Immigration cases can be rather lengthy, sometimes lasting up to 5 years. Termination of an immigration case happens when a) the alien obtains US citizenship or a permanent resident card b) when the alien has relocated to his/her country of birth. Once poof of any of these outcomes is provided to our office, we immediately request cancellation of bond. Once we receive the cancellation, we return your collateral within 30 days.

If you have the full amount of bond in cash, you may purchase a cashier’s check to present directly to immigration to post the bond. When the case is terminated, you must request a refund from immigration. To many, it is priceless to instead have a bond company to navigate this system on their behalf, rather than trying to submit confusing forms or having to hire an expensive attorney to assist you in the process. Our company will always refund your collateral within 30 days of the case being terminated.

Collateral is anything of value being used to secure you bond. Immigration bonds must be 100% collateralized. This means we will either hold the full amount in cash, put the full amount on credit cards or use real estate property to secure the bond. When using a home as collateral, it is simply a lien placed on the property in the amount of the bond. It is removed as soon as the case has been terminated.

You will need an Indemnitor, or signer, to fill out some documents pertaining to your bond. We can often times do this through e-mail or electronic signature. The cost of an immigration bond is 15% premium and full collateral. The 15% of the bond amount is a non-refundable service fee. The collateral will be returned when the case is closed.

Usually, it takes between 7 and 14 days after being detained for the detainee to see a judge. Almost always, the detainee will notify family who will then be in touch with the bondsman. If you have not heard from the detainee and want to know if a bond has been set, we are more than happy to check for you. You will need to provide us with the detainee’s full name, Alien #, date of birth and country of birth. With this information, we will be able to verify if there is a bond.

Immigration bonds are set based on several criteria. The Judge will take into consideration the following things: Immigration status, criminal history, employment and family situation. Once the Judge evaluates all of these things, it will be determined if the alien will be given a bond, and how much the bond will be set at.

The Immigration process can be confusing to most who have never had the bond experience. This is why it is so important to deal with a reputable company that has the experience and knowledge to guide you through. An immigration bond is needed when the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE) has an interest in a defendant that has been arrested. If a defendant is given an immigration bond through ICE, a bond can then be posted for that amount through our bail bond office electronically. Another scenario is when a non-citizen defendant is arrested on a county or state crime and has an immigration hold reported by the detaining county. Once the state bond, if required, has been posted, ICE may choose to transport the defendant to an ICE detention facility where the defendant will see an immigration judge and possibly be given an immigration bond. This is a lot of information, so we encourage you to call our office so that you are comfortable with your understanding of immigration bail bonds.
