Bonding Out a Family Member in ICE Custody

To get a family member or friend that has been detained by the Department of Homeland Security US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released, an immigration bond may be necessary. Bonds are usually required for undocumented individuals or Green Card holders that have been detained by the DHS and ICE. The bond is a sum of money they will receive back, if everything in the court order is followed in accordance.

There are four kinds of immigration bonds for bonding out a family member in ICE custody:

  • The Delivery Bond ensures that an individual will obey a deportation order. This bond is usually the most common bond.
  • The Public Safety Bond states that if a bonded alien accepts any form of public assistance, that the government will be reimbursed. This is known as the “Bond Ensuring That Alien Shall Not Become a Public Charge.”
  • The Voluntary Departure Bond is the “Bond Conditioned upon the Voluntary Departure of an Alien.” This bond requires that an alien who is granted voluntary departure will return to his or her home country based off the court order.
  • The Order of Supervision Bond requires that the detained individual successfully follows all of the conditions of the court order, and he or she will surrender for removal.
