Shorstein, Lasnetski, & Gihon handles immigration bond hearings at the Orlando Immigration Court and Folkston ICE Processing Center.
In any deportation case, a person may be eligible for an Immigration bond if he or she is not subject to Mandatory Detention under immigration law. ICE may give the person a bond if they determine the person is not a flight risk or a danger.
When ICE first comes into contact with a person they are going to place in deportation proceedings, they first issues a Notice To Appear (NTA) to the person. This is the charging document. ICE will next make a custody determination. They will take several factors into consideration when determining whether to issue the person a bond, including:
- whether detainee has a fixed address in the U.S
- length of residence in the U.S.
- local family ties and whether ties may entitle detainee to reside in U.S.
- record of appearances in court
- employment history
- criminal record
- history of immigration violations
- attempts to flee prosecution or escape
- manner of entry
- membership in community organizations
- immoral acts or participation in subversive activities
- financial ability to post bond
