Undocumented immigrants live in constant fear of being arrested by ICE. When it happens, it proves to be one of the most stressful experiences for immigrants and their families. Attorney Norma Sepulveda knows that when you have a family member or a friend in immigration custody, the most important thing to you is getting them out and getting them out quickly. Norma Sepulveda and her team move quickly to request a bond hearing before the immigration judge to fight for the release of their clients.
Even with an experienced lawyer, bond is not guaranteed. It is important to remember that immigrants only get one chance at a bond hearing. If a judge denies bond it is practically impossible to get a second hearing.
Attorney Sepulveda has successfully won bonds for clients detained throughout Texas and across the United States. This enables her clients to avoid further detention, spend time with their loved ones, and have much better access to legal and family support.
