Unlawful Presence Lawyer in Miami, Florida
Any foreign person living in the U.S. without a valid visa or other proper documentation is considered unlawfully present in the country. As unlawful immigrants, individuals might face removal if discovered. According to the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), an unlawful immigrant who lives in the country for over 180 days and then leaves the U.S. voluntarily, will not be eligible to return. Individuals can become ineligible for reentry for three years from the date of their exit from the U.S. If any foreign national is unlawfully present for one year or more and leaves the country, they would be inadmissible for 10 years after their date of removal. These restrictions are called the 3-year bar and the 10-year bar.
Exceptions & Waivers
Some people in particular situations may be excluded from the 3 and 10-year bars. Minors under the age of 17 are not considered for such punishment, and neither are asylees or refugees who have protection from deportation or removal. Immediate family members of people with removal orders might also get waivers of removal if deportation would pose intense hardship for the deportee and his/her family.
