Deportation Removal Defense

Deportation of immigrants and other individuals may result as a consequence for entering the United States illegally. You can also be deported if you are not a citizen and have committed a serious crime

Deportation occurs when the federal government formally removes an alien from the United States for violating immigration laws. Once deported, an alien may lose the right to ever return to the United States, even as a visitor. Livelihoods and families may be impacted, and in some cases, a deported alien may end up living in a “homeland” that he or she has little familiarity with.

Deportation is a legal proceeding, and anyone who is subject to the procedure has a legal right to challenge it prior to being removed from the country. A legal challenge involves appearances before a government body and the laws involved are complex and constantly changing. As a result, legal representation is essential for your best chance of avoiding deportation.

If you are at risk of being deported, call the Law Office of Haitham Ballout & Associates today.

I-601 Waivers

An I-601, Application for Waiver of Grounds of Inadmissibility, is filed to permit an alien who has been denied admission to the United States to legally stay in the United States with a permanent resident or fiancé(e) under special circumstances. This waiver is determiend by examining the extreme hardship to the current United States citizen or relatives with permanent resident status of the alien waiting removal from the United States.

We have successfully obtained approvals in many immigration cases which were previously denied or have been dismissed previously by other immigration lawyers. We often handle the toughest I-601 Waiver cases and we thrive on it.

With I-601 Waiver cases, the challenge and effort is centered on identifying the variety of circumstances that fall under the “extreme hardship” definition categorized by the immigration court. The purpose of the I-601 waiver application is to prove that the degree of hardship suffered by the alien’s qualifying relative(s) is extreme, and that this situation cannot be remedied by a moving outside the United States to be closer to the deported alien.

When you work with our immigration lawyers, you are working with a legal team who is focused 100% on you throughout the whole waiver case to help you argue your hardship. We will aggressively review and tackle every document and represent your immigration case to the best of our abilities.

Personal Injury

Free Consultation and No Payment Until We Win

Personal Injury cases consist of victims who have suffered from severe, debilitating, and permanent injuries. In such cases, the individual suffers from emotional distress, financial losses such as medical expenses, lost wages, funeral expenses and other economic and non-economic losses.

The Law allows the injured individual to recover his or her financial losses, as well as for pain and suffering from the responsible party. Additionally, an immediate family member of the injured individual is entitled to recover for the loss of companionship or services of his or her family member.

Although money compensation can never fully compensate for all the suffering, it can help relieve the financial burden caused by an unfortunate accident.

Our office represented hundreds of injured individuals in the last eleven years, and we will gladly consider reviewing the facts of your case at no charge! Once retained, you are not expected to pay for our legal services unless we win. Our services are paid for by a previously agreed percentage of any recovery!
