Your eligibility for a bond (otherwise known as bail) depends on a variety of factors, including how you entered the U.S., any legal status you presently hold, and any convictions that would automatically make you ineligible (e.g., aggravated felony, drugs or firearms, theft, assault, or using false documents). A conviction for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol (DUI) does not make you ineligible, but does factor into to whether you are a good and moral person.
