In general, it can take days or weeks to have an immigration bond hearing. The entire cancellation of removal process can extend into years. In all cases, it makes sense to speak with a deportation attorney as soon as possible. You may only have one chance to get a bond and a mistake can result in removal!
Should you want to know more about the cancellation/bond process, read below for all the requirements and exclusions so that you can be best prepared for the process.
To get a bond, an immigration judge will determine whether or not the person is eligible. A person who has a prior deportation order may not usually be eligible to obtain a bond. A person who the judge feels is a flight risk or a danger to the community will be found ineligible. The judge is free to consider any evidence available to them to determine flight risk or danger.
The judge will also consider whether or not the person was caught crossing the border or has established residence in the United States. Someone apprehended crossing the border is usually ineligible to receive a bond. That being said, it is possible to get a bond even if you do not have all of the requirements to cancel removal under 42(b).
For example, a person who has been convicted of a DUI offense may be considered a danger to the community and an immigration judge can deny a bond for that reason. Someone who does not have an immediate relative who is US Citizen or Legal Permanent Resident may be considered a flight risk because they do not qualify for 42(b) cancellation of removal.
As such, there is no way to know in advance how a judge will rule in a bond case.
That being said, there are a number of crimes that make it impossible to obtain a bond and/or 42(b) cancellation. These offenses are called Aggravated Felonies. If the person seeking bond has one of the following convictions, they will not be eligible to receive a bond.
These Crimes Make Getting a Bond Impossible:
If a bond is granted, the next step is the out of custody42(b) process. This is distinct process and the requirements can be confusing. Here are the questions that we must ask to determine whether or not a person in eligible to cancel their removal. In short, it is very difficult to list all the ways you can win a removal hearing, the questions below give the framework that the judge will consider.
Please keep in mind that if you receive a bond, but do not qualify for 42(b) cancellation, you will not be eligible to obtain a work permit. We hope that this letter helps you better understand your case.
