Immigration - Removal and Bond Proceedings

Top Immigration Attorney in Miami

Federal law requires individuals who are physically present in the U.S. to have some type of valid status. If you do not, officials from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement may attempt to remove you from the country. They may also hold you in custody until your immigration case concludes. At Seltzer Mayberg, LLC, we have the experience to help you through all stages of your removal and bond proceedings.

Removal Defense

If government officials believe a person does not have authorization to be in the country, they may initiate removal proceedings. Most who are facing removal appear before an immigration judge. While immigration court allows government lawyers to present evidence, it also allows individuals to mount a defense. Here are some common defenses to a removability charge:

  • • Adjustment of status, where the person seeks a green card
  • • Cancellation of removal, where the judge allows the person to remain in the country
  • • Asylum, where the person has a well-founded fear of removal
  • • Voluntary departure, where the person agrees to leave on his or her own

Bond Hearings

Sometimes, ICE officers seek to hold a person in immigration detention throughout the removal process. Still, because U.S. immigration law strictly defines who officials may detain, a judge should hold a bond hearing. If a person meets all the following criteria, he or she is likely eligible for release on an immigration bond:

  • • Not a flight risk
  • • Not a risk to the community
  • • No record of certain crimes
  • • No existing removal orders
