In 2019, ICE reported detaining around 143,000 people. If you or your loved one is unfortunate enough to be among those astonishing numbers, you want to gain release from a detention center as soon as possible.
The only way to be released from an immigration detention center before your court date is to receive a bond. If you need immigration bond help, continue reading to learn what you need to know.
One of the most important things to know is immigration bonds aren't the same as criminal bonds.
An immigration bond is only for someone who has been detained by the United States Department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. ICE only handles situations involving non-citizens and green card holders.
A criminal bond, on the other hand, is for anyone who has broken the law within the United States. In certain situations, a person may need both an immigration bond and a criminal bond to obtain release. This might be the case if an illegal immigrant commits a crime within the states.
You can pay an immigration bond in one of two ways. You can pay the bond directly to ICE yourself, or you can enlist the help of an immigration bondsman.
Most people prefer to use a bondsman, with good reason. Using a bondsman means you don't have to have the full bond payment upfront in cash. You can, instead, use collateral or pay a percentage of the total amount.
Since the bondsman will help arrange the release of the detainee, a lot of money can be saved on transportation costs. Sometimes, a bond may take up to three days to appear in the ICE system. The detention center where the detainee is held could be hours or states away from the person paying the bond.
Not everyone is eligible to receive an immigration bond. A judge must decide on an individual basis. Generally, anyone who isn't considered either a flight risk or a danger to the community can receive a bond.
Someone may be considered a flight risk if they have no ties to the community or have previously skipped bail. Committing a violent crime generally makes a person a danger to the community. They may also be considered a threat if they're believed to have terrorist connections.
To make the immigration bond process go as smoothly (and quickly) as possible, gather essential information ahead of time. At a bare minimum, you'll need the following:
If you have additional information regarding the detainee you think might prove useful, be sure to have it on hand when getting a bond.
An immigration bond grants the temporary release of someone detained by ICE. The information above can help you better understand the process of getting a bond.
