Immigration Bonds – Habeas Corpus and Mandamus Actions
When facing criminal charges as an immigrant, it is important to know and understand your rights. In addition a to possible criminal conviction, you may be at risk of deportation. Through ignorance of their rights and as a means to immediately gett out of jail, many immigrants agree to plea bargains that have devastating effects on their ability to stay in the United States with their families.
The Frager Law Firm helps immigrant clients post immigration bonds for jail release. Reuniting with your family while legal actions are pending allows you to deal with your criminal case and still financially provide for your families needs.
Immigration bail bonds are cash bonds paid directly to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) or the Immigration Court. Such bonds guarantee appearance at Immigration Court proceedings and compliance with Department of Homeland Security (DHS) obligations. Unless the immigrant fails to meet DHS obligations, once deportation or removal proceedings are over, the bond money is returned to the party securing the cash bond.
A writ of habeas corpus petitions courts to determine whether unlawful detainment occurred. U.S. constitutional law provides people in the United States with freedom from unlawful imprisonment. Through the use of habeas corpus, our lawyers provide strong advocacy for immigrants in the criminal justice system.
