Everything You Need to Know Before Your Immigration Bond Hearing

Attending and succeeding with an immigration appeal can be one of the most stressful experiences in your life. You may be stuck inside an immigration detention center where you are under stress and cannot operate properly.

The good news is that many people will have the right to post a bond at an immigration bond hearing. This will allow you to pay a predetermined amount to leave the detention center, as long as you appear at all following hearings.

If you are concerned that you will be placed in a detention center in the near future, please read this article to learn more about bond hearings and how they can help you.

Can I Post A Bond?

Not everyone is allowed to post an immigration bond. There are a couple of considerations that the judge must make before he allows you to post any money.

Firstly, you must prove to your judge that you are not a danger to the community.

You may also not be allowed to post a bond if the judge considers you to be a flight risk. If they believe that you will go into hiding in an attempt to stay in the country, they won't let you post bond.

If you have any previous criminal convictions, it is likely that you will not be allowed to post a bond.

Even if you may be technically eligible to post a bond, don't rest on your laurels. The decision will ultimately be for the judge to decide.

If they don't think that you're telling the truth during the hearing or has reasons to doubt your answers, they may decide not to allow you to post a bond.

Even if your bond is not granted, rest assured that there are still options available to you.

How Do You Get A Bond Hearing?

The key here is to communicate with a judge as early as possible. You can do this in writing or at the first immigration hearing.

During the first hearing, make the judge aware that you wish to have a bond hearing immediately.

Alternatively, you can send your judge a bond hearing request letter. 

The key here is that the bond hearing is separate from the immigration hearing, even though it is often the very same judge involved.

Never Miss A Bond Hearing

If you take any advice from this article at all, it is that you should never miss a bond hearing. The consequences could be huge if you miss even one of these court appointments.

You have to understand that even after you have posted a bond, all subsequent hearings remain compulsory. There is a big risk that if you do not attend any of the follow-up hearings, the court judge could simply decide to have you deported in your absence.

Not only will you miss the chance to state your case to the judge that you should remain in the country, but you'll also lose all of the money that you posted as a bond.

So make sure that your kids are with a relative, and everyone knows that you have unmissable dates in your diary coming up.

Once you have been successful in being granted a bond figure, you can no concentrate on paying your bond. 

Stay On Top At Your Bond Hearing

Immigration proceedings can be an extremely tough time for both you and your loved ones. With a bit of help, it doesn't have to be, however.

As long as you are aware of the legal process, you can get yourself an immigration bond hearing and get out of the detention center. This may be the first step to sorting out your immigration issues.
