We Fight For Clients In Detention And Bond Hearings

Contextual Image

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has authority to question and detain individuals who are suspected of violating U.S. immigration laws. One common scenario is a traffic stop in which the officer runs a search and discovers an immigration hold or a question of immigration status. Noncitizens may also be detained by Homeland Security upon arrest on suspicion of certain crimes or outstanding warrants for deportable offenses.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is the law enforcement arm of DHS. Within 48 hours of arrest, ICE officials must decide whether to detain a person or release him or her on bond. The agency will also decide whether to pursue removal (deportation).

Immigration Defense Attorneys For ICE Detention

The immigration lawyers of Kurzban Kurzban Tetzeli and Pratt P.A. have extensive experience defending clients in detention and bond hearings and deportation proceedings.

Individuals who are subject to immigration holds may be transferred to an ICE detention center — a local facility in South Florida or sometimes an out-of-state center. This is scary and stressful, especially when you cannot contact your detained family member or get answers from government officials.

When our firm is contacted right away, our lawyers can advocate for clients in an immigration bond hearing (detention hearing). The judge will decide whether to hold the person indefinitely until removal proceedings or release the person upon posting of a cash bond. We will work to get your family member bonded out so he or she is not transferred far from home and needlessly jailed for weeks or months.

We Want To Get You Back To Your Family

Our goal is to get clients released on bond before being transported to a detention center. However, we have also gone to court to get clients released from Krome (Miami), Baker, Broward (Pompano Beach), Glades (Okeechobee) and other ICE facilities in Florida and beyond.

Meanwhile, our defense attorneys deal with the underlying offense, especially if it is an aggravated felony or other deportable offense. If we can get the criminal charges or immigration violation dismissed or reduced, we can then petition for cancelation of removal. Our attorneys also handle immigration appeals on behalf of clients who have already been processed and ordered to be deported.

Time is critical! Call Kurzban Kurzban Tetzeli and Pratt P.A. at 786-401-4706 right away to speak with our highly experienced and accomplished immigration attorneys.
