The last decade has seen the arrest and deportation of an unprecedented number of immigrants. This is an unsettling reality for most immigrants living and working in the United States. The possibility of deportation is frightening, and it can be difficult to know where to turn next when you or a loved one may be deported.

If you or your loved one is currently in this situation, the circumstances can certainly be confusing and emotional. A skilled and experienced immigration lawyer with a reputation for winning cases is almost always your ideal asset when dealing with these issues. With a knowledgeable immigration lawyer at your side, you will know what your options are, and you will know what to do next.

Standing Up for Your Legal Rights

We at the Law Offices of Garcia and Ramirez, P.C., are committed to bringing our decades of combined immigration law experience to help you with deportation issues, regardless of the circumstance.

Often, the deportation process begins when someone is arrested. He or she is detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement and has to go in front of an immigration judge to determine whether he or she can remain in the in the country. All of this can happen quickly, before the individual or his or her family even has a chance to understand what is going on.

It is important to remember that if a person is placed in deportation or removal proceedings, that person has procedural rights associated with his or her defense. Those rights include the right to an attorney at no expense to the government, the right to examine and present evidence, and in many cases, the right to request a bond or release from custody.

This is why we advise anyone in this situation to hire the services of an experienced immigration attorney as soon as the opportunity is available. The sooner you bring in an immigration lawyer in your defense, the better your options will be and the more informed your decisions will become.

Seeking Your Release – Looking Out for Your Best Interests

When we are dealing with clients who have been detained by the Department of Homeland Security or police, we understand that a quick release from custody is imperative. We are experienced in securing a client’s release from criminal and immigration custody. This includes representation at bond hearings before the immigration court and local magistrates.

It is imperative that when you are defending yourself before the immigration court, you take advantage of all of your rights. We take pride in assessing your removal case and providing tried and true strategies of defense, considering standard avenues of relief, such as asylum and cancellation of removal, but also novel arguments aimed at terminating or administratively closing your case with the immigration court. In many cases, a client is eligible for a work permit while fighting his or her case. We make every effort to examine all possible avenues of relief in your case and litigate them.

We also understand that not all cases are won at the court level. We are experienced in handling immigration appeals to the Board of Immigration Appeals and to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit.
