Question
hello my husband had a court hearing yesterday to see if he could get an immigration bond but it was denied my question is what else can i do for him not to get deported and also how long can he last in immigration custody before he gets deported to his country

Answer
Dear Sandy,

1. You should hire an immigration lawyer to look into filing a bond redetermination for your husband.  I am not sure if this was already done at the last hearing, but if it was not, you should do it right away.

2. You should be advised that certain criminal offenses will render your husband ineligible for immigration bond.  I do not have any information about your husband's criminal convictions, if any, so please run this issue through with the immigration lawyer.

3. You should also be advised that repeated violations of immigration law (returning after deportation, failure to attend court in the past, attempts to enter the country illegally) may also render your husband ineligible for bond.  I don't have any information regarding your husband's immigration history, so please run this issue through with the immigration lawyer as well.

4. If he is already been deported (has an order or deportation or removal), how soon he will be deported depends on what country he is from.  Some countries like Mexico result in swift deportation while others like Vietnam takes forever due to government delays.

I hope this helps.
