Resolving Immigration Problems
In An Honest & Responsible Manner

Rapper’s plight illustrates dangers of overstaying a visa

In the news recently, rapper 21 Savage was arrested and marked for possible deportation. It is noted that he has been in this country without proper documentation for many years since his visa expired. This case has brought an important issue to light – not everyone without proper immigration status came here illegally. Some did come the correct way — but didn’t leave the country when they technically should have. Far from living furtive lives in order to evade detection, they’ve lived rather openly in the past when immigration policies weren’t as fierce.

We know that keeping up with immigration matters isn’t always easy. Sometimes, the issue that the person who is here simply isn’t aware that they need to do anything to continue to remain here legally. When this happens, a lot of trouble can start very suddenly if Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) decides to take note.

It is sometimes possible to battle back against deportation in these cases. You might be able to obtain a change in status that could allow you to remain in the United States. There are very specific requirements for this, so be sure that you are thinking about the circumstances of your case to determine whether you qualify for a status adjustment.

As we discussed in a recent blog post, there are other options that might be feasible for some people. One of these is for them to voluntarily leave the country and attempt to come back on their own with the proper documentation. By doing this, they can avoid the 10-year ban on coming back that occurs when they are involuntarily removed from the country.

We can work with individuals who are facing deportation to determine what options might be viable in their case. For more information about immigration or how to contact us, please explore our site further.
