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
Shorstein, Lasnetski, & Gihon will contact ICE and present a detailed bond memorandum with exhibits and documentary evidence designed to secure the release of your loved one.  If ICE refuses to give the person a bond, Shorstein, Lasnetski, & Gihon will file a Motion for Bond Redetermination with the Immigration Court and argue the bond motion before an Immigration Judge.
