Fight Deportation With a San Antonio Deportation Lawyer on Your Side

Having a family member, friend or employee detained by the U.S. Border Patrol or the Department of Homeland Security can be a frightening experience. Often, people are held for long periods of time with no explanation of their rights or options. Many give up hope and voluntarily agree to their removal from the country. Returning without a pardon is illegal and, if caught, can lead to up to ten years in a federal prison. If a family member, colleague or friend is in Deportation/Immigration Court or detained at the U.S./Mexico border or anywhere in the United States, The Lozano Law Firm can help.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has the authority to detain certain individuals who have been released from criminal custody and hold them without bond throughout the removal process. This authority is not absolute, however. Whether or not you are held in mandatory detention depends upon a number of factors, and you have a right to a hearing to decide whether you can be released on bond or not.

Immigration attorneys at The Lozano Law Firm fight for your rights and fight your deportation at every step. Our Texas deportation defense practice includes advice and representation in all of the following areas:

How Do Removal Proceedings Work?

For most people, deportation doesn’t mean that you’re automatically removed from the United States. Instead, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials must follow a strict legal deportation process. There are two forms of removal proceedings:

If a judge orders your removal from the United States after this process is completed, you will have to leave the United States.

If you were arrested and received a deportation-related Notice to Appear, don’t panic. Immigrants have legal defenses and rights. However, you need to build an aggressive strategy that protects you and your family. The Lozano Law Firm works with immigrants who are facing deportation and helps them fight back.

Assert Your Legal Rights After an Arrest

Immigrants have legal rights in the United States, and deportation lawyers at The Lozano Law Firm will do their best to protect them. However, the following are simple steps you should follow if ICE knocks on your door or you’re arrested.

You also have other legal rights, such as protections against illegal searches and seizures. To learn more about immigrant rights, contact us today.

How Long Can the Police Detain an Immigrant?

If the police suspect that you are undocumented, they can detain you for up to 48 hours. During this time, ICE will assess your situation and decide whether you are eligible for deportation.

While it may sometimes feel like the U.S. government is targeting all immigrants, it is supposed to focus its enforcement actions on immigrants who:

However, other people sometimes find themselves caught up in an enforcement action and need help.

If you’re arrested, the authorities will schedule a bond hearing. At this hearing, the judge will decide whether you remain free during your deportation hearings — considering your criminal record, your family circumstances, and your ability to pay a bond. If the judge denies your bond, you must remain incarcerated or file an appeal. To learn more about bond hearings, contact The Lozano Law Firm.

How Does a Deportation Lawyer Help Immigrants?

A deportation lawyer’s job is to tirelessly defend immigrants’ rights. A deportation lawyer should do the following:

At The Lozano Law Firm, our immigration lawyers are tireless advocates for immigrants. We understand the reasons why undocumented immigrants take the risks that they do. Our goal is to help you find legal ways to remain in the United States in addition to helping you with your comprehensive immigration needs.

Don’t Wait Until an Arrest to Speak With a Deportation Lawyer

While you should always call a lawyer after you’re arrested, at-risk undocumented immigrants should take a more proactive strategy. At The Lozano Law Firm, we educate immigrants about their legal options and can also help them build a deportation or immigration plan. We believe that advanced planning can help our clients do the following:

The sooner you consult with a deportation lawyer at The Lozano Law Firm, the sooner we can start working on your claim as well as identifying potential solutions to your immigration issues.

We’d love to hear more about your immigration goals and unique circumstances, as well as help you build a plan. Our team includes deportation lawyers who are board-certified in immigration law and can thus rightfully call themselves experts. However, we also offer cost-effective solutions for our clients. If you’d like to learn more about our compassionate and customized approach to immigration and deportation law, contact The Lozano Law Firm today.

Request a Consultation With a Deportation Lawyer

If you’re facing a removal proceeding, you need a deportation lawyer at your side. At The Lozano Law Firm, we defend immigrants against deportation, educate them about their rights, and support our community members during difficult times.

When you consult with a deportation lawyer, your conversations are typically confidential. We won’t share your information with ICE or law enforcement. We know how alone and afraid you can feel after receiving deportation papers. We’d love to help you take back control, as well as help you build a defense strategy.

Our Deportation Defense Lawyers Will Come to You Wherever You Are Detained

Although The Lozano Law Firm is located in San Antonio, our attorneys frequently travel to Eagle Pass, San Angelo and Laredo. We conduct our primary San Antonio deportation defense caseload in the San Antonio immigration court, which covers all 78 counties of Central and South Texas and the cities of San Antonio, Austin, Waco, San Angelo, College Station/Bryan, Victoria, Corpus Christi, Kerrville, Uvalde, Del Rio, Eagle Pass, Pearsall, and Laredo. We will travel to meet the detainee anywhere within the San Antonio coverage area and then work quickly to secure a release. If you or a loved one, friend or employee already have a court date and are out on bond or are otherwise non-detained, contact The Lozano Law Firm to understand your options, fight deportation and legally remain in the United States with the help of an experienced and aggressive San Antonio deportation defense lawyer.
