Immigration Bond
Attorney Michele Da Silva is an aggressive immigration attorney with extensive immigration experience. If you or a loved one is currently in Removal Proceedings, it is important that you speak with an immigration attorney who understands the complexity of the immigration system so that you may be properly informed of your options and qualifications for being released from custody on an immigration bond or reconsideration of bond amount.

What You Should Know​
Immigration bond is designed to guarantee the appearance of the detainee (alien) at all hearings before the Immigration Court. The Immigration Judge will determine whether the alien may be released on bond. The Judge in making his determination will look at various factors such as the alien’s family ties in the United States; criminal history; employment history; financial ability to pay a bond; membership in community organizations; how the alien came to, and how long has been in, the United States; whether the alien has committed any immoral acts or participated in subversive activities; and the alien’s eligibility for relief from removal.

Assuming that detention is not mandatory, such as in the cases of arriving aliens, criminals or terrorist, the alien may petition the court to be released on personal recognance or on a determined bond amount. Immigration bonds are immediately forfeited (given up) if the detainee does not appear for a required hearing. Usually when you are taken into custody, your bond will be set by Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE). If ICE does not set a bond for you, you can apply for a bond determination hearing with an Immigration Judge. You do not have to wait for ICE to issue a Notice to Appear (NTA)—you can apply for a bond as soon as you are taken into custody.

If ICE sets your bond in an amount that you think is too high, you can apply for a bond redetermination hearing with an Immigration Judge. After the Immigration Judge sets your bond (or decides that you are not eligible for bond), you may appeal the Immigration Judge’s decision to the Board of Immigration Appeals.

If, after your bond redetermination hearing, you still disagree with your bond amount, you can apply for another bond redetermination hearing. However, you can only apply for another bond redetermination hearing if your circumstances have significantly changed since your prior bond redetermination hearing.

Your bond case is separate from your immigration case. However, even if you get released on bond, you must show up for all hearings before the Immigration Court. Having an experience Immigration attorney on your team may mean the difference in being released on person recognance versus having to wait for your case while in custody.
