(B)  Solutions to Deportation.  The most imporant immigration problem is frequently deportability.  If the client has lawful permanent resident status, and is inadmissible, but not deportable, s/he can continue to live legally in the United States indefinitely, so long as s/he does not leave the country.  Check N. Tooby & J. Rollin, Safe Havens: How to Identify and Construct Non-Deportable Convictions (2005) for detailed instructions on finding solutions to the 52 different grounds of deportation.  See § 5.22, infra.  Relief in immigration court can also avoid deportability.  See Chapter 24, infra.
