If you are detained by immigration authorities, you may be eligible to apply for a bond. Don’t walk into the courtroom alone, as the procedure and documentation can be complex and intimidating. M.A. Morgan & Associates is prepared to stand by your side and fight for your freedom. Bond Eligibility depends on a number of factors including: (1) length of time in the United States; (2) criminal history; (3) ties to the community; and  (4) eligibility for immigration benefits. 

Ultimately, the Immigration Judge must determine that you are not a flight risk and you do not pose a danger to the community. For more details on factors impacting immigration bond proceedings, please read the summary provided below.

Immigration Bond Factors

  • Length of Time in the United States

    A lengthier period of time in the United States tends to support the position that you are a good candidate for bond. For example, an individual who has lived in the United States for 10+ years with no criminal history would not appear to pose a danger to the community nor would such an individual present a flight risk.

  • Criminal History

    Recent arrest history and criminal convictions alike can adversely impact the outcome in bond proceedings. The Immigration Judge will only grant a bond only after determining that you do not pose a danger to the community. Some criminal convictions (e.g. controlled substance offenses) can automatically disqualify you for bond consideration.

  • Ties to the Community

    If you have extensive familial and property ties in the United States, this factor will weigh in your favor when the Immigration Judge considers whether or not you are a flight risk (i.e. your likelihood of attending future court proceedings) should he grant a bond. This factor may also impact your eventual eligibility for immigration benefits, as many immigration benefits require a qualifying family member (e.g. a United States citizen spouse).

  • Eligibility for Immigration Benefits

    If you appear to meet the basic requirements to qualify for an immigration benefit, this factor will weigh in your favor when the Immigration Judge considers your likelihood of attending future court proceedings should he grant a bond. In short, eligibility for immigration benefits depends on some of the following factors: number of “legal” family members in the United States; length of time you have been living in the United States; the method in which you entered the United States; and your criminal history in.
