Removal/Deportation Defense - Our Jacksonville deportation lawyer focuses on immigration. We also have an extensive background in both deportation defense and criminal law. Very few immigration attorneys understand criminal law and very few criminal attorneys understand immigration law. We understand both. Whether your deportation case involves a criminal conviction or not, we can help you. Jacksonville deportation attorney Jeremy Lasnetski is a former prosecutor and handles criminal defense cases. Deportation Attorney John Gihon, is a former ICE Attorney who understands how the immigration system works from the inside. He focuses on deportation cases and he appears before the Orlando Immigration Court on a daily basis.
Immigration Bond Hearings - Many people are in-custody in the Baker County Detention Facility, but their immigration case is in Orlando. That means that they will never be physically in the same room with the immigration judge, immigration prosecutor, and in many cases, with their own attorney. Jacksonville deportation Attorney Jeremy Lasnetski practices out of our Jacksonville office and travels to Baker County on a regular basis to see clients. With Shorstein, Lasnetski, & Gihon, you have access to two deportation attorneys in each area where your loved one is located and where the immigration court is located.
Cancellation of removal for lawful permanent residents - Lawful Permanent Residents (Greencard holders) can be deported for various reasons, including certain criminal convictions, abandonment of residency, fraud, and more. If you, or a loved one is a lawful permanent resident facing deportation, there may be forms of relief available, including cancellation of removal. Our Jacksonville deportation attorneys are experienced trial court attorneys who handle Cancellation of removal cases on a regular basis.
Cancellation of removal for non-lawful permanent residents - When someone comes into the United States without authorization or overstays their visa or is otherwise not a lawful permanent resident and they are placed in deportation proceedings, that isn't the end of the story. He or she may be eligible for the immigration judge to cancel the removal. If this happens, the person would obtain a greencard. Our Jacksonville deportation lawyers can help apply for cancellation of removal.
Withholding of removal - Withholding of removal is a form of relief from deportation that is similar to asylum. The person will be ordered removed, but will not be deported. If you are not eligible for cancellation of removal or any other form of relief, withholding of removal may be a viable option to prevent you from being deported to a country that is going to persecute you. Call our experienced Jacksonville deportation lawyers to discuss your case.
Convention against torture - Convention Against Torture is similar to withholding of removal.
Asylum - Asylum can lead to a greencard and eventual citizenship. It has saved countless lives through the years. It is a form of relief from deportation when you can establish past persecution or a well founded fear of persecution based on race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion. It is a complex area of law. Call our Jacksonville deportation defense lawyers to discuss whether you are eligible.
212(h) Waivers of certain criminal offenses - Certain criminal grounds of inadmissibility can be waived by the Immigration Judge in certain circumstances. That means that if you have a deportable criminal conviction, you may be able to get a waiver that prevents your deportation.
Adjustment of status before an immigration judge - Some people are eligible to adjust status before an immigration judge and therefore obtain a greencard. For example, if you overstayed your visitor visa, married a U.S. citizen and then were placed in deportation proceedings. You may be eligible to adjust your status before the immigration judge to avoid deportation.
Stays of removal - If you are not eligible for any form of relief and the immigration judge orders you removed (deported), you may be able to file an application for stay of removal with ICE. This is a temporary, discretionary benefit where ICE may agree to not physically deport you for a year. The application is renewable each year.
Motions to Reopen - If you have an order of removal already in place, you may be able to file a motion to reopen the immigration case and apply for a form of relief.
Appeals - If you were ordered removed, it is important to immediately contact us about whether you have a viable appeal. There are strict timeframes for filing an appeal. You may be able to appeal to the Board of Immigration Appeals if there is a viable issue.
