  • adjusting status? Bond?

    Ok, I know I've spoken with Mike2007 and carribianman about this before. But Just from the general public (the ones actually trying to help not the anti-illegals) I would like to explain my situation and to see if you think this will be possible. Thanks.

    My husband entered with a work visa in 2004, expired 2005. We met in 2006 got married 2007. He had some traffic tickets, 1 DUI, some driving without a license and a misdemeanor hit and run.

    For the last one, he was placed on probation, which was revoked, he had to do his max time (45 days) which he was released to ICE because he wasn't in status.

    I got a lawyer, gave her certified copy of his recored (to rule out his charges as deportable) and she says they are not deportable. And if they try and say the hit and run is a CIMT then we can probably call it petty offense.

    We sent off the I-130, so we're waiting for this to get approved. He signed to have our lawyer represent him and to go to court, they will be moving him to georgia soon.

    Our lawyer believes we can get bond, because he has a form of relief, his crimes aren't deportable, and he entered with a visa. Do you think he will be able to get bond? And do you think we will probably get his AOS approved?

    Sorry this is long, I just like getting as many opinions of people who've been throug this or have knowledge of the laws.

      provoked because he drove again and cause he wasn't up to date on his fines, which he was paying something every month, but sometimes didn't have everything, so he was behind. but our lawyer told us to write in my personal letter to the judge about why it was revoked. Because basically, before we got married and he lived over an hour away, he couldn't get a ride to work and they told him he'd get fired if he didn't show up and the guy who normally took him couldn't but let him use his car. She also said something about them saying something about the probation revocation. She also said in their other cases, usually people with criminal history, their bond was around $10,000. Which i don't even have a way to get that, i have no collateral, i'm praying my family will help me if he's granted bond. I can pay for the attorneys and the hearings, just not the bail.

          grr, he hasn't called me, I called the jail and he's not there, I can't find out where he's at. This is so frustrating, they told him they wouldn't move him for more than aweek and the moved him after 4 days. My biggest fear is that the deported him anyways even though he requested court.

            Mike2007: I chose the attorney we have because she has 16 years in immigration law and deportation. She knows so much about it and I wouldn't be comfortable with a pro bono probably. I feel more secure.

            Davdah: See I'm worried I don't have any collateral. I'm not sure what I could even put up as collateral, i don't even have my car in my name.

            Also, does anyone know how I can find out where he's at?? I don't know if they have good access to a phone or not, but I called where he's at, and he's not there. I'm so worried they just sent deported him anyways.

                      i called that number, and his A# isn't in the system yet. He just got it last monday. And either I didn't write it down correctly or its not in there. It says "this number is not in the system or does not have a court date set yet" something like that. Which the lawyer said his papers follow him to the detention center then go to the court. so it usually takes like 2 weeks.

                              That is what the number said when I called. that there is nothing on that A#. I'm just scared they're going to send him to mexico anyways. Thats my fear right now. even though he told him he wanted court. you know how corrupt some people's cases are. I don't want ours to be another one. hopefully he'll be able to call today or in the morning!!! hopefully!!! I'm so worried!!!
