Do you have a friend or family member being detained by ICE in New Jersey? If so, please call 1-888-668-1588 for immediate help with getting a bond posted! At Brennan Immigration Bonds we can start the process as soon as you have provided just a few details about your loved one. Our promise to you is that you are never alone during this difficult and stressful process, as we will walk you through each step. You will be treated with respect and compassion at all times. Your questions and concerns will be addressed promptly, professionally and honestly. We will provide you with the quality service that you expect and deserve.
When you contact our office, we will need the full name of the person being detained, their Alien number and their country of birth in order to get started. You will probably already know the bond amount, but with the information you provide, we can verify the type of bond required, the facility information and we will confirm the bond amount.
Almost all ICE facilities release detainees the same day that their bond is posted. However, every facility is different, having very specific procedures and guidelines that they follow for release. If a particular facility does not release on the same date, or if any special circumstances exist, we will let you know right away.
Any procedures followed by a facility are put in place for the safety of the detainee. In all cases, our goal is to have your loved one released as quickly as possible.
Types of Immigration Bonds
The most common type of bond is a Delivery Bond. When a subject is released on a Delivery Bond, he/she is able to remain living and working in the United States while their case is ongoing. If the individual does not appear for any DHS appointments or scheduled hearings, the Immigration bond will be forfeited thus making the full amount of the bond due to ICE immediately. Any collateral being held by the bond company will then be used to pay the bond.
Though a Delivery Bond is the most common, other types of Immigration bonds do exist. You can read about the less common types of bonds on our Home Page under “Types of Bonds”.

Posting an Immigration Bond with Premium and Collateral
In order to post an Immigration bond in New Jersey, a premium of 15% of the bond must be paid. For all Immigration bonds, collateral in the amount of the bond must be provided. For Immigration bonds specifically, it is required that collateral be in the form of cash or real estate property. If there is no possibility of using a property and you will be using cash as collateral, there are several ways in which you can secure the bond. You can provide cash collateral by personally visiting our office, using Zelle through your banking institution, doing a wire transfer or making a deposit into one of our bank accounts. You can also use credit cards to collateralize your bond. We permit up to 5 cards to be run and will take Visa, Mastercard, Discover or American Express. There are some cases where the bond can be considered for a payment plan, such as cases that we expect to close within 18 months. If you qualify, we would require an initial payment of the 15% Premium and 50% of the Collateral. You would then make payments monthly on the remaining 50% of the Collateral. We typically offer 12 months to pay the balance of collateral if a payment plan has been approved.
If you are using any of the above options aside from using real estate property, we can do all of your paperwork electronically. We conveniently send your documents directly to your e-mail address and you can sign these documents on your smart phone, desktop or laptop computer. There is no need for printing, faxing or scanning of any paperwork. In almost all cases, we are ready to post the bond less than an hour after your initial contact with our office.
If you do not have cash collateral, and will be using real estate to secure the bond, the process is a bit different. First, we will need the address of the property that you would like to use. We do a very quick assessment of the property to make sure that is has sufficient equity and is not otherwise encumbered. Once we have determined that the property can be used as collateral, we will prepare all of your documents and send them to your e-mail. You will complete this paperwork, which includes having the Mortgage Agreement notarized, and then return the documents to our office. We must have the original documents prior to posting the bond. If the paperwork is overnighted, we can usually post by noon the following day.
Unfortunately, there is a widespread misconception about allowing a bond company to use your home as collateral. There is a fear that your home could be “stolen” from you or that you will not be able to sell or refinance your home while the mortgage is in place. This is absolutely not true. The Mortgage Agreement that a homeowner signs contains very specific information, including the name of the person being detained, the amount of the bond and it clearly states that the mortgage is being used to collateralize a bond. This document is then filed with the court. By allowing us to place a lien on your property in the amount of the bond, you are able to remove your loved one from detention without having to find a large amount of cash that could possibly be unavailable for several years. By using a property, you are securing the bond but you also do not lose any ability to sell or refinance your home. If you decide to sell your home prior to the termination of the immigration case, the amount of the bond will be substituted at that time. Then, any cash that we are holding will be returned promptly after the closing of the case. We can submit the bond immediately upon receiving the original documents in our office.
Brennan Immigration Bonds is very committed to having collateral returned immediately upon termination of an immigration case. You will typically have your collateral in your possession within 10 days of our office receiving an I-391 form. An Immigration bond is cancelled when the Immigration Judge terminates the court proceedings. This usually happens when legal status is obtained, such as Permanent Resident/Citizenship or if the alien has returned to their country of birth. If we have not received a cancellation of bond, you can provide the order from the judge or a copy of the resident card. We will then request that the bond be cancelled. If you have proof that legal status has been obtained, you can e-mail it a copy of the court document or resident card so that we can get a cancellation based on that evidence.
At Brennan Immigration Bonds you will always be treated fairly. Your questions will be answered thoroughly and truthfully, as we believe it is important for our clients to be as educated as possible about the Immigration bond process. We maintain close contact with our clients from start to finish, making sure to always be available for any questions or concerns that may arise.
It is very important that you choose an Immigration Bond company that has proper knowledge and understanding of the Immigration bond process and not the company that offers you the cheapest price. In order to post an Immigration bond, a specific license is required. This license is not carried by many of the companies advertising their Immigration bond services. In addition, reputable insurance companies, that immigration bond agents write under, require proper collateral to protect both the agent and the indemnitor. Imagine if a bond were posted, you lose contact with the person who was detained, they miss court making YOU responsible for the full amount of the bond. A company that may have offered to post the bond with little or no collateral will now sue you for the amount of the bond. If the Immigration bond process is completed professionally and properly, you avoid having any surprise fees or expenses throughout the case. Brennan Bail Bonds will never charge any interest or additional fees once your bond is posted.

Recently, New Jersey became the fourth state to limit or ban Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE) detention contracts. New Jersey joined three other states that have similarly done the same (California, Illinois and Washington State). Governor Murphy signed into law that a new ban, public or private entities are prohibited from entering into new ICE detention contracts and are also prohibited from renewing and extending ICE detention contracts in New Jersey. Many residents of New Jersey thanked Governor Murphy. Supporters of the new law were happy and have stated such things as “Governor Murphy has made New Jersey a model state for social justice”. A lot of community members and backers of immigrant rights have stated the new law is a step towards distancing states from ICE and have called for the release of those currently detained. Essex, Bergen, and Hudson Counties have ICE detention centers. Elizabeth County has a private detention contract. With this new law, Essex County started reducing the population in its facility. Unfortunately, since there was a delay in signing the law, the contract ICE has with Elizabeth County was extended and allows ICE to continue detaining people in Union County.
