the process and presenting any defenses you may have to fight your deportation, can make all of the difference.
If you fear you may be placed into removal (deportation) proceedings, or have already been placed into them, the experienced attorneys at Bashyam Shah LLP can help. Attorney Allison Lukanich is a North Carolina Board Certified Specialist in Immigration Law. She has experience in all aspects of removal defense, having represented clients in Immigration Courts around the country, including appeals to the Board of Immigration Appeals and the Federal Circuit Courts. She will review your case and immigration history and help come up with a strategy to provide the best possible defense to fight your removal. Please contact us today to schedule a consultation.
If you are physically present in the United States and have a fear of being persecuted in your home country, you may qualify for asylum, regardless of how you entered the country or your current immigration status. If granted, asylum would allow you to remain in the United States without fear of removal or deportation to your home country, due to Federal and International protections you receive.
You can file for asylum both affirmatively or defensively. You can file affirmatively if you are in lawful status, or are not in removal (deportation) proceedings, and you can file defensively if you have already been placed into removal proceedings.
If you fear being persecuted in your home country, or have already been persecuted, you should schedule a consultation with the experienced attorneys at Bashyam Shah LLP, who can help you identify if you qualify for asylum within the United States, and assist you with your application. Attorney Allison Lukanich is a North Carolina Board Certified Specialist in Immigration Law, and has experience in filing both affirmative and defensive asylum cases. Please contact us today to schedule a consultation.
