What Is an Immigration Bond?

An immigration bond is an amount of money set by the ICE that the detained individual must pay in order to be released from detention. The release is based on an implied agreement that the bonded individual will attend his or her court hearings, and the bond amount acts as a guarantee of the agreement. This means that if the bonded individual attends all required legal proceedings, he or she will receive that bond money back. However, if he or she flees or fails to attend, the money will be lost.

Am I Eligible for Bond?

In most cases, you should be eligible for bond. However, detained foreign nationals must submit to mandatory detention if they have committed certain serious crimes, and will not be eligible for release on bond.

If you have been convicted of any of the following crimes, you will not be eligible for an immigration bond:

  • Aggravated felony
  • Crimes of moral turpitude, which are defined loosely, but typically refer to murder, rape, spousal or child abuse, kidnapping, robbery, and other similar crimes.
  • Suspected of terrorism
  • Possession of controlled substances (excepting 30 grams or less of marijuana)

Our team also practices removal defense, and will not hesitate to aggressively defend you if you are ineligible for bond because of a criminal conviction.

Case Results

Results That Speak for Themselves

  • Approved for Adjustment of Status Family Member Adjustment of Status Granted

    Our client wanted to apply for adjustment of status via the 245i form, based on her sister’s US Citizenship that was granted many years prior to our case.

  • Secured Their Green Cards H2B to LPR

    After successfully getting Form 9089 certified by the Dept of Labor for supervisory positions with the company, we were able to reach out to the employees and work with the company to submit an I-140/I-485 petition which was successfully approved.

  • Waiver Approved I-601A Waiver

    Waver was pending for almost one year, but it was approved and we are currently working on consular processing.

  • Received Certificate of Citizenship N-600

    This LPR client came to us worried about naturalizing because she had a bad criminal record and her naturalization application would probably be denied. After a thorough review of her family history, we realized she was already a US citizen through the Child Citizenship Act.

    We were able to work with his new manager to put together the needed information about their business, required licenses, and his ability to secure a new P1 visa for 3 years.

  • Released from ICE / Pending Work Permit Removal (Bond Motion)

    Immigrant had a prior order of removal from over 10 years ago. He was detained by ICE again and his US citizen wife hired us to try to get him out. We filed a Motion To Reopen his In Absentia Order with the immigration court in New Orleans, Louisiana.

  • Green Card was Granted Same-Sex, Marriage-Based Adjustment of Status

    The petition did not have any red flags but the USCIS officer interviewed them separately (Stokes Interview) and asked incredibly specific and detailed questions about their finances, work history, and friends and family.

  • Filed for I-918 U-Visa Petition U Visa Certification

    Re-submitted the request, along with the USCIS regulations noting that she had met the requirements in having provided assistance as well as her state of mind following the incident.

  • Renew Existing I-765 While Pending VAWA & I-48 VAWA

    We submitted her application, received a prima facie determination, and asked for her marriage-based I-485 to be held in abeyance until the I-360 VAWA petition could be approved.
