Deportation among Legal Permanent Residents and undocumented individuals within the U.S. has increased dramatically in recent years. Often, individuals in deportation proceedings are ones who have been residing in and have strong family ties to the U.S. Individuals who are fleeing persecution from nations around the world are often placed in deportation proceedings as a result of their recent illegal entry into the country. Aggressive immigration law enforcement often places many of these individuals in detention during deportation proceedings.
The U.S. Government does not provide an attorney to represent individuals in deportation proceedings. Deportation hearings can be complex and can carry devastating consequences if undertaken without legal counsel. Our goal is to prevent your deportation and reunite you with your family. From initial court appearances to federal court appeals, we have helped many individuals achieve successful outcomes in their deportation proceedings. Whether our initial consultation occurs at our office or in a detention center, the attorneys and staff at De La Garza & Ramirez will conduct a thorough examination into the facts of your case and diligently explore all possible options for relief from deportation.
Removal proceedings are often initiated as a result of crimes. It is important to understand that the outcome in your criminal case will have a direct impact on not only the type of immigration relief you may seek, but may also prevent you from applying for immigration benefits in the future. Our unique knowledge in both areas of law provides our clients with the confidence that every effort will be made to minimize the consequences of both your criminal and immigration case.
Becoming a U.S. citizen is an important and meaningful event for many immigrants. Many factors need to be considered before applying for naturalization.

Our office handles initial naturalization applications as well as appeals from naturalization decisions.

Other individuals U.S. citizen status comes into question because of duplicate birth certificates or q questionable midwife birth. Federal action is commonly required to resolve citizenship claims and to prevent the government from denying immigration benefits to family members that would otherwise be eligible.
