Many Pennsylvania families are currently facing emotionally trying and legally challenging situations involving immigrant family members. Those facing deportation issues often feel overwhelmed and unsure where to turn for support as they try to figure out a way to help a spouse, parent or other loved one who has either been taken into custody or received written notice of a removal threat, personally or by mail. The good news is that there are often options available to challenge removal proceedings.

A main priority of experienced immigrant advocates is to help those facing deportation to minimize detention consequences and secure release of those taken into custody by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers. If you or your family member has already received a written Notice to Appear, then it’s likely that removal proceedings have already been activated. You have the right to examine evidence and to file an appeal in a federal court.

You may have several options to secure a positive outcome, which may include eligibility to obtain a work authorization card. Especially if you have no criminal record and have ever been formally accused of immigration fraud, it may be possible to avoid removal by exercising a particular defense option. An experienced immigration law attorney can help determine which strategy has the best chance of helping you accomplish your goals.
