Deportation / Removal

Deportation, or removal from the country, is what immigrants to the United States fear most. At the Hawkes Law Firm, our immigration attorney acts for clients who are facing deportation proceedings. Jamie Kim practices exclusively in the field of immigration law, assisting clients with all types of immigration matters.

Situations That Could Lead to Deportation

Issues such as these can arise in a wide range of situations. An individual who entered the United States illegally is removable. A green card holder who is convicted of DUI, spousal abuse or a felony is eligible for removal. If you overstay your non-immigrant visa, you may be deported. In circumstances such as these and many others, our immigration lawyer seeks relief from removal before an immigration judge. In addition, our law firm can assist you with related matters, such as a criminal charge or a family law matter. There is no need to find another attorney.

Some of our clients are asylum seekers who have been detained by the Immigration and Naturalization Service (ICE) at the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma pending approval or denial of their asylum status.
