Getting Immigration Bond
Convincing an immigration judge to grant a reasonable bond has become as important as the immigration case itself. Unlike criminal bonds, immigration bonds are not automatically given and usually are obtained through a contested hearing in front of the judge. Judges are permitted to consider a variety of factors in determining whether or not to grant an immigration bond including but not limited to:
a) whether the applicant has a fixed address in the U.S;
b) length of residence in the U.S.;
c) local family ties and whether the ties may entitle the applicant to reside in the U.S.;
d) record of appearances in court;
e) employment history or lack of employment;
f) criminal history;
g) prior immigration violations;
h) manner of entry;
i) membership in community organizations;
j) financial ability to post bond.
