Know Your Rights

Here in Your Time of Need


When someone searches Google for the term “immigration lawyer near me,” it’s a safe bet that their family is going through difficult times. Unfortunately, the current political climate has created an environment where far too many people fear they may be deported. The Ramirez Hormaza Law Group understands how tough these times can be. That’s why we provide the following services when you need an immigration lawyer on your side.

Cancellation of Removal for Lawful Permanent Residents

If you have a green card, you could have a great deportation removal defense. We can request a cancellation of removal for you as long as you qualify under certain law. Our attorneys can see if you meet the necessary criteria and fight for you to stay in the country.

Cancellation of Removal for Non-lawful Permanent Residents

Even if you’ve been in the country illegally or have no green card, the government may still provide cancellation of removal. There are certain criteria you must meet to qualify, and each case will be different than others. Our immigration lawyers can walk you through this.

Asylum in Removal Proceedings

If you’re in removal proceedings or last entered the U.S. within a year (except under certain circumstances), we can help you file for asylum. In many cases, you can avoid being detained, and remain in America during this process.

Family-based Applications and Removal Proceedings

If you have a parent, child or spouse who is an American citizen, our immigration attorneys can help you apply for a family-based waiver. This may allow you to stay in the country during removal proceedings and can be done without leaving the country.

Motions to Reopen

If you’re facing an order of deportation or removal, it may be possible to file a motion to reopen. This will result in a new trial where additional evidence can be presented.

Waivers and Removal Proceedings

Facing a removal proceeding doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll be deported. There are several waivers, including provisional unlawful presence waiver and waiver of grounds of inadmissibility, which can keep you in America.

Bond Hearings

If a loved one has been detained, we can request a bond hearing on your behalf. This may result in their release while awaiting removal proceedings. Certain eligibility must be met, and an immigration lawyer can assist in finding out if your family member qualifies.

Prosecutorial Discretion Requests

Prosecutorial discretion (PD) occurs when Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) decides to not pursue your immigration case. ICE may request your case be closed or have it reopened after an unfavorable result. Hundreds of thousands of cases were reviewed between 2009 and 2017, but you’ll likely need an immigration lawyer for deportation removal defense under the more stringent current laws.

Stay of Removal

Someone who has been ordered removed isn’t out of options. We can file for a stay of removal which will prevent authorities from deporting them.
