A family member of yours has just been taken into custody by Immigration and Customs Enforcement. You’re not sure when the court hearing will be scheduled and you don’t like the idea of a family member being detained. You want to use an immigration bond to set them free. But a bond amount hasn’t been set. Can you do something about it?
When an immigrant is detained by ICE, the agency may set a bond amount to get the person out of custody. However, if no bond has been set, your family member does have the opportunity to ask for a bond by asking for a bond hearing with the immigration judge. At the hearing, your loved one can ask the judge to either set a bond or lower the bond if it’s been set too high.
It’s important to show the judge at this hearing that your family member is not a flight risk or a danger to the community. It helps if you and the rest of your family and friends are present at the hearing or bring evidence. Some of the evidence you can send your family member includes:
- Copies of any Legal Permanent Resident cards, U.S. birth certificates or naturalization certificates of your family members
- Copies of the receipt or approval notices from immigration applications that have been filed for the family member
- Proof of property that your family member may own in the U.S.
- Proof of legal employment
- Letters of support from family, friends, and members of the community
The judge may ask questions about your loved one’s immigration status, work history, and criminal record. If the judge is convinced that your loved one won’t disappear or is threat to society, a bond will be set.
