How a Bond Works in Immigration Cases

Bonds are used in most cases in the American criminal justice system, regardless of whether the defendant is an immigrant or not. After an arrest, the presiding judge can set bail—an amount of money the defendant can put up to secure their freedom before the trial (or, in immigration cases, the removal hearing). When a third party posts the bail on behalf of the defendant, it is referred to as a bond. 

The bond hearing is done to determine whether or not the defendant will be granted the opportunity to secure temporary freedom. 

It’s important to note that a bond hearing is not automatically granted as part of the legal process. It must be applied for by the defendant. Defendants are able to fill out this application themselves, but our Laredo immigration bond attorneys can provide valuable assistance in making certain the paperwork is properly filed and documented, with the goal of expediting the hearing.

What Happens at a Bond Hearing

Immigration judges consider numerous factors when determining whether to grant an immigrant's bond request, including their family and community ties in the U.S., employment history, criminal record, immigration violations, potential options for relief, financial resources, and length of time in the country. The judge will weigh these positive factors against any perceived dangers to the community or threats to national security posed by granting the bond.

The judge will then schedule a hearing to specifically address the bail issue. This hearing is different from a removal hearing under a Notice to Appear (NTA). During the bond hearing, the judge will assess all the factors noted above, and whether there is a likelihood that the individual will return for future hearings if released on bond. If the judge believes the individual is unlikely to keep their promise to return, they may deny a bond request or set it at a very high amount.
