Unlawful Presence

When somebody enters the United States without relevant documentation, it is considered under unlawful presence. Anyone who does not have an immigrant visa or does not have a green card but still present in the United States is counted as unlawful present. And in case of unlawful presence, the police have the right to proceed with the section and then presented it in front of the immigration judge.

How are people present unlawfully in the United States?

The reason can include unlawfully entering the country without having all the relevant documentation, including the immigrant visa or green card. People sometimes overstay their visas without removing the visa that is also counted as an unlawful presence. In case anyone is violating the terms and conditions present on the visa is also considered unlawfully present.
However, there are some exceptions in several conditions. In case you are under 18 years, the unlawful presence charge will not be e counted. However, there are still some other circumstances that are there to save you from the unlawful charges. And with that, you will have to contact the immigration lawyers. But if found guilty of unlawful presence and you have stayed for 180 days or more in the United States.
