Fernandina Beach, Florida

If your loved one is detained regarding a criminal matter, it is extremely important to contact an immigration attorney immediately.

Even something as simple as driving without a license, can lead to deportation for someone who is in the U.S. without lawful immigration status. Depending on the circumstances, an immigration attorney may be able to work with your criminal defense attorney to obtain a conviction for something which doesn’t result in automatic deportation. An immigration attorney may also be able to ask Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for a bond, before the person is even taken to immigration detention.
Once your loved one is detained in the custody of ICE at an immigration detention center, they may be eligible to ask the Immigration Judge for bond. The main factors the Judge will consider is whether the person is a danger to the community or a flight risk, meaning that they are likely to attend any future immigration hearings if given a bond. Our deportation defense attorneys at the Law Office of Karen Winston have extensive experience requesting bond from ICE and from Immigration Judges. The most important thing you can do for your family member if they are detained is to contact an experienced immigration attorney right away.
