Immigration detention comes with important decisions

On Behalf of | May 31, 2019 | Immigration Detention

Having to deal with immigration officials can be a challenging situation. Not only do you need to know applicable immigration laws, but you may also have to deal with a language barrier. These can make everything more complicated. When you have a loved one who is in this position, you need to find out how you can help them. We are here to work with you to determine what options are present in your loved one’s case.

One thing that you must remember is that most people who are being detained will have to post a bond when they are released. This is money that must be paid to ensure that the person will attend court dates in the future. If they do, they will likely get the money back. If they don’t appear when necessary, the bond is lost.

There are some cases that might be ineligible for a bond. When your loved one is being detained, you need to find out if they are awaiting a bond to be set or if they are ineligible. If they are ineligible, we must determine why they aren’t. We can help you find out the options from there.

Always think about what impacts might come from the options you choose. For example, court dates might come faster if the person is detained; however, your loved one might enjoy being out to wait on these. Finding out what the detainee’s goals are for their case can help you know what to do. We are here to help you put a plan into action and protect their rights.
