U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) offices may exercise prosecutorial discretion, addressing their most urgent cases before those that are lower priority. Special circumstances may be considered. Victims of domestic violence, individuals who have been in the U.S. for an extended period of time, seniors and people with other special circumstances may be able to benefit from prosecutorial discretion.
Through prosecutorial discretion, individuals who thought their options were limited may be able to obtain their desired immigration status. Certain individuals’ immigration cases may be put on hold. Enough time may pass that immigration laws may change, and more options may become available in that time.
To learn more about the prosecutorial discretion process and how it can affect your immigration case, please contact a Los Angeles prosecutorial discretion attorney from our firm.
What Is Prosecutorial Discretion?
Through prosecutorial discretion, an immigration authority is given the authority to exercise his or her discretion in an immigration case. A high-priority case may be addressed sooner than a low-priority one, regardless of the duration of the case.
