Albuquerque Deportation Information

Are You Subject to Deportation?

Deportation, termed "removal" in immigration law, is the process that the United States uses to expel a noncitizen, generally, back to his or her home country. Noncitizens are deported because they are in the U.S. illegally, overstayed their visa, violated some sort of immigration or criminal law, or falsely claimed U.S. citizenship.

Deportation Process

The deportation process involves the intricacies of immigration law and government procedures. You are not required to have legal representation in immigration matters, but a an Albuquerque immigration lawyer can navigate the complexities of immigration law and may increase the prospect of a favorable ruling.

Best Time to Seek Legal Help

No matter what your legal issue may be, it is always best to seek legal help early in the process. An attorney can help secure what is likely to be the best possible outcome for your situation and avoid both unnecessary complications or errors.

Top Questions to Ask a Lawyer

  • What is the usual process to resolve my case? How long will it take to resolve this?
  • What are likely outcomes of a case like mine? What should I expect?

An experienced lawyer should be able to communicate a basic "road map" on how to proceed. The lawyer should be able to walk you through the anticipated process, key considerations, and potential pitfalls to avoid. Once you've laid out the facts of your situation to the lawyer, he/she should be able to frame expectations and likely scenarios to help you understand your legal issue.

How will an attorney charge me?

A reputable attorney will be very upfront about how he/she will charge you. The three most common fee structures that attorneys use to charge for their services are:

  • Bill by the hour
  • Contingent fee agreement
  • Flat fee agreement

Depending on your specific legal situation, it's possible that only one type of fee structure is available. For instance, criminal defense attorneys almost always bill by the hour. In a flat fee arrangement, an attorney accepts a one-time payment to help you resolve your issue. With a contingent fee agreement, the client pays little to nothing upfront and the attorney receives a percentage of the money recovered if you win your case.
