How to Get the Money for an Immigration Bond

Home » Immigration Help & Resources » How to Get the Money for an Immigration Bond

If someone you know has been detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) it is crucial that you understand what needs to be done to have your loved one released from detention. Being unaware of what an immigration bond is and how to get money for an immigration bond can have a devastating effect on the person being detained by ICE. This guide outlines everything you need to know about immigration bond requirements and procedures.

What is an Immigration Bond?

An immigration bond is a type of surety bond used to secure the release of a person living unlawfully within the United States from the custody of Homeland Security. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement will make a determination on the eligibility of detained aliens for release on bond. They will set an amount on the bond which must be paid within a week after detention. For a family member who has been detained by ICE, immigration bondsmen can be utilized to get money for an immigration bond.

There are, however, cases in which U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement may decline bond. In these situations, an immigration bond hearing can be requested before an immigration judge. The immigration judge will then decide on whether a bond can be granted. An immigration bond hearing is also an option for families seeking a reduction in the bond amount.

This decision by the immigration judge is made based on various factors:

  • The judge must determine if the detained alien is a flight risk and will attend all future court hearings.
  • The just must determine if the detained alien is a danger to the community and/or is rehabilitated after any crimes which they might have committed in the past.
  • The will determine the likelihood that the alien will win their case. The greater the chance for the alien to win the immigration case, the more likely the judge is to give a lower bond.

The immigration bond has been set - what’s next?

To pay the immigration bond at the local U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement office, the individual paying the bond must bring their original social security card together with a valid photo ID. The person paying the bond (the obligor) can be any person of legal status in the United States. He or she will need to schedule an appointment with the local immigration office to pay the bond. Immigration bonds cannot be paid by cash or personal check.

Alternatively, the help of a third party - immigration bondsmen- can be used to pay the immigration bond. Unlike a typical bail bondsman who posts bonds for persons in custody due to criminal offenses, an immigration bondsman will post bail for persons who are detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement on grounds of immigration violations.

Immigration bondsmen can make the process of freeing a detained family member much easier and faster than you’re able to. Due to their resources at their disposal, they are often the first call you should make. Each immigration bonds service differs in pricing. Some offices can charge up to 20% of the set bond which can be an extreme price. However, US Immigration Bonds of Fort Lauderdale will help you get money for an immigration bond much faster. By only charging 12% of the immigration bond and a $10.00 fee, families may be able to thousands of dollars to free their loved one.

Jeremy Wolf and his agency have been a terrific resource for me as I delve into this foreign world of bonding a friend out of jail so he and his wife can work on his case on the "outside." Jeremy has been unfailingly polite and informative and his video regarding how to complete the necessary forms was a valuable tool too. The entire process was quick and relatively easy. I especially appreciated not having to deal with a jaded, impatient, figure--it-out-yourself kind of person when I was treading in really unfamiliar territory. My questions were always answered quickly and efficiently.I highly recommend this company in your time of need for quick, efficient and professional service with no attitude or delay.read more

Jeremy Wolf, is compassionate and understanding. He has been there and done it with his own family, and together with his wife they dedicate their time and energy into helping other families come together. I know this because my husband was taken by ICE and his bond was set much higher than I could have imagined, having in my hands at any given time. ... With Jeremy, his wife and the rest of the team we were able to piece together the required 80% and set up a affordable and convient payment plan. It was a grueling process, at times I felt like I was going to loose all my hair, as I ran around selling homemade tamales, and had various other fund raisers going on, along with my husband being detained, I lost my home, my dog and my daughter and I pushed forward with the help and support of Jeremy and his team, if It wasn't for there hours of help and dedication, to put a previous bond for my nephew into action to help my husband, we wouldn't have been able to have him home for the Holidays. ... To Jeremy, Veronica, and Amber, who I spoke with often, and the other parts of the team who I was unable to catch their names, I THANK YOU, FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!read more
