Frequently asked questions

IMMIGRATION

My relative/boyfriend/fiancée is in Northwest Detention Center – what should we do?

The Washington Law Team gets this question often and we help many clients with this issue. The first task for the atorney is to obtain his client’s release from detention at the earliest possible time and at the least expense possible. In most cases, a court hearing must be requested at the earliest possible time. When your loved one has been detained at the Northwest Detention Center, they will be unable to contact you until they are processed. Don’t panic, you will be able to speak to them again as long as you follow the appropriate procedures. It has been our experience that the best way to start the process of getting your loved one released is to contact an EXPERIENCED immigration attorney immediately and let them help you through the complicated process. Usually a legal immigration professional will need to be engaged at some point of your loved one’s incarceration, so it is best to engage the immigration attorney early.

 

My relative/boyfriend/fiancée is in jail with an immigration hold. What do we do?

An immigration is a process in which a document that is filled by I.C.E (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) that informs the immigration law enforcement agency (King County Police, Snohomish County Police, Everett Police, Marysville Police, etc) to hold the person after they have completed their criminal sentence or detention and then release that person to I.C.E. Once that happens, the I.C.E agency usually conducts an investigation to determine if that individual is subject to being removed from the US.
