Release from Detention & Bond Hearing

The Law Office of Patricia M. Machado, P.C. works with clients to get up to speed on the removal proceedings and seek a release. The process for this involves requesting a bond hearing from the judge. Not everyone is eligible for a release on bond, so it’s important that you have a legal professional on your side who can help argue there are is valid cause to do so.

- You have committed certain crimes including violence or drug sale
- You were involved in an activity considered to be a threat to national security
- You failed to be lawfully admitted into the country
