Boston Immigration Bond Hearing Lawyer
Immigrants who are charged with a crime face the possibility of deportation and removal. After an arrest, you may be detained by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency. It is important to have a clear understanding of your rights and the potential consequences that you may face.
Sarah Vitelli is a Boston immigration bond hearing attorney who is dedicated to providing clients with experienced advocacy and an aggressive defense at bond and removal hearings. Her priority is to intervene as soon as possible to help you or a loved one obtain release from immigration detention.
Are You Eligible to Request a Bond Hearing?
Any immigrant who is not attempting to illegally enter the United States or is not considered to be a terrorist threat is allowed to request a bond hearing. However, there are limitations for immigrants with criminal histories. Attorney Vitelli will review the facts of your case, determine your bond eligibility, and, if possible, file a motion for a speedy bond hearing with an appropriate immigration judge. The judge will weigh all of the following when making a bond determination:
- Whether the immigrant is a danger to the community
- Any criminal history
- Possibility of flight risk
- Employment history
- Ability to pay bond
- Involvement in community
- Immigration history
Bond amounts typically range from $1,500 to $20,000, although higher amounts are possible. If you or someone you love has been placed in a holding cell in Massachusetts or New Hampshire, attorney Vitelli can file a bond redetermination motion on your behalf. She will make an appearance in front of a judge at the Immigration Court in Boston, collect all relevant evidence in your case and attend a hearing. At the hearing, she will argue for a release on bond at a more reasonable amount.
