ICE can deliver documents with a bond amount or the words “no bond” (“no bond”). The detainee may request a bail hearing from the judge to consider establishing bail or reducing the amount established by ICE. There are several ways to request a bail hearing: Tell the judge at your first hearing that you want a bail hearing as soon as possible. Bail hearings are totally separate from deportation hearings, although you will be presenting your bail case to the same judge who considers your deportation case. If you ask for a bail hearing when you are in court, the judge will usually give you a hearing in the next few days or weeks. To request this hearing you must check the following box in the “Notice of Custody Determination”  I do request an immigration judge review of this custody determination Write a letter to the judge asking for a bail hearing. Be sure to include your name, immigration number (A-number), and your request to have a bail hearing as soon as possible. You must send this letter to the address: Immigration Court, 1 Federal Drive, suite 1850, Fort Snelling, MN 55111. If the hearing is quickly established and you are still collecting documents, you can tell the judge that you are waiting for more letters and that you want to postpone the bond hearing so you have more time to get the documents you need. This may be a good idea since it is better to be well prepared for the audience.
