About Deferred Actions
A deferred action is a form of prosecutorial discretion. Prosecutorial discretion is when a government official gives someone a break and does not enforce the law against that person. When you have a final order of removal and are facing deportation, you can write to the Field Office Director of the local office of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement to request a deferred action.
To be successful in a deferred action, you need to have compelling circumstances as to why you should not be deported. Traditionally, deferred actions are rarely granted.
However, the Obama Administration has been urging the Immigration and Customs Enforcement to exercise prosecutorial discretion, so there has been a recent increase in the granting of deferred action requests.
Why You Should Hire Me to Prepare Your Request for Deferred Action
A deferred action is a written request for prosecutorial discretion. As I have repeatedly indicated throughout my website, one of my strengths as a lawyer is in preparing written legal documents.
I work with my clients to put together as much evidence as possible to show the problems they will experience if they are deported.
