U.S. immigration law: Man leaves family behind due to deportation

The idea of moving from a long-term home can often fill many people with anxiety. They may dread the idea of leaving friends or family behind, and the idea of getting used to new and unfamiliar surrounds can prove difficult. Though may California residents make the decision to move on their own, some individuals may be forced to move due to violations of U.S. immigration law.

It was recently reported that one individual in another state was deported. The man had lived in the United States with his family for approximately 30 years. He had entered the country as a 10-year-old child, and now as a 39-year-old man, he was required to leave his home and family for another country. The man has a wife who is a U.S. citizen, and they have two children together.

The man's wife stated that her husband has no criminal record. It was also reported that they had attempted to obtain a change of status in 2005, but the change was denied due to improper paperwork being filed. Though he received an order for removal in 2009, a stay of deportation was put in place. It was during their yearly check-in with Immigration and Customs Enforcement that the man was detained.

Having to face the removal of a family member can be a difficult situation for any family. Individuals in California who fear that deportation may soon affect themselves or their family members may wish to find out more information on their possible legal options. Speaking with attorneys knowledgeable in U.S. immigration law may help parties seek adjustment of status, defend against deportation or other actions.
