Overview of Detainee Transfer

Detainee transfer involves the process of relocating individuals from one detention facility to another, often due to various legal, medical, or safety reasons. For example, an individual may be transferred to a different facility due to overcrowding, the need for specialized medical care, or for their safety or the safety of others.

Unlike other forms of immigration relief like asylum or refugee status, which focus on protection from persecution, detainee transfer addresses the urgent need for relocation, whether it be for medical treatment, safety concerns, or other compelling reasons.

Detainee transfer requests are handled on a case-by-case basis by relevant authorities, such as U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) or U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). It’s crucial to understand that detainee transfer does not automatically lead to permanent residency or citizenship in the United States. Instead, it provides temporary relief for individuals facing urgent circumstances that necessitate immediate action.

    What Our Client Say About Us

    Anna Hysell saved my nanny’s husband from deportation. Our nanny is like family, so when I learned her husband had been detained by immigration, I looked for the best person to help him. Anna came highly recommended by other attorneys I knew and I am so glad she helped us. She has many established relationships with Immigration Officials and was actually able to get them to agree to close his case and not deport him. We are all so thankful for her assistance.

    Timothy G.

    I highly recommend Anna Hysell Robin to anyone who needs an immigration attorney you can trust. You can rely on her experience, proficiency and knowledge to help you. She has been a great source for me and my family when immigration issues have presented to us.

    Yadis L.

    Going through any immigration process can be very stressful and time consuming (especially post COVID). Skeptical of lawyers, I opted for Anna and her team for my case after our initial report. Nothing was sugarcoated regarding my case or the process; her and her team were able to handled my case professionally and with the outmost communication (as possible).

    Though I mostly communicated with Daniel via email and occasionally phone calls, he handle the process with the outmost integrity and support. They (him and Anna) explained the process and told me what we could possibly expect and not just what I wanted to hear (or had heard from other lawyers). Aware of the complexity of my case, they made the process as easy and smooth as possible and explained to me what was needed and expected of me.

    Fees are reasonable and explained to you upfront or as they come (e.g., expedited process fees and documents).
