Remote Bond

Several of our local partners are able to place bond cases with volunteer attorneys who can work remotely because their local Immigration Court permits telephonic representation. This volunteer opportunity involves communicating with your client by phone, preparing motions to appear telephonically before the immigration court as well as a bond motion (with supporting documentation), collecting supporting evidence from your client (or their family), and arguing the bond motions before the Immigration Judge over the phone. Volunteers for this opportunity may be placed with a case from any of the local partners in our network.

To learn more about this opportunity type or others, please visit our Types of Volunteer Opportunities page.

The Support We Provide
Your work will be supported by several innovated resources: (1) An in-house expert who will mentor you and a group of other attorneys with similarly situated cases; (2) An online library of resources and training materials including template briefs, examples, and detailed guides; (3) A hands-on guide to walk you step-by-step through local practices and procedures.
