Defendants who are charged with criminal offenses can face extradition. This action involves the surrender of the alleged criminal to the place where the crime actually occurred. International extradition can be carried out after a federal crime has allegedly taken place and the defendant is sent to the country where the offense occurred. It is typically carried out in conjunction with a treaty that has been signed between two countries.
There are three parties involved in an international extradition process:
The United States can request to have an individual delivered into the country or to deliver an individual to a foreign country that requested the defendant.
At the Law Offices of Richard Tendler, our West Palm Beach extradition lawyer can challenge the international extradition if a U.S. federal law enforcement agency seeks to extradite you from the United States or to the United States.
Our firm has 15 years of experience addressing the regulations associated with extradition matters and working with other countries. We can use our background to maximize your chance of preventing extradition.
Extradition can be requested for various criminal violations, such as white collar crimes. Charges that result in extradition are often political offenses or are related to drug abuse. Because of the serious nature of these offenses, the U.S. State Department will not refuse extradition without a very good reason.
Regardless of the cause of the possible extradition, you will need to obtain powerful legal guidance. Our firm can stand by you through the process and develop a strong case strategy to help you avoid extradition.
Our attentive team is available to fight for you 24 / 7.
