Deportation Attorney
The Law Office of Casais and Prias provides defense services to individuals in  deportation and removal proceedings. We have experience with all forms defenses  and other forms of relief from deportation, including applications for cancellation of  removal for permanent residents and non-lawful permanent residents, applications  or 212(c) relief, suspension of deportation, applications for withholding of removal,  applications under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), and voluntary  departure. The firm also has experience in successfully reopening immigration  proceedings where an individual has previously been ordered deported, then had  the deportation order vacated and ultimately had the deportation proceedings  terminated. We are experienced in developing aggressive deportation defense  strategies to prevent deportation and obtain permanent residency for those who  wish to remain permanently in the United States.

Most deportation or removal cases involve some form unlawful activity such as a  criminal conviction, unlawful entry into the United States, illegal immigration, unlawful  presence, immigration status violations, and others.  Depending on the  circumstances of your case, deportation may seem like an extreme response to a minor offense. No matter what the circumstances of your case may be, a skilled  immigration lawyer can help you fight for your right to stay in this country.  Contact  our office today at (305) 722-8015 to schedule a consultation on your deportation  case.
