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.

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.
