Bond Hearings in Immigration Courts

Release from Detention through Immigration Bond

One of the most heartbreaking situations for immigrants and their loved ones is when an immigrant is arrested and placed into detention by U.S. Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE). This is the largest investigative agency of the Department of Homeland Security.

If a friend or beloved family member of yours has been placed into detention, he or she has a right to obtain prompt legal representation. The phoenix immigration lawyer at Maria Jones Law Firm have a well-earned reputation for helping those who seek freedom from detention.

A Florence immigration lawyer is on call, 24-hours a day, 7 days a week, at 602.626.3296 , to assist families of detained immigrants.

Eligibility for Immigration Bond

A foreign national or lawful permanent resident who is detained by ICE is called a detainee.

The detainee may qualify to be released on bond depending on his or her criminal and deportation history and current immigration status. Detainee must establish that he or she does not pose a flight risk and does not present a danger to society.

He generally cannot request a bond hearing if he or she:

Is deemed by the judge to be an “arriving alien”
Has committed certain aggravated felonies
Is involved in terrorism or anti-government activities

What is an Immigration Bond?

An immigration bond is a monetary amount set by an immigration Judge or by ICE.

Motion for Speedy Bond Hearing

Once our attorneys at Maria Jones Law Firm determine your eligibility for bond, we will file a Motion for Speedy Bond Hearing for you, and will schedule a hearing in front of the immigration judge.

During the hearing, our firm will present evidence to the judge that highlights your eligibility for bond, including your ties to family and community, proof of stable employment, property ownership, evidence of good moral character and your ability to pay the bond.

If bond is granted, it may be set for amounts ranging from between $1,500 to $20,000, and sometimes more depending on the Judge and submitted documents.

What Happens after Bond is Granted?

After you pay the bond you will be released from detention. After the bond is posted, it acts as security. You must fulfill your obligations by attending all future court hearings. If for some reason you are unable to fulfill your obligations, your bond will be forfeited (turned over) to the court and you will not get the bond money back.
