Lawyer for Immigration Bond Hearings in Houston

Aggressive Legal Help for Detainees in Texas

If you or a loved one has been detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), you are most likely anxious to get released back to your family. Immigration detention can be a very stressful and frightening experience and you will need not only the support of your family but that of an experienced immigration attorney as well.

Phone our firm for a consultation about your detention case at (713) 597-5642 today. You can also contact us online.

In order to be released quickly, you will need to pay a bond to the court. You may request a bond hearing with the immigration judge. At Galaviz Law Firm, PLLC, we can prepare and submit a motion to the judge for such a hearing making your case as to why it should be allowed. Our Houston attorney is highly-experienced in all immigration matters, including those involving detention, bond hearings, and deportation proceedings in court.

Immigration Bond Hearings in Texas

A bond is like an insurance policy that states that you will appear at all future court dates. If you fail to do so, the amount of money you or your family put up for the bond will be forfeited.

Not everyone detained by immigration officials will be allowed a bond order to obtain their immediate release. What happens at this point will depend on your current status, the reasons you were detained, and other factors involved in your case. Certain individuals will not be granted a bond order if they fall into specific categories.

Those who are not eligible for a bond include:

  • Non-citizens attempting to re-enter the U.S. after being outside the country
  • Those who have entered the U.S. unlawfully
  • Saboteurs, spies, and terrorists
  • Those with criminal convictions, such as drug crimes, violent crimes, and crimes of moral turpitude

Should you qualify for a bond, the immigration judge will decide whether or not to grant you the bond based on the facts of your case and whether or not you present a flight risk or a danger to national security. Factors that the judge will consider are your family ties here, record of employment, criminal history, and whether you qualify for any type of deportation relief, such as a waiver. Should your bond order be granted, the judge will decide the amount that you will need to put up for the bond.

For legal assistance with bond hearings, contact Galaviz Law Firm, PLLC at (713) 597-5642. Our Houston immigration attorney is always available.
