Understanding Deportation for Criminal Offenses

Non-citizens who commit certain crimes can be harshly punished under theImmigration and Nationality Act. Mainly, crimes of moral turpitude (CMTs) and aggravated felonies commonly lead to deportation proceedings.

Defining Crimes of Moral Turpitude

Crimes of moral turpitude include those committed with "fraud, larceny, and intent to harm persons or things."

Some examples of crimes of moral turpitude include:

  • Assault with intent to steal or murder
  • Assault likely to lead to bodily injury
  • Burglary and arson
  • Sexual assault
  • Child abuse
  • Domestic violence
  • Welfare fraud
  • Drug possession for sale

There is a "petty offense" exception for crimes of moral turpitude. If the penalty for a crime can never exceed one year in jail, and you served less than six months for the offense, then the crime might not be classified as a CMT. Some common crimes under the petty offense exception include simple DUIs and minor shoplifting. To learn more about moral turpitude, get in touch with a deportation attorney at our Florida immigration firm.

Effective Preparation for Your Immigration Court Hearing

If you have received a notice that you must appear in Immigration Court for a removal hearing, the government has likely charged you with being removable under U.S. immigration law.

The first thing to know is that receiving a notice does not mean that you will automatically be deported. If the government cannot sufficiently establish removability, an immigration judge will not order your deportation. On the other hand, if the government can prove that you are removable, you must request relief from removal.

Options to Halt Deportation: Relief from Removal

Seeking relief from deportation or removal may allow you to be excused from removal. This will allow you to stay in the United States but will likely be tied to stricter codes of conduct. Our deportation attorneys in Miami can help you file a relief and best options for you.

Some potential forms of relief from deportation or removal include:

  • Cancellation of removal for certain permanent residents - (EOIR 42A)
  • Cancellation of removal for non-permanent residents -(EOIR 42B)
  • Adjustment of status / residency
  • Waiver for crimes of inadmissibility – 212(h)
  • Waiver for crimes before 1997 - 212(c)
  • Waiver for fraud –212(i)
  • Special waiver for fraud - 237(a)(1)(H)
  • Petitions to remove conditions on residence - (I-751)
  • Motions to terminate
  • Voluntary departure
  • Prosecutorial discretion

When facing a deportation hearing, it is crucial that you seek assistance from a qualified immigration lawyer. An experienced legal professional can help you determine which defense or form of relief is right for your particular situation.
