Immigration is a very critical issue in the United States. An individual will undoubtedly be prosecuted and detained once their citizen status ends or when they overlook their legal restrictions to stay in the U.S. If caught up in such a scenario a person can apply for immigration bail bond. The immigration bond is a legal alternative to set free a person who has been detained because of going against the immigration rules.
In such scenarios a licensed bond agency does what is needed to release the person in custody. Charges will not be dropped once you apply for immigration bail bonds. You will be still required to follow the proper channels that enable you to become a US citizen. The bond is a tool to enable you to remain out of jail but follow some rules to the letter.
After getting bail, you will have to attend all court sessions and visit immigration offices whenever asked to.
What are the procedures for qualifying for bail bonds? Not everybody is eligible to apply for release after giving security money as per the laws of the United States. Some circumstances will not let a person get an immigration bail bond. A person who had received a deportation order before cannot get an immigration bail bond. Those with criminal records cannot also apply for this bond.
Normally, there are two types of immigration bonds. People who are arrested for immigration charges can choose two methods, delivery or delivery departure bond. Delivery bonds are paid by people who are in the country illegally, or they have been detained by the ICE. The condition that comes with this type of bond is that the detainee attends all the court immigration hearings with no fail.
A notice of custody conditions and the arrest warrant are the things needed to apply for this bond. The voluntary departure bond allows the accused person to leave the country using their expenses and a time-lapse is set as to when they should leave. The bond money is refunded to the person who paid when they finally leave the country and not before that. If the person does not leave the country as ordered then they do not get the money back.
The immigration judge or the ICE are the people who set the amount of bail bond to be paid by the accused parties. There are things the judge considers before issuing the amount to be paid; they include; employment status, criminal record or the immigration status. If freeing a person will be risky to the community the judge can increase the bail amount. The least amount a person can pay for a delivery bond is fifteen hundred dollars and five hundred dollars for a departure bond.
