Habeas Corpus: Your Right to Trial
Cleveland Immigration Attorney
The term habeas corpus literally translates to "you have the body." Habeas corpus is a writ that provides you with the right to a fair trial. If you have been arrested for any crime or have been detained by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, then you can practice your right of habeas corpus and demand that your case be brought before a judge. This writ can also prevent you from being unlawfully detained and allow you to provide evidence in support of your case. This legal process can be confusing - especially for those who are not natives of the U.S. and therefore unfamiliar with U.S. court practices - which is why it is so important that you contact an attorney from our firm the moment you are detained or arrested.
The writ of habeas corpus is considered an extraordinary law but it is protected under the United States Constitution. This writ will not be suspended unless by an act of rebellion or invasion. Habeas corpus is also a civil law that helps determine the jurisdiction in sentencing a person in custody. In terms of immigration law, habeas corpus may be used if a person feels that they are wrongfully being deported or want to challenge the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency before deportation proceedings begin.
