Being detained because you are an immigrant who might not have appropriate documentation is troublesome. The entire process can be rather scary, but you need to know that you do have specific rights in these cases. We are here to help you when you need it the most.
In some cases, we work with the loved ones of the person who is detained. We know that it is difficult for you to see your family member in this position. We can help you to find out what options you have to help the detainee.
Immigration detention is a bit different from other forms of detention. One reason for this is that there are often language barriers that make it hard for the person being held to get their needs relayed. Fortunately, we can assist our clients with this issue. We know that you only want your voice to be heard.
On top of the trials of the actual detention, there are other things that you have to think about. Namely, what will happen to you from here? Are you facing deportation? What kinds of penalties will you face in the legal system and in your social life? These might play a part in how you handle the situation.
Ultimately, you have to do what is best for you in these type of cases. We can review your options with you and help you determine how each might impact you. From there, we will work on your behalf to ensure that your rights and interests are protected throughout the process.
