Immigration is a sensitive subject for many people. If you have a friend or family member who's detained in Florida for immigration reasons, listen up. You have to get an immigration bond in order to release your friend/family member from custody.
According to a study done by Syracuse University, the average time to process an immigration case is nearly 600 days.
If you're unsure how Florida immigration bail bonds work, we've got the lowdown right here so read on!
What is an Immigration Bond?
An immigration bond is required if your friend/family member "has been detained by the Department of Homeland Security US Immigration and Customers Enforcement (ICE)."
However, there are two types of immigration bonds available to illegal aliens in ICE custody.
A delivery bond is "based on the determination of an ICE or immigration judge." It allows the person to spend time with their friends and family, as well as consult an immigration lawyer if they want.
A voluntary departure bond "gives the person the option to voluntarily leave the country at their own expense for a certain period of time."
How Much Will the Bond Be?
The higher the risk, the higher the bond amount is going to be.
Common Misconceptions for Florida Immigration Bail Bonds
A lot of people compare immigration bonds to criminal bail bonds.
The process for immigration bonds is long, so strap in. Just because the person is relieved of their bond obligation after showing up to their first court date, doesn't mean they're done.
They're released from ICE custody, and that's it for now. The person will then have to appear for all court hearings and for all I 340's ICE.
Be aware that all immigration bond companies aren't the same. That's why it's important to work with one that's reputable and trustworthy. At Action Immigration Bonds and Insurance Services Inc, we're here to help guide and educate you through the bond process.
The final misconception is that the person doesn't have to show up to their hearing.
If one does not appear in court and the judge orders deportation, file an appeal with the Board of Immigration Appeals.
