Deportation, Removal Proceedings And Stays Of Removal

When an order for deportation or removal is granted for you or someone you love, you have every right to feel anxious and overwhelmed. However, it is possible to suspend the order with a stay of removal. Our immigration attorneys at the Canizares Law Group, LLC, have collectively handled over 800 immigration cases throughout the country. Claudia Canizares, once an immigrant herself, founded the firm in Miami to help every immigrant obtain their American dream, even when it feels like all hope is lost. Below are answers to a few common questions.

What is a stay of removal?

After an immigration judge issues an order of removal or orders an unlawful immigrant’s deportation, a stay of removal temporarily prevents or postpones the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) from carrying out or enforcing that order for removal. If an appeal is filed in a timely manner to the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) in a removal proceeding, then there may be an automatic stay of removal. The BIA also has the power to grant a discretionary stay of removal.

Who is eligible for a stay of removal?

After a removal proceeding, anyone who is ordered to be removed or deported may file an application for a stay of deportation or removal. Each family member should file their own application and also provide the required documentation along with their application. Our experienced deportation defense attorneys can help you complete the necessary applications and secure a stay of removal on your behalf if you qualify.

What is the 90-day removal period?

After a final removal order is issued against you, the federal government can detain you for up to 90 days while it arranges for your removal. After that, you may be eligible to be released from custody. However, you may be subject to supervised release or parole.

The 90-day period doesn’t start until after any appeals are resolved. If you receive a stay of removal, the 90-day period won’t start until the stay is no longer in effect.
