The experienced and dedicated immigration litigation attorneys at Manchanda Law Office And Associates PLLC will file writs and appeals in order to win release for you or your loved ones who have been detained or seek approval of desired immigration status for applicants in the U.S. District Courts nationwide. If your case has been delayed for one year or more, we will file a Writ of Mandamus Complaint with the proper federal District Court having jurisdiction over your case.

Federal agencies are more likely to comply with the law in your case if they know that the attorneys of record on your case have a solid history of successful federal litigation on their dockets. In some cases, we can even force the USCIS to re-write regulations and change their national policies as a direct result of our litigation.

After Deportation, Removal, or Voluntary Departure

If you have been deported from the United States either voluntarily or forcibly by an Immigration Judge and/or Immigration and Customs Enforcement (“ICE”) and/or Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”), there are many legal mechanisms and methods for you to return to the United States.

For example, you can always file a Motion to Reopen or a Motion to Reconsider (even if you are outside the United States) and you can always file petitions that you may be eligible for regardless of whether you are currently outside the USA.

You may also be eligible for a I-601 Hardship Waiver and a Petition to Re-Enter the USA with Form I-212.

Furthermore, you may still be able to attack criminal convictions collaterally that resulted in your deportation proceedings and clean up your criminal record. In some cases, if you file a Motion to Reopen or a collateral attack on your criminal conviction through a successful Motion to Vacate, you might be able to persuade a Judge to issue you a subpoena so that you can testify personally in your immigration proceedings or even in criminal court, either federal, state, or local, if you can persuade the Judge that your personal testimony is absolutely essential in furtherance of justice.
