Will I Get Deported If My Adjustment Of Status Is Denied

Will I Get Deported If My Adjustment Of Status Is Denied?

Adjustment of status is the process by which a foreign national who is in the United States on a temporary visa can apply for a green card that provides permanent resident status. Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status, is used to apply for lawful permanent resident status. If your adjustment of status is denied, you may be placed in removal proceedings, which is the process of being deported from the United States. However, there are a few things you can do to protect yourself from deportation.

  • First, you can challenge the Notice To Appear and the reasons that the government is seeking to remove you.
  • Second, you can ask the judge to reconsider your I-485 application. The judge will review your case and decide whether to grant your motion. If the judge grants your motion, your case will be reopened and you will have the opportunity to present new evidence or arguments in support of your application.
  • Third, you may be eligible to apply for a waiver of inadmissibility. A waiver is a request to the government to allow you to stay in the United States even though you meet the criteria for deportation. There are many different types of waivers, and the requirements vary depending on the specific waiver you are applying for.
  • Finally, there are other applications to avoid removal that are unique to immigration court. You can and should seek legal representation from an immigration attorney. An immigration attorney can help you understand your options and fight for your rights.

Even if your adjustment of status is denied, you may not be automatically deported. The decision of whether or not to deport you will be made by an immigration judge after a hearing. At the hearing, you will have the opportunity to present evidence and arguments in support of your staying in the United States.

If you are facing deportation, it is important to seek legal advice as soon as possible. An immigration and deportation defense attorney can help you understand your options and protect your rights.
