If you do not request the hearing, then the Immigration Judge will never know you want bond. Thus, make sure you actually request it.
Prepare the equties
Try to show the Judge what ties you have to the U.S., including family, property, jobs, assets, etc.
Show why you will not run
Try to show why it is in your best interest to go to all of your hearings and not miss any hearings. Show the Judge that it will not be a risk to let you out on bond.
Request an appropriate amount
Without making it too high agree to pay a certain amount and if the Judge agrees, then have somebody on the outside actually pay the bond and bring proff to the detention facility. Afterwards you will be released.
Follow up with your next Court date.
Be sure you know when and where your next Court date is. If you miss it, you will be ordered deported in absentia.
