Immigration detention is a legitimate and alarming concern for all foreign nationals, including nonimmigrant visa holders and permanent residents. In fact, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) detained more than 430,000 immigrants in 2011, a record-breaking number. This has raised a number of concerns in the legal and public communities, as it has been shown that immigration detention is often ethically unsound and a significant cost to American taxpayers. If you, a loved one, or someone you know is facing detention proceedings or has already been detained by immigration services, you should contact an experienced New York City immigration lawyer from the Fisher Legal Group as soon as possible.

Detention and removal proceedings can be incredibly difficult experiences. In addition to devastating the hopes of foreign nationals who wish to work and live in the United States, detention and deportation can cause significant emotional damages to families. There are a number of reasons why deportation and removal proceedings can happen, and they depend heavily on the personal circumstances involved in a case. Some common issues include visa expirations, criminal charges, and others. Experienced in U.S. immigration law and USCIS procedures, our legal team can help clients with a number of legal actions needed to defend against detention and removal. These can include motions for protection from removal, change or adjustment of status procedures, aggressive representation in the immigration court system and numerous others.


The best thing families or employers can do in detention situations is to seek legal assistance as soon as possible. Swift action can allow our firm to immediately conduct case evaluations, determine available options and craft strong litigation and defense strategies. We also offer case evaluations, which can provide you with the opportunity to learn more about what can be done about your particular detention issue.
