Action Immigration

If your loved one has been detained by ICE or another government entity, you know that your first impulse is getting them out of a cell and back to the safety of your home. This can be a stressful and scary time, but thinking clearly and working toward this initial goal can help the process immensely. 

With a new administration in place, the process of applying for immigration bonds has the potential to change rapidly. You'll want to keep up with the latest developments to ensure you have the information you need to get through the process.

What do you need to know about the current process of obtaining an immigration bail bond? Read on and we'll walk you through the basics.

Understanding Immigration Bonds in 2021

The Biden Administration has many plans to address immigration reform in the wake of the Trump administration, including plans to end the Muslim ban and hold ICE agents to a higher standard. 

Immigration is clearly high on the mind of the President, and one might expect many changes to come about under his term as President. Many are already being worked on.

At the current moment, these changes have not impacted immigration bonds directly, though this could always change. The process for obtaining and paying for an immigration bail bond in 2021 is, at the moment, the same as it was in years previous. 

The requirements remain the same as well. 

  • an ICE agent must set the immigration bond amount, or
  • the detainee in question must request a hearing before an immigration judge in order to determine if they will be eligible for bail

Paying Immigration Bail Bonds

In 2021, the payment for an immigration bail bond has not yet been altered by the Biden administration. A person of legal US status must schedule an appointment with an immigration bonds office and pay the detainee's bond as their sponsor.

You'll then need to set a similar appointment with the local ICE office and notify them that you'd like to come in and pay their bond. In some cases, an immigration bond office might be able to do this for you.

Once the immigration bond is paid, the detention facility that your loved one is being held at will be notified. Your loved one will be cleared for release in about an hour's time from when the bail is paid, allowing you to go and pick them up.

With your loved one released and back home, you'll have the freedom to seek legal aid and determine your next steps.

While the Biden administration has promised to make big changes to immigration laws in the next few years, these changes have yet to touch on the immigration bonds process. The above information can help you understand the current status of getting a loved one out of a detention center on bail.
