Deportation Defense & Waivers

Accomplished St. Louis-Area Advocates Defend Clients Against Removal Actions

Law firm based in Missouri and California seeks waivers and other relief for people facing deportation

Someone who has spent a long time in the United States faces significant hardship when they are targeted for removal by federal authorities. At Law Offices of Vivek Malik, our lawyers stand up for people facing removal, whether that action is based on the alleged failure to obtain a proper visa, a criminal charge, or another reason. Even if your situation seems impossible, there are various forms of relief available to aliens in removal proceedings. With more than a decade handling all types of immigration actions, we have the experience to find creative solutions to many deportation matters, including obtaining an immigration bail bond and advocating for one of the waivers available under law.

Attorneys with a strong track record work to keep clients in the country

Our firm has successfully represented individual clients in removal proceedings before Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the Executive Office of Immigration Review (EOIR), the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA), and federal courts. There are a number of avenues for challenging removal:

  • Form I-751 — People who have come to the United States on a fiancé/ fiancée K-1 visa can petition to upgrade to permanent residency status once they have gotten married. Our firm helps these individuals replace their Conditional Permanent Residency Card (which expires in two years) with an unencumbered green card.
  • Waivers relating to alleged criminal or noncriminal acts — Though committing a “crime of moral turpitude” or engaging in another type of bad act, such as lying on a legal form, is grounds for removal, many of these matters are based on subjective determinations that we can challenge.
  • Adjustment of status — Often, changes in lifestyle or conditions merit a shift in a person’s immigration status. We present an authoritative defense on your behalf so that your case is given fair treatment.
  • Asylum — If you fear persecution due to political unrest or a dangerous environment in your home country on the basis of your race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group, we can help you seek asylum in the United States so you can remain here.

The firm’s immigration lawyers in St. Louis, Missouri, and Fresno, California, honestly assess your likelihood of success in fighting removal matters and offer a free initial consultation so that you can have an informed perspective on your situation.
