Eligibility for an Immigration Bond
The factors that a judge generally uses in determining the amount of the immigration bond are:

- The risk of flight of the immigrant abroad or to another State
- The immigrant's ties to the United States
- The reason of the immigrant's detention
- The financial ability to post the immigration bond
After the bond hearing, the immigration judge will schedule a new court date, called the Master Calendar hearing, to determine whether the immigrant should be deported from the United States. At that hearing, it is extremely important to be represented by a competent Immigration Lawyer to seek relief from deportation and avoid removal from the United States. Retaining a private attorney is essential, because there is no right to counsel in immigration proceedings, meaning that the immigration court will not appoint an attorney to defend an immigrant.
