Los Angeles Cancellation of Removal Eligibility
Deportation, cancellation or removal proceedings are most commonly initiated when a person has been convicted for committing a felony crime. For an aggravated felony offense in Los Angeles, Compton, South Central, or a surrounding city, a legal or non-legal immigrant may face deportation even without a guilty verdict. However, you may have cancellation of removal eligibility. To find out, it is important to speak with an experienced and aggressive criminal defense attorney familiar with immigration law prior to the removal hearing.
The Law Offices of Mark A. Davis represents immigrants and non-immigrants facing criminal charges, conviction or deportation in the Los Angeles area and throughout Southern California. We are here to help if you have been arrested, charged with or convicted of an offense involving deportation and are facing removal, loss of green card or ineligibility to enter the U.S. To qualify for cancellation of removal eligibility or voluntary departure, specific requirements must be met. However, if a person has an aggravated felony on his or her record, deportation is unpreventable. To know if cancellation of removal is a possibility for you, the only option is to speak with an attorney, such as Mark A. Davis, who understands both criminal defense and immigration law.
Some defense attorneys unfamiliar with immigration law often encourage their immigrant clients to enter a plea in exchange for a lesser sentence or charge or for suspended jail time. Depending on the crimes and charges involved, this action may eliminate your eligibility for cancellation of removal and you will be deported.
As a defense lawyer, Mark A. Davis considers all aspects of the problem when his clients face deportation for criminal offenses such as:
- Theft crimes
- Violent crimes
- Sex crimes
- Firearms offenses
- Fraud-related offenses
- Domestic violence
