Each year some immigration detainees are released from custody. By applying for an immigration bond, these detainees can be released from custody. However, the process of applying for an immigration bond is not as easy as it seems. There is a certain process that you have to follow to complete the application process. The following steps will guide you when you are applying for an immigration bond.
The initial step is to know if you have met the minimum threshold which allows you to apply for the immigration bond. You cannot apply for the immigration bond if you have committed a serious crime. If you have been arrested in the past, you should talk to your immigration attorney so that they can advise you on the way forward. The immigration lawyer will advise you whether your past crimes might cost you your immigration bond application. You also have an option to organize a hearing with a judge to life your past crimes if you feel that you were unfairly convicted. This will ensure that your past crimes do not prevent from getting the immigration bond.
The ICE will decide on whether to accept your immigration bond application despite being eligible to apply for the bond. However, an immigration judge also has the authority to make this decision. You have to look at the money the ICE has set aside to be paid as the immigration bond money. You can ask your lawyer whether they can have the immigration bond money reduced if you feel that the amount is a lot. Your attorney should set up a hearing, which will enable the judge to know if you have qualified for the bond or not.
The judge should analyze all the evidence that points you to be a dangerous person. The main role of the lawyer is to show the judge that you are not dangerous to anybody. Your lawyer should also prove to the judge that you have the financial capabilities to live in America. Your lawyer should also prove that you have good ties among your family and community in America. The lawyer should also prove that you understand the American culture and you have good relationships with people.
The judge will look at all the evidence presented before him. The judge will decide on your fate, and if you qualify for a bond, the bond money will be posted. You should pay the bond once the bond has been posted and your attorney can help you with the process.
