Los Angeles deportation defense & immigration lawyer
A Los Angeles deportation attorney will most likely be needed to help you get bond from your situation.
First, what exactly is a bond? When somebody is in immigration detention, there are procedures that can be used in order for the person to get an order to be able to pay a certain amount so that he or she is released explains Brian Lerner, Los Angeles deportation attorney.
The amount that one can pay in order to be released and to fight their case in immigration in a non-detained facility is known as ‘bond’.
The money, explains the Los Angeles deportation attorney, is to make sure that you go to all of your future hearings.
Brian D. Lerner, Los Angeles deportation attorney, makes clear that if you do not go to your future hearings, or if you do not follow the mandates and instructions of either the Court or ICE, then you just gave a present to Immigration
Otherwise, you will get your money returned once everything is over. Thus, the Los Angeles deportation attorney explains that the bond is really just a loan to immigration.
The procedures for getting bond can vary a bit, but it is generally the same.
Thus, here is what must be done.
Assuming you are in removal proceedings, then the Los Angeles deportation attorney will make a Motion for a Bond Redetermination proceeding.
You will notice that it is a ‘redetermination’, not the initial determination of bond.
The Law Offices of Brian D. Lerner, explains that it is Immigration that first tells you what bond is going to be or that first denies you bond. Only afterwards, the Los Angeles deportation attorney explains, can the Immigration Judge actually ‘change’ or redetermine the amount of the bond or whether you will get bond at all.
Assuming you are qualified for bond, and Immigration initially gave you an amount that has to be paid, the Immigration Judge will usually allow a much lower bond to go forward.
For example, Brian D. Lerner, Los Angeles immigration attorney elaborates that if Immigration states that bond should be in the amount of $10,000, that the Immigration Judge will probably agree to $2,500 or somewhere in that neighborhood.
Therefore, the Los Angeles deportation attorney explains, while it is no pleasure being in detention, you should wait a few days more for the Immigration Judge to make the ruling before you pay the bond.
It could save many thousands of dollars.
Brian Lerner, Los Angeles deportation attorney, states that if you cannot pay the bond, that the case will proceed forward while you or the person you are trying to help remains detained and locked up.
However, Brian Lerner goes on to state that you can find a bondsman.
This would be a local organization that will actually only require 10% of the bond and then require that you voluntarily put a lien on your real property or personal property in order to ensure you pay back the bondsman for his or her agreement to pay the remaining 90% of the bond to Immigration to get you released.
Either way, the Los Angeles deportation attorney explains that once the money is together, you would go to the designated location at Immigration to pay the bond.
Most of the time they do not accept checks.
It will be either be cash or money order. After somebody in your family pays the bond, you will get paperwork that the bond was paid.
Be sure cautions Brian D. Lerner, Los Angeles deportation attorney that you keep the receipt for what you just paid to prove it was actually paid.
Afterwards, the Los Angeles deportation attorney explains will be the processing of the case and then you will be released.
Be sure advises the Los Angeles deportation attorney that you calendar your next date for Court so that you do not miss it and get an order of deportation in absentia.
The Los Angeles deportation attorney explains that in some cases, bond is not an option and in those cases, the people will be mandatorily detained.
This means that the laws themselves prohibit the Immigration Judge from agreeing to any bond in any amount and that the person who is detained cannot be released under bond.
If this is your case, then you will have to fight your case while being detained.
The Law Offices of Brian D. Lerner explains that while it is no pleasure being detained in Immigration Detention, that it is many times your only realistic chance to fight your case.
Otherwise, you will just either agree to get a deportation order and/or to be voluntary deported.
It is generally more difficult, explains the Los Angeles deportation attorney to fight your case from outside the U.S.
There are also forms of relief you most likely qualify for here in the U.S.
While in removal proceedings that you would not qualify for outside the U.S. Thus, if you have to fight your case while in detention, then that is what must be done explains the Los Angeles Deportation Attorney.
During the Bond Redetermination proceeding, the Immigration Judge will receive evidence and argument that cannot be used later in proceedings.
Thus, at the Bond Redetermination proceeding, explain Brian Lerner, Los Angeles deportation attorney, you will have to admit to the crimes you have done and to other matters you would never admit to in the Immigration proceedings.
However, the Los Angeles deportation attorney makes crystal clear that you must prove that you will not be a danger to society and that you will make it to all your hearings and that you actually qualify for bond in the first place and that you are not under mandatory detention.
The Los Angeles deportation attorney will provide the necessary forms with all of the required information.
Afterwards, while in front of the Immigration Judge, the Los Angeles deportation attorney will argue all of the necessary items and elements of a Bond Redetermination hearing in front of the Judge.
You will want to make sure you have a Los Angeles deportation attorney argue your case and present eligibility so you do not needlessly stay in detention or pay a much higher bond than would otherwise be required. In reality, it will be unlikely you can do this yourself.
Thus, when ready, either you or your family should hire an experienced and dedicated Los Angeles deportation attorney.
