A “motion to stay removal or deportation” is a legal request asking the court to halt the process of removing or deporting an individual from the country while their case is pending.


To file a motion to stay removal or deportation, the party must comply with the court’s rules and timelines, as well as immigration laws and regulations. They must provide a valid reason for seeking the stay, such as an ongoing appeal or pending legal action that could affect the individual’s right to remain in the country. The motion must be filed in the court where the case is pending.

How to Draft

When drafting a motion to stay removal or deportation, the moving party should clearly state the reasons for the request. They should explain the legal basis for the stay and how the individual’s removal or deportation would harm them or violate their rights. The motion should include any relevant legal arguments, supporting documents, and a proposed order for the court’s consideration.


Once the motion is drafted, it should be filed with the court clerk, and copies should be served to all parties involved in the case. Some jurisdictions may require a hearing on the motion, and proper notice must be given to all parties.


In conclusion, filing a motion to stay removal or deportation is a vital step for individuals seeking to protect their rights and remain in the country while their legal proceedings are ongoing. By understanding the requirements, carefully drafting the motion, and following the proper filing procedures, parties can increase their chances of success in their legal proceedings.
