Habeas Corpus is a legal way in which an individual can seek protection from an illegal detention or incarceration. While this term is generally used when referring to a legal action that can be pursued by convicted criminals and other detainees who believe they have been wrongfully imprisoned, it can also apply to immigrants who feel they have been unjustly detained or unlawfully deported. Not all immigrants will be eligible to obtain relief through this particular means, so it is advised that you discuss the matter with legal counsel before filing an application for a writ of habeas corpus.
In this type of a situation, you will need an experienced immigration lawyer who will be able to spot any discrepancies, errors or mistakes made in your case.
