He is in jail for domestic violence and has NO legal papers to be here in the States. No VISA,no Green Card to work. Nothing. My family is going to try and help him get back to Canada if he is released. We do not understand what happens after the local courts are finished with him. Any answers would help. Thank you
Consult with an immigration attorney immediately. Do not pay the bond in the criminal case until you are prepared to pay a (likely high) cash (cashier's check) bond in the immigration case or to ICE. A good attorney can move ICE to grant a bond based on law, future eligibility for immigration benefits or relief and humanitarian factors.
