Immigration Representation in Winter Park & Orlando
The term habeas corpus may be recognizable, but not many immigrants understand
how it can affect their cases. The term is Latin for "you have the
body" and is commonly used by attorneys of criminals who are convicted
and pursuing release. In an immigration case, a petition to obtain a writ
of habeas corpus can be made for immigrants who have received
Habeas corpus is a writ to a prison official by the immigrant in prison
to be brought before the court. A court proceeding will follow to determine
whether the individual is being lawfully imprisoned and subject to removal.
A petition to be brought before the court requires the immigrant to show
that the court made some kind of error.
Access to Habeas Corpus for Immigrants
An alien may apply for habeas corpus if he or she proves to have substantial
evidence that an error was made in relation to the immigration case in question. This form of relief from removal is available to those who have been deported
from the country. The writ of habeas corpus attempts to protect and safeguard
an individual's freedoms against government actions that are unjust.
A habeas corpus action requires a judge to review the final decision made
concerning the removal of the immigrant. There are many common misconceptions
involving habeas corpus that can be cleared up by attorneys at our firm.
