The first thing an immigration attorney considers is if the detained person is eligible for posting a bond. It is the best way to get released from the detention while the removal proceeding is underway. The money for the bond should be deposited by a lawful Georgia resident with valid identity and proof of valid immigration status. This person is known as “obligor,” he is responsible to ensure that the migrant detainee presents himself before authorities whenever required.
The bond is payable to the Department of Homeland Security and should be in the form of a cashier’s check or US postal money order. People without serious criminal charges or a previous history of detention stand a good chance to seek release by posting a bond. One’s immigration history also plays a part in determining eligibility. However, the amount for a bond is set by immigration authorities. An immigration attorney determines if you are entitled to it and file a motion for a bond hearing or a reduced bond appeal.
