Determining if you are Eligible for an Immigration Bond

Home » Immigration Help & Resources » Determining if you are Eligible for an Immigration Bond

At US Immigration Bond & Insurance Services, we have helped many families through the detainment process and we realize that it is a stressful, anxiety ridden time of uncertainty. Having a loved one detained or personally being detained by ICE is comparable to being imprisoned, leaving families in a mad scramble to get life back on track and always wondering what is next? The providers of immigration bonds nationwide know that you will not be able to make any progress until the detainee attends immigration court and is deemed eligible or ineligible for an immigration bond.

Naturally, you will want to determine if you are going to be eligible for a bond before the judge makes his decision. Figuring out whether you are or not you are eligible for an immigration bond is extremely complicated. Your eligibility for bond depends on whether you have been lawfully admitted into the United States. Even if you are not eligible for an immigration bail bond, you will still have a chance to fight the case filed against you during detainment and remain in the United States.

While the ultimate decision is left up the immigration judge, you should assume that you are eligible for bond. Expert immigration bail bondsmen in Texas believe that you should assume that you are not eligible for bond only if you fall into one of the following categories:

1. You were detained by immigration authorities while attempting to enter the United States through a port of entry such as:

  • Airports
  • US-Canada Border
  • US-Mexico Border
  • American Beaches

In these cases, you will able to apply for “parole” from the immigration authorities. You can contact the National Immigrant Justice Center for more information on the process.

2. If you had convictions that can be considered moral turpitude, you will not be eligible for an immigration bond.

3. You have one or more conviction charges of drug possession or an offense relating to firearms.

4. If you have ever been convicted of an aggravated felony. Some examples of aggravated felonies include:

  • Drug trafficking, including possession with to sell or deliver, or the manufacturing and selling of drugs
  • Offenses related to firearms trafficking
  • Rape
  • Sexual abuse of a minor or possession of child pornography
  • Murder or attempted murder
  • Felony alien smuggling (not including husband, wife, child, or parent)
  • Fraud or income tax evasion
  • Money laundering (over $10,000)

If you received more than 1 year of jail time, these charges are also aggravated felonies:

  • Theft
  • Burglary
  • A violent crime (including theft of force being used against a person or property)
  • Documentation fraud (unless it was the first offense and you did it to help a husband, wife, child, or parent)
  • Obstruction of justice, perjury, bribing a witness

US immigration Bonds and Insurance Services wants to note that these are not all of the crimes that could prevent you from being eligible for an immigration bond, just the more common ones. If you are unsure whether or not you fall into one or more of these categories, you can still request a hearing and an immigration judge will explain your eligibility.

US immigration bonds were absolutely the best they were super professional. When I was down and out when my husband was detained by immigration they were very caring , knowledgeable, and patient. I called them a thousand times and they were very empathic and helpful everytime I called. they reassures me that everything would be fine, and that they would help me my husband, and my children be reunited again. They did everything they could to get me a same day release. They exceeded my expectations. I would not recommend any company other than US immigration bonds. Us immigration bonds, under promises and over fulfills. They were a true blessing ! Thank you so much again.read more

Jeremy Wolf and his agency have been a terrific resource for me as I delve into this foreign world of bonding a friend out of jail so he and his wife can work on his case on the "outside." Jeremy has been unfailingly polite and informative and his video regarding how to complete the necessary forms was a valuable tool too. The entire process was quick and relatively easy. I especially appreciated not having to deal with a jaded, impatient, figure--it-out-yourself kind of person when I was treading in really unfamiliar territory. My questions were always answered quickly and efficiently.I highly recommend this company in your time of need for quick, efficient and professional service with no attitude or delay.read more

Jeremy Wolf, is compassionate and understanding. He has been there and done it with his own family, and together with his wife they dedicate their time and energy into helping other families come together. I know this because my husband was taken by ICE and his bond was set much higher than I could have imagined, having in my hands at any given time. ... With Jeremy, his wife and the rest of the team we were able to piece together the required 80% and set up a affordable and convient payment plan. It was a grueling process, at times I felt like I was going to loose all my hair, as I ran around selling homemade tamales, and had various other fund raisers going on, along with my husband being detained, I lost my home, my dog and my daughter and I pushed forward with the help and support of Jeremy and his team, if It wasn't for there hours of help and dedication, to put a previous bond for my nephew into action to help my husband, we wouldn't have been able to have him home for the Holidays. ... To Jeremy, Veronica, and Amber, who I spoke with often, and the other parts of the team who I was unable to catch their names, I THANK YOU, FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!read more
