What Are the Common Grounds for Removal?
An immigrant can be subjected to the removal proceedings process for many reasons. Under Code 8 U.S.C. § 1227, the most common causes of deportation include:
- Violation of green card status (such as conviction of a deportable offense)
- Marriage fraud
- Documentation fraud or committing fraud to gain an immigration benefit
- Overstaying visa timeframe
- Inadmissibility at the time they were granted green card status
The Deportation Removal Proceedings Process
Immigrants with green card status are subject to deportation or removal proceedings. This usually happens if the immigrant violates U.S. immigration laws (such as conviction of a deportable criminal offense) after being granted a green card. However, the immigrant could qualify for discretionary relief and maintain their green card status, including the ability to become a U.S. citizen.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are removal proceedings?
Removal proceedings are U.S. Immigration Court hearings before an immigration judge to determine if an immigrant is removable as charged or if they may stay in the United States. The process begins when the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issues a notice to appear in court, usually for lack of lawful status or violation of U.S. immigration laws.
How long do removal proceedings take?
Each removal proceeding process has unique challenges and obstacles. Most cases take several years due to a significant backlog. However, more and more Immigration Judges are hired every year in hopes of reducing the backlogs. The case may also be expedited if it meets limited exceptions such as having applied for asylum at the border. In this situation, the court case is usually expedited and the decision may be issued within several months to a year.
