Immigration Detention

Immigration Detention Attorney in Miami, FL

Each year, thousands of undocumented immigrants and permanent residents of the United States are deported back to their home country from Miami, FL and around the nation.

While many of these deportations are lawful in the strictest sense, a significant portion of deportation and detention cases involve circumstances that are not completely clear, and in some cases, they are reversible.

Deportation can occur to an individual residing unlawfully in the US.  There are also cases in which an individual is deported or detained due to being charged with a serious crime such as a violent act or felony.

For undocumented immigrants and other individuals who are in the US illegally, dealing with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (also known as ICE) can be an incredibly stressful and life-changing experience.

Even if you or your loved one is clearly on the wrong side of US immigration law, our team can work with you to navigate the challenging and often emotional deportation or detention process.

Our team has years of experience with the most up-to-date immigration laws and can provide expert guidance on how to approach your specific situation.

For example, if your spouse is facing deportation, what does that mean for you? Are your children or extended family members also at risk of removal?

Because immigration laws are constantly changing and depend on a variety of factors such as the jurisdiction in which the deportation or detention is processed, having a team of experts to help you understand your situation can provide emotional relief as well as a plan for the most effective course of action.

By giving us a call at (305) 230-4020, we will privately and professionally review every facet of your case before we make any specific recommendations.

We know this process can be incredibly difficult for all parties involved and our team is trained to offer as much compassion and guidance as possible.

Once we have learned more about your circumstances, we will discuss various options such as posting a bond as well as planning future steps to delay or overturn the deportation order completely.

While it is not always possible to avoid detention or deportation, we will work tirelessly to ensure that you and your family are in the best position for a favorable outcome if there are legal means to do so.

Working with you to post a bond for the individual in question can help us develop an effective strategy while he or she is free to be with their family and loved ones throughout the process. For those affected by the detainment of an individual, having them home and by your side can make a huge difference.

If someone you know has been detained by ICE, it is essential that you find out where they are being held as soon as possible.  There are a variety of detention centers in Miami, FL and knowing the specific location will help us take the most effective next steps.  The United States government also has a website where you can search their database to determine the location of your friend or family member.

Currently, federal law states that the minimum bond amount is $1,500, however in some cases, that amount can be more substantial. We will work on your behalf to help secure a bond for your loved one as well as reduce the amount if possible.

A bond reduction can help relieve any potential financial burden in the case where a family cannot find the funds needed.

If this has recently happened to a loved one, it is not uncommon to have dozens of questions running through your mind. Why were they detained? What happens next?

After locating their holding center, the first step is to work with an experienced immigration attorney who is well-versed in immigration law to help you understand your situation.

The individual who is detained or facing deportation can jeopardize their status by misspeaking.  Having counsel to prevent them from saying the wrong thing is invaluable in increasing the chances of a favorable outcome.

At Garcia & Qayum Law Group, P.A., our goal in detention and deportation cases is to do everything we can to bring your loved one home so that they can be with you throughout the rest of the process.

In cases of a minor violation, our focus is to help your loved one post bond.  Once out, we will work with you to regroup and discuss what typically happens next based on the specific scenario.

We understand how scary the entire process can be which is why we are committed to helping you in every way we can.
