        How long can an illegal immigrant be held?


        Another question we get asked a lot is how long can an illegal immigrant that’s been detained be held. Typically, for most persons, you’re going to have a bond hearing. A bond hearing is they’re going to ask for some type of money as well as a sponsor to allow you to get out of jail while your case is ongoing because these cases for deportation can sometimes take years, over a year easily. Most people will qualify for that. Some people, unfortunately, cannot afford that amount in which case we can petition the judge again to reduce that amount so that we can get you out while your case is pending. In other circumstances, and it’s very rare, some persons, especially with a very long history or fear that if they are released, they won’t come back, they’ll disappear, they’ll move to another state, they’ll change their identity and they won’t come back to court.

        In those circumstances, the judge can hold you without bond, in which case you may have to stay in detention the entire time until your case is heard, which could be a year or longer. It always depends. For the most part, that’s not something you really – most people will get bonds. Most people will have the opportunity to bond out and to come back to the community until their case is resolved. There is always the odd chance, depending on your history, that you may not, but like with everything with immigration, it’s very fact specific. It depends on each individual circumstance. For the most part, you’ll get bond. The bond hearing is usually within a month easily before you can get out. For the most part, you’ll be out relatively quickly but every circumstance is different. If you have any questions, feel free to give us a call. We’d be happy to discuss it with you.

        “In October 2015, My husband was a passenger in a horrible car accident and was hospitalized for two months. After being in ICU for a little over a month , I reached out to Mr. Corzo and He met me in the hospital a day after. Since my husband was still unconscious and in ICU I decided to hire Mr.Corzo for Davids personal injury and workers compensation case. From the moment I met Mr.Corzo he was very emphatic and attentive to all my questions and concerns. Anytime I would email him with a question he would get back to me right away. I would even email/text his paralegal Denise after hours if I had any questions and she would get back to me within a hour. Mr. Corzo made sure he fully explained and went over everything with us before we made any decisions. Mr. Corzo went out of his way to make sure David was taken care of. After my husband was released from the hospital, Mr. Corzo called and checked up on David and made sure he was getting the care he needed. I truly believe Mr. Corzo went above and beyond for my husband in winning both cases. We are extremely blessed with the outcome and would highly recommend him to anyone that may need a lawyer. Due to my husbands injuries we will need to apply for disability, Mr.Corzo offered to help us fill out the paper work and make sure everything is done correctly. We can’t THANK him enough for all that he has done for our family. #Thankful”– David and Jennifer Alvarez
