OUR IMMIGRATION ATTORNEY IN LEXINGTON, KY IS FOCUSED ON YOUR NEEDS

 

What If My Family Member Is Being Detained by ICE?

The number of people held by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for immigration violations increases each year in America.  Detentions often occur because an individual is residing in the United States without authorization.  Even long-time legal permanent residents can be detained by ICE if they have a criminal record, including misdemeanors and non-violent offenses.  An immigrant can be held in detention for many months while he or she fights the ICE charges.

Individuals held in immigration custody are considered federal (rather than state) detainees, even if they are physically held in state or local facilities.  The Chicago ICE office oversees all immigrants who are arrested and detained in Kentucky, as well as those in Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Missouri and Wisconsin.  When an arrest is made in Kentucky, ICE typically takes immigrants to the closest local field office, which is in Louisville, where they are processed.  These immigrants are then frequently transported to the Boone County jail in Burlington, KY – the closest county jail that has a contract with ICE.

You can use the Online Detainee Locator System to find someone in immigration detention.

The conditions of detention are required to meet minimum standards, though the conditions themselves can vary from location to location.  The National Detention Standards (NDS) and Performance-Based National Detention Standards (PBNDS) govern the conditions of detention.  The NDS can be found here, while the PBNDS are here.

If you have a family member who has been detained by ICE, you need an experienced immigration attorney on your side who can fight the legal system and work to secure your loved one’s release.  Contact an immigration lawyer in Lexington, KY at Carman Fullerton at (859) 971-0060 for an initial conversation about your loved one’s status.

How Do I Get a Green Card?

Typically there are three primary ways to get a green card (signifying permanent residency) in Kentucky – through marriage, employment or family ties.

More than 5,400 people successfully secured green cards in Kentucky in 2017.  They immigrated from countries around the world.  Currently in Kentucky there are more than 140,000 foreign-born residents.

The U.S. Customs and Immigration Service maintains one field office in Kentucky.  It is located at the Gene Snyder U.S. Courthouse and Custom House at 601 West Broadway, Suite 390, Louisville, KY 40202.

Getting a green card is a difficult process in the United States, requiring a great deal of paperwork, legal filings, fees and vaccinations, among other things.  The best way to start the process of securing a green card is to contact an experienced immigration lawyer to guide you.  If you have married a resident of Kentucky, are employed by a company in Kentucky, or have family members living in this state, the green card process will be easier, but it is not guaranteed.  The immigration attorneys at Carman Fullerton can give you more information about your unique situation.

Carman Fullerton Immigration Attorneys Can Help

 

WHAT TYPE OF CASE DO I HAVE?/

We help people who have legal problems commonly faced by those who have immigrated to the United States. Naturally, issues that threaten immigrant status which arise from aggressive campaigns by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) cause many to worry.

Whether you or a family member has been detained by ICE, is seeking a green card, or wants to get a driver’s license, these are all common legal hurdles faced by immigrants in Kentucky.  Our attorneys can help.

But everyday legal issues encountered by our new or prospective citizens concern them just as much, which is why we also provide representation in other areas, such as …

  • Vehicle accident injury claims and cases
  • On-the job injuries & workers’ compensation
  • DUI defense
  • Family law.

At Carman Fullerton, our immigration lawyers welcome many types of cases faced by immigrants, and we are here to help you navigate the U.S. legal system.

WHAT MAKES A GOOD IMMIGRATION ATTORNEY?/

First, having a lawyer who has trial experience is an important thing to look for in an immigration attorney in Lexington, since a trial could be the eventual outcome of your case.  Also important are:

  • Your lawyer’s ability to investigate the facts, then build your solid case around them
  • Your immigration attorney’s proven effectiveness at negotiating
  • A high level of compassion for you, the client
  • The ability to listen attentively to your concerns and offer support

WHY YOU NEED AN IMMIGRATION ATTORNEY/

You are not required by law to have an attorney handle any of your legal matters. It is possible to file all necessary paperwork and represent yourself at all hearings, negotiations and trials in court. But your chances of winning are much greater if you have an experienced lawyer.  The immigration attorneys at Carman & Fullerton handle a range of cases for our clients. For example:

  • If you’re dealing with a personal injury or workers’ comp claim, your lawyer effectively negotiates a satisfactory settlement and you avoid a costly trial.
  • When you are represented by a lawyer against ICE, the chances of success are also noticeably better than if you argue your own case before an immigration judge.
  • Having a seasoned family law attorney helps obtain the best possible outcome for you and your children.
  • And a good DUI lawyer can make the difference between staying out of jail and keeping your driver’s license – and losing both your freedom and privilege to drive.

Contact our office for a free initial conversation about your case.  Call (859) 971-0060.
