Detention & Bond Hearings
Our Immigration Attorneys Are Here for You
At Diamondback Legal, we know how scary and devastating it is to be detained and placed in a detention center by U.S. Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE). If this has happened to you or a loved one, you may be feeling alone and overwhelmed. You are not alone in this. We are here to help by fighting aggressively to reunite our clients with their families. Our Phoenix bond hearings lawyers can help you determine your eligibility to be released on an immigration bond, and we will be by your side throughout the hearing process.
Immigration Bond Eligibility
If you are an immigrant and have been detained, you may be able to seek an immigration bond. An immigration bond allows you to continue your immigration case without being held in an ICE detention center. During your bond hearing, the Immigration Court will determine your eligibility and your bond amount.
Every case is unique, and therefore, it is vital that you work with an experienced attorney who can help you prepare for your hearing.
Immigration Bond Eligibility Factors
When determining your bond, the immigration court will consider certain factors including:
- Ties to the community, including your family
- Employment status
- Property ownership
- Current immigration status
- Criminal record, if you have one
- Deportation history
At your hearing, the court will also hear evidence regarding your moral character and whether or not you are at risk of not attending your court proceedings outside of detention. During your bond hearing, your attorney will help you put your best foot forward with the Immigration Court, and help you demonstrate your eligibility to be released on bond. If your bond is granted, you will then need to pay the court the determined amount.
After You Receive Your Bond
Once you have been released, you will need to continue attending any court hearings regarding your immigration process. Failure to attend your subsequent hearings can result in the forfeiture of your bond, and you will not get that money back. Our immigration bond hearing attorney in Phoenix can help you throughout this process. We know how traumatic it can be to be detained by ICE. At Diamondback Legal, we are committed to helping our clients through this complicated process from start to finish. When you need an aggressive lawyer who can help you feel confident in court, call us.
