Looking for deportation defense?

If it is an emergency, like someone you love was just arrested or detained, please call our office directly.
How do I know if I am at risk of removal?
Removal proceedings are initiated by the issuance of a Notice to Appear (NTA), which will outline the reasons why the government believes that the individual should be removed from the
U.S. It can be incredibly scary to receive a NTA but we will work with you through this process which may take months or years.
What are some common reasons for deportation?
The law is continuously changing and it is important to consult with an attorney to learn more about your specific NTA. But, some common reasons for deportation include: marriage fraud; working without visa authorization; overstaying a visa; arrest, charge, or conviction of a crime; entering the U.S. without a visa; violating a protective order; and providing false information or documentation in an immigration application.
What is a waiver of inadmissibility?
If you are trying to immigrate to the United States but have been deemed “inadmissible”, you may be eligible for a waiver of inadmissibility. The I-160 waiver allows certain immigrants who have been deemed inadmissible to be allowed to enter the U.S. but you may still be barred from applying for a green card from within the United States or from returning to the United States if you leave. An I-160 waiver can provide relief for the following inadmissibility criteria: health- related, certain criminal grounds, immigration fraud and misrepresentation, immigrant membership in totalitarian party, alien smuggler, being subject to civil penalty, and the 3-year or 10-year bar due to previous unlawful presence in the United States. Applying for a waiver is a lengthy and complicated process that is unique to each immigrant. At McEntee Law Group, we have helped many immigrants navigate the waiver process and are confident in our abilities to help you compile the correct documents and submit a strong case.
