Generally, individuals who are denied entry into the U.S. or who are undergoing removal proceedings are held in detention pending a final determination in their case. Unfortunately, with the backlog of cases around the U.S., individuals could find themselves detained for months before a hearing in their case. If your family member has been detained in a detention facility, getting them released is probably your top priority. You may be able to get them released quickly by paying a bond. An experienced immigration lawyer can help you file a motion for a bond hearing and represent you during the proceedings. For more information about filing a motion for bond, contact the skilled Nevada immigration lawyers at Janda Law.

What is an Immigration Bond?

When a non-US citizen is detained by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), they may be released on bond pending the final determination of removal proceedings. An initial bond is set by DHS, and the detainee may request a bond hearing before an immigration judge to redetermine the amount of bond set by DHS.

A bond hearing is just like any other court process with its own procedures for requesting and conducting a hearing. A skilled immigration lawyer will be able to advise on whether an immigration judge can hold a bond hearing in a particular case and an individual’s chances of success in a bond hearing.

What Does the Judge Consider in a Bond Hearing?

When considering a request for a bond, an immigration judge will consider several factors in determining whether the individual is eligible for a bond. If the individual is eligible for a bond, then the next determination is whether to release the individual from detention. To make a decision on the individual’s release, the immigration judge will consider:

  • whether the individual’s release would pose a danger to others
  • whether the individual is likely to appear for further immigration proceedings
  • whether the respondent is a threat to national security

The judge will make a determination based on the evidence presented in your case. That’s why you need an immigration lawyer with experience filing and arguing motions for a bond. Our immigration law team at Janda Law has the experience and resources to protect your interest in the bond hearing process.
