How long does it take for the process of deportation if you agreed to it?

Asked about 1 year ago - Duluth, GA

Someone's in jail for two felonies with a cleared immigration hold status and was denied bond by criminal judge, can he get an immigration bond even with his situation now? He already agreed to deportation and was told that he could get bond and wait for the process...want to know if that's possible and how long does it usually take?

    Answered . This matter depends on what are the felonies involved and what type of immigration relief he would be eligible for. However, if the individual signed (since you said agreed) a form requesting deportation, then it would be very difficult to obtain a bond given that he essentially consented to deportation and it usually involves a waiver of removal proceedings. While this does not automatically bar the individual from being able to obtain a bond, it does make it more difficult.

    Answered . It all depends on circumstances of his case. The bond is initially set by ICE/DHS and depends on many factors; also there are situations in which a person is not eligible for a bond. If the person signed voluntarily departure, than he can be released for up to the time agreed with the ICE/DHS.
