Use the contact form to the right to tell us about your case.  Or, call our main office at (703) 964-0245 to set up your consultation. 

You can locate someone who is in immigration detention by using ICE’s Online Detainee Locator.  Click here.  You will need the correct and full name and either A# or date of birth.  The system can be hard to use sometimes, so if you have any questions, call us or use the form on the right.

If you already know which detention center, you can look up information about that center by clicking here.

In Virginia the main detention facilities are FarmvilleRappahannock, and Hampton Roads.  In Maryland, there is Worcester County Detention Center.  Many DC-area cases get transferred to York County Prison.

It can be hard to get information when someone is detained in immigration custody.  Call us; we can help you find your loved one, contact the deportation officer, and see if we can file for bond, or stop deportation.

There are several forms of relief that are available: asylum, withholding of removal, cancellation of removal, adjustment of status, deferral of removal, waivers under section 212(c), 212(h), 212(i), and others.  Each one has its own requirements which must be met and are strictly enforced..  But you also have to show “discretionary eligibility” – that is, you’re saying, “I not only meet all the requirements, but I deserve this form of relief from removal.”

Removal proceedings take time.  The best thing to do is to be mentally prepared for a long battle, and also to use the time to strengthen your case.  Circumstances change and strengthen cases.  Each case is absolutely unique and the wise attorney will creatively think out of the box to build a customized case that maximizes the chance of success.

Our experienced attorneys have represented clients in hundreds of removal proceedings in various immigration courts across the country.  Consulting with an attorney is the first step towards re-securing your freedom.
