If you or a family member has been detained by Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials, you may need professional legal help to protect your rights in these proceedings. ICE detains more than 300,000 individuals every year. A significant percentage of these immigrants are deported as a result of violations of the terms of their stay in the U.S. Consulting with a qualified and experienced West Palm Beach attorney can help you protect your right to remain in the U.S.
In March 2017, West Palm Beach announced its status as a welcoming city for immigrants to the U.S. This warm and inclusive attitude has made the community a safer place for immigrants. Employees of the city of West Palm Beach are prohibited from asking individuals about their immigration status. This does not prevent federal officials from ICE, however, from pursuing inquiries and taking suspected undocumented immigrants into custody.
Securing release from custody is often a top priority for those detained by ICE. Your attorney can help you to submit an application for a bond determination hearing. If bond is granted, you can often return to your home and your place of work while ICE looks into the circumstances surrounding your detention and prepares to hear your case. This can help you remain financially stable during this process. Your West Palm Beach detained by ICE lawyer can provide you with comprehensive support to help you retain your residency rights in the U.S.
If you have been placed into criminal custody and detained by ICE upon your release from detention, you are not likely to be awarded bond. In these cases, it is essential to contact a qualified immigration lawyer as quickly as possible to begin exploring ways to beat the charges against you and to protect your right to remain in the U.S.
