Connecticut Motions for Immigration Bond Attorney

Dedicated Legal Advocates Serving Clients in Connecticut

After an immigrant is detained for illegally crossing the border, there are two separate legal proceedings they can attend to present their case. The first is the immigration proceeding, which determines whether the immigrant should be deported from the United States or allowed to stay while their case is processing. The other legal proceeding is called a bond hearing. During this hearing, the judge will decide if the immigrant should be held in detention while their case is pending.

But did you know that you must ask for a bond hearing yourself? ICE agents and immigration judges are not obligated to inform you about this option, instead, you have to make a formal request by submitting the following things to the immigration court:

  • A written request for an immigration bond hearing
  • Alien registration number
  • A Notice to Appear
  • The name of the detention center you are being kept at

What Disqualifies Me for a Bond Hearing?

According to Section 236c of the Immigration and Nationality Act, the following criminal violations will disqualify you from being approved for an immigration bond:

  • Crimes of moral turpitude
  • Convictions resulting in imprisonment for five years or longer
  • Controlled substance offenses
  • Prostitution-related offenses
  • Terrorist activity
  • Human trafficking
  • Money laundering
