Motion to Vacate in Miami

Immigration and Deportation

If an immigration and non-resident of the United States is involved in a crime, of which they are convicted, then they could face penalties of deportation. When this occurs, most people feel like there is nothing they can do, and accept the fact that they will be separated from their families and friends. The reality is that there is still an action that can be taken. A motion to vacate is a request made to the judge or court that previously ordered a judgment.

Generally a motion to vacate will be accepted and granted in superior court as well as a court with limited jurisdiction, provided the defendant can convince the court that they did not have a fair chance to represent their case. This falls under the constitutional right to an attorney and to a fair trial. A motion to vacate is not the same as an appeal, it is directed to the same court, and requests another chance to defend their case.
