Can I Reopen My Deportation Order Because of Criminal Immigration Law Changes?

img_nalbandian_lawIf you are an alien and facing deportation because of a crime/crimes you committed or you have been ordered deported by a judge, we have good news for you! Due to recent changes in criminal deportation laws, your crime may no longer be a deportable offense. Examples of these changes include:

  • California commercial burglary and firearm crimes are no longer deportable offenses.
  • New Supreme Court decisions may also affect convictions involving controlled substances, theft, and other types of convictions.
  • Even with aggravated felonies and even if you have signed a voluntary deportation/removal order and chosen not to fight your case in immigration court, we may still be able to reopen your case based on recent changes in criminal immigration laws. For example, 212(h) waiver is now available to green card holders with aggravated felonies, if they adjusted their status in the United States instead of having initially arrived on an immigrant visa. Previously this waiver, 212(h), was not available to green card holders who had aggravated felonies.
