Stays of Removal Attorney in Fort Myers

Understanding a Stay of Removal in Immigration Law

A stay of removal is a temporary postponement order that prevents the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) from carrying out an order of removal. The Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) or a Federal Court can grant a stay of removal. A stay of removal can be either automatic or discretionary.

Filing a stay of removal could be an important step to protect your rights and your ability to remain in the country. Hurtado Immigration Law Firm can help you effectively file a stay of removal.

Discretionary Stays of Removal through ICE

After an Order of Removal is issued by an immigration judge, you still have the right to defer removal by filing a Stay of Removal with your deportation officer. The deportation officer may grant you up to a one year stay. The stay is renewable.

Many times, beneficiaries of a Stay of Removal with ICE are placed under an Order of Supervision and must report regularly to their local ICE office. While you are on a Stay of Removal and/or an Order of Removal, you may be eligible for employment authorization.
