  1. I don't know because I don't practice immigration law. My suggestion to you is to repost this question under the Practice Area "Immigration" so as to bring it to the attention of our attorneys who have experience in this specialized area of law. Good luck, I hope you receive a favorable response to your question.

  2. If a bench warrant has been issued against you then it will likely show upon application for admission. Contact an criminal attorney to discuss the matter.

    Answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship.

  3. If a warrant has been issued for your arrest you may be arrested when you return to the U.S. If you are incarcerated then the immigration consequences could be great. I suggest you contact and attorney as soon as possible to fix this.

  4. You could be if there is an outstanding warrant for your arrest.

  5. You will almost definitely be detained aby ICE and held for the Miami Dade Police Department to arrest you on the warrant and transport you to the Dade County Jail for booking. It's likely that even if you post bond on that probation violation charge you will have an ICE hold placed upon you and possibly be transferred to ICE custody until a review of your status is done.

    I have dealt with these situations and will be happy to speak with you about trying to resolve these issues.
