At JacksonWhite, we can help you prepare and apply for adjustment of status to get a green card. When you work with an experienced Mesa immigration attorney, your chances of approval are much higher.
Deportation Defense in Mesa
You are considered “high risk” for deportation if you are:
- An undocumented immigrant
- A non-citizen with permanent or temporary status with a past arrest conviction
- A Non-citizen with a previous deportation order, such as overstaying a voluntary departure
If you are facing deportation, you must speak with an experienced immigration attorney immediately — use your right to remain silent and do not sign anything until you speak with a lawyer. The immigration law team at JacksonWhite is highly qualified to represent you for your deportation defense.
DACA / Deferred Action Help in Mesa
In June 2019, the Supreme Court of the U.S. agreed to consider lower court decisions regarding the termination of DACA, but you are still eligible to renew if you’ve had DACA previously or have it now.
