Deportation / Removal Defense & Waivers

Fighting Deportation Actions in Missouri

Deportation can have an immediate, traumatic impact on immigrants and their families. If you are detained, you will not be able to support your family financially. If you are deported, you will be taken away from them completely. The threat of deportation is scary, and can be life altering. Even if you have a green card, one mistake can place you in deportation proceedings, and can lead to detention by the Immigration Service.

While illegal immigrants and legal residents alike do have options, the right defense can make all the difference in your case.

At Cofman & Bolourtchi, LLC, we are nationally recognized and known throughout the St. Louis area for our zealous representation in difficult cases. Our lawyers are experts in deportation defense, and are highly successful in obtaining relief for our clients.

Deportation and Removal Defense

If you are detained or in removal proceedings, we can help.

We routinely successfully defended immigrants who are here illegally, with a temporary visa and even those with green cards against deportation actions involving:

  • Illegal immigration
  • Traffic and Criminal charges
  • Violations of visa conditions
  • Overstaying the term of a visa

There are many scenarios that can place you in deportation proceedings. Experience matters when you are choosing the law firm to represent you. We are experts in deportation defense, and will aggressively use all legal means available to fight for your right to stay in the United States.


One way to fight deportation is to obtain a waiver. If you are facing removal or immigration authorities have threatened to bar you from entering the U.S., we will work to obtain the waiver you need:

  • Removability waivers (defense to removability) let us ask the judge to let you remain in the U.S. despite the removable violation that you committed.
  • Waivers of inadmissibility apply to our clients who have been denied entry to the U.S. for various reasons. We can ask an immigration judge to ignore the factors that were cited for refusing you legal immigrant status.

Every client comes to us with a unique situation. We have the experience to defend you, and to help you avoid deportation or removal.

When you or someone you care about is in danger of deportation in Missouri, we are the law firm you need. Call (314) 863-3838 or contact us online to schedule an appointment at Cofman & Bolourtchi.
