Our nation has banded together during these uncertain times. Many parts of our lives have taken a back seat to make sure we all stay safe, and this includes immigration cases for those in California who are not in detention. For example, asylum interviews and citizenship ceremonies are not being held at this time.

However, this doesn’t mean that you can’t be deported. Cases for those who are in detention and bond hearings are still being heard, and cases can still be filed with the U.S. Immigration Services (USCIS) and/or immigration courts. Last month, a federal appeals court decided that immigrants who have been detained for six months and might be deported to a country where their safety and well-being are at risk must be given bond hearings.

For these reasons, you must have an attorney by your side to help you bail out, represent you in your court hearings, and help you apply for relief with the court. Immigration law is always changing, and it can be hard to understand what these changes are and how they affect you. This post may be helpful to you, but it does not promise any specific outcome in your case. An attorney can help you understand what choices you have and where your case stands at this time.

Our lives have seen many changes recently for U.S. citizens, permanent residents, and undocumented immigrants alike. It can be a confusing time for those who want to stay in the country and are trying to either do so legally or are facing deportation. Fortunately, help is available to those who need it. At Yemi Getachew Immigration Law Office, we fight for the immigrants till the end, and our office continues to file cases with USCIS and the Immigration Court.
