Los Angeles Immigration Detention Lawyer

If you have an INS hold, you can be held in a U.S. government detention facility for months until you are allowed a hearing before an immigration judge to determine whether you can be deported. It may be possible to be released from detention by posting a bond issued either by an ICE officer or the Immigration Judge. This works exactly like posting bail after an arrest to be released from jail until your trial.

If you or a loved one has been detained by the INS and needs a bond, contact the Law Offices of Gita B. Kapur to schedule a free initial consultation with an experienced Los Angeles immigration detention attorney. Call toll free at 866-643-8852.

Whether you will be allowed to post bond depends on your immigration status and why you have been detained. In considering a bond, the immigration judges will look at the following factors:

  • Family ties in the United States
  • Whether you have a criminal background
  • Employment history
  • Financial circumstances
  • Whether you own real property in the U.S.
  • Moral character
  • Length of time you have been in the United States
  • Whether you are a flight risk

The minimum amount of a bond is $1,500 but it can be much higher than that. There are certain crimes that require mandatory detention and make you ineligible for a bond. These crimes include crimes of violence and moral turpitude (dishonesty, such as fraud).
