Increasingly we have individuals asking us questions about bail especially on the subject of immigration. If you’ve ever found yourself asking- what is an immigration bail bond? We’re going to answer that question today and hopefully shed some light on immigration bail bonds. You will need an immigration bail bond if a friend or family member is arrested due to immigration circumstances. In some cases the detainees are not eligible for bail however if they are eligible here’s what you need to know.
As long as the detainee is not considered threat to public safety or national security there are two types of bond available for illegal aliens in custody. The voluntary departure bond or the delivery bond. Let’s have a loot at the Voluntary Departure bond first.
- A voluntary departure bond gives the detainee the option to leave the country voluntarily. With this bond the detainee is responsible for arranging and paying for their own departure. Usually they are given a specific date that they need to leave by. With this type of immigration bond as long as the amount was paid in full is refundable once the detainee has left the country. However if they fail to leave by the appointed date the amount paid is no longer refundable.
- A delivery bond may be issued by ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) or an immigration judge. With this type of bail bond the detainee will receive an arrest warrant and a notice of custody conditions to be released on a delivery bond. This assures the detainee will appear at all their appointed court hearings. This is helpful because it allows the detainee to meet with an immigration lawyer as well as spend time with family before the court hearings.
