Chicago and Dallas/Ft. Worth Immigration Deportation Lawyers
Facing deportation from the United States is one of the most intimidating and scary experiences a person will ever go through. If you or a member of your family has been scheduled for a deportation or removal hearing, it is imperative you retain the services of a knowledgeable attorney right away. It is important you are as truthful and forthcoming with your attorney as possible, as the information you give your attorney will directly impact your case. At Toro Law, we understand that returning to your home country may not be an option. Therefore, we are dedicated to every client and will do everything we can to defend you from deportation or removal. Our lawyers have the experience and skills necessary to handle tough deportation and removal appeals cases throughout the federal system in Illinois and Texas. Additionally, because immigration law is federal, our office can handle these cases throughout the United States. We have successfully handled many different types of immigration cases, including those involving families, criminal convictions, asylum, U-Visas, green cards, and more.
An estimated 700,000 people are currently in deportation proceedings before immigration judges throughout the United States. In the event an immigration judge denies your case, you will have 30 days to appeal the decision to the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA). If the BIA denies your appeal, you may be able to challenge this decision with the U.S. Federal Court of Appeals. However, your best bet is by having a strong immigration attorney on your side. While the goal of any immigrant is to avoid deportation, we are seeing these types of cases occur more often than ever. Deportation and removal cases are often difficult to fight, and our attorneys are committed to exploring all available options to defend your case and keep you and your family in the United States.
