BOND MOTIONS –
One of the most difficult situations for immigrants and their loved ones is when a family member is arrested and placed into detention by U.S. Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE). If a friend or beloved family member of yours has been placed in detention, he or she has a right to obtain prompt legal representation.
Determining eligibility for bond can be tricky. Success in obtaining a low bond often depends on knowledge of the law, creativity and maintaining good relationships. Determining who is eligible for bond is learned through practice. Ms. Torres can in most cases, quickly determine eligibility and request the earliest possible hearing to secure a person’s release from custody in an expeditious manner.
Please note, that a person’s criminal history alone does not always mean that a person is subject to mandatory detention. For those who are eligible, they must first present evidence before the court establishing that (1) they do not pose a flight risk, (2) present a danger to society, (3) have relief before the immigration court; (4) are not classified as arriving aliens, and (4) do not have any crimes which make them subject to mandatory detention (such as drug offenses or aggravated felonies).
During a bond hearing, Ms. Torres will highlight a person’s eligibility for bond, including ties to the United States, such as family, proof of stable employment, property ownership, evidence of good moral character, etc. Ms. Torres has earned a reputation for being successful in obtaining bonds for persons with complicated criminal histories.
Once released on bond, a client may then continue fighting their deportation while living at home with their families.
