South Carolina Immigration Bond Attorney
What is an Immigration Bond?
A bond is not a fine. Instead, it is a guarantee to the government that if you are let out of detention, you will go to all of your hearings and will obey the judge’s order at the end of the case. To be let out of the detention center “on bond,” you or a friend or relative must pay the bond money to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). If you go to all your immigration hearings or interviews, whoever paid your bond will receive the money back when your case is over. If you lose your case, you must report to DHS for departure when required or you will not receive the bond money back.
Paying your bond does not buy you absolute freedom. If you get out on bond, it is not the end of your case. You still have to attend all your hearings outside of detention. If you miss even one immigration hearing, you can be ordered removed (or “deported”) without the chance to give evidence to the judge or apply for permission to stay in the U.S.
Do I Qualify for a Bond? Can I ask the Judge to Lower my Bond?
The answer to this question is: maybe. Not everyone qualifies for an immigration bond.
