Arrest or Detention of a U.S. Citizen Abroad

Guía publicada por:

One of the highest priorities of our firm is to provide assistance to U.S. citizens incarcerated abroad.

Devoument Group Lawyers Enterprises is committed to ensuring fair and humane treatment for U.S. citizens imprisoned overseas. Devoument Group Lawyers stand ready to assist incarcerated citizens and their families within the limits in accordance with international law, domestic and foreign law.  When a U.S. citizen is arrested overseas, he or she may be initially confused and disoriented. It can be more difficult because the prisoner is in unfamiliar surroundings, and may not know the local language, customs, or legal system.  We can: 

  • Try to get the U.S. citizens out of jail. 
  • State to a court that the arrested one is innocent.
  • Provide legal advice or represent U.S. citizens in court. 
  • Serve as a interpreters or translators.
  • Provide attorneys who speak English.
  • Contact family, friends, or employers of the detained U.S. citizen with their written permission.
  • Help ensure that prison officials are providing appropriate medical care. 
  • Provide a especific overview of the local criminal justice process.
  • Inform the detainee of available local and U.S.-based resources to assist victims of crime.
  • Help the embassy to establish an OCS Trust, when no other means to send funds are available so friends and family can transfer funds to imprisoned U.S. citizen.
