My uncle has car accident yesterday it wasn't he's fault but he drink some beers before the accident it got arrested unfortunally he don't have documents he's illegal he have a deportation and have court this Monday and we don't know what to do? There is any way we can't stop the deportation he has two brother they are residents but don't have any other family with documents. Any advice will help a lot thank you so much for you time and answers...
There are two issues that has to be addressed here; 1) Criminal charges: Since he is undocumented and most likely he is unlicensed, then he is facing several charges due to this accident. Of course severity of these charges will depend upon his prior criminal record.
2) Removal proceedings: you stated that he was deported, if so ,then you certainly need an attorney to evaluate and see what options your uncle may have as you have not put enough facts to assess his situation properly.
Please note that he will be appointed a public defender with regards to his criminal proceedings. However, any new convictions, should he plead guilty will work against him. In short he needs attorney that is competent both in criminal and immigration!
Was he released from jail? He should have been. If not, you may want to think about bail. I doubt there would be an immigration hold.
There are many important facts not brought up in your question, the biggest one being whether anyone was hurt in the accident.
Your family should contact a LOCAL attorney. Most of us give free consultations, so all you have to lose is your time!
