    Answered . If you can get to an ICE officer before the person leaves NC then you can negotiate a bond assuming the alien is not mandatorily detained. If you file with the immigration court in Charlotte for a bond, they will only hear the case if the alien is in NC at the time of the hearing. Otherwise the immigration judge will deny the motion for lack of jurisdiction. Once the alien is in GA, then the motion for bond is properly before the IJs in Atlanta or Nortn Stewart.

    Answered . Bonds are not automatic but if the circumstances are ok, then ICE can and usually will set a bond. Time frames in GA I cannot answer as each ICE office operates differently.

    Answered . Bond will not be set if the person in question is subject to mandatory detention (INA s 236)
