Are you looking to get a loved one released from an immigration detention center?

If so, you may be forced to pay an immigration bail bond to see the release of your loved one. While about one in twenty people will serve time in jail in their lifetime, figuring out bail bonds can be tricky if you've never had to interact with the prison system before. 

Completely understanding what bail bonds are and how to pay an immigration bond is important. That's why today, we've created this quick guide to help you get a thorough understanding. Keep reading to learn more!

What Are The Immigration Bond Requirements?

There are two different ways that your loved one can be ruled as eligible for an immigration bond. 

The first way includes an immigration officer determining whether or not your loved one is eligible. This immigration officer will be the individual who determines how much the immigration bail bond is for. If this is the situation that your loved one qualifies for, you're expected to pay their bail bond within one week.

In the second instance, your loved one can put in a request to be listened to by an immigration judge. In this situation, the judge will be the individual who determines whether or not your loved one is eligible to be released with a bail bond.

After the judge has determined this information, they'll grant your loved one the bond. Also, they'll determine how much the bond is for.

Where Do You Go for An Immigration Bond?

If you're paying a bond for your loved one and you're a legal citizen of the United States, you can schedule an appointment with an immigration bond office near you. You'll pay the amount of the bond to the office. 

However, if you're unsure of where the closest immigration bond office is, you can call the nearest immigration detention center near you. On the phone, you'll need to communicate that you're interested in scheduling an appointment as the nearest immigration bond office to give the money for a bond.

Keep in mind that before you make the appointment to go to the immigration bond office to pay the bond, you should get a cashier's check. This is because immigration bonds can't be paid out with a personal check nor can they be paid out with cash.

In addition, you should also have a photo ID, such as your driver's license. You'll also want to have your social security card. This information will be what you need to hand over to the office to pay the bail bond.
