My fiance whom I met in March 2013 and been with ever since was recently arrested on a battery charge when him and a few friends when out celeveating a birthday at a local casino in Las Vegas. CCDC had him on a 48 hr hold. The 3rd day ICE picked him up and transfered him to Southern NVDC in Pharump. He is an undocumented immigrant from Guatemala. In August of 2017 we met with an immigration attorney to discuss our options to get him documented legally and placed a $1000 on detainer. Unfortunately the lawyer we hired had legal issues of his own and is no longer available for consultation, and we're out the $1k as well. I know at 13yrs he came here illegally on his own in 1993 and lived in the US up until 2008-2010 and was detained in Miami FL and the Agents informed him his only option was to sign his removal charges and then deported. in 2011-2012 he returned illegally. We already have an appt with the guatamalan Consulate In CA on 04/05/18 to try for a fiancé visa and or their help. Can we motion for a bond hearing possibly? Or should I just start planning on packing and moving to Guatemala instead as Abilio is my North Star and I his.
YOu need to hire an immigration lawyer. I'm sorry the first one did not work out. But that's what you need to do.
You need to hire a an competent, experienced (and reputable) lawyer - I know that is not easy to do in Las Vegas, but have to keep on trying. Best of luck!
