The Immigration Bail Bond Process in Florida

Home » Immigration Help & Resources » The Immigration Bail Bond Process in Florida

When determining if hiring an immigration bail bond company is right for you, it is important to understand immigration bail bonds and how the Florida bond process works.

Where the Florida bail bond process begins:

  • A family member or friend who is an alien and illegally present in the United States is arrested by a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officer.
  • The illegal immigrant is taken to an ICE detention center for processing and booking.
  • The arresting ICE officer either grants the illegal immigrant a Florida bond and the
    Department of Homeland Security sets the bond amount OR the ICE officer determines the alien is a threat or flight risk and denies grant to a Florida bond.
  • In the event that an ICE officer denies the grant of a Florida bond, a request for an immigration bond hearing can be submitted to an immigrant judge who has the ability to grant and set the amount for the bond.

How the Florida bail bonds payment process works:

  • An outside party, also known as an “indemnitor”, is responsible for the payment of a Florida immigrant bond. The payment can also be referred to as “posting” or “putting up” the immigrant bond. This is usually a family member or friend of the detained illegal alien.
  • If the indemnitor is unable to post bond for the detained illegal alien, they must make arrangements with a third party (usually an immigration bond agency) in order to pay the immigration bond.

The purpose and function of a Florida immigration bail bond agency:

  • In the event the indemnitor contracts an immigration bail bondsman, the bail bond agency becomes a "co-obliger” and assures the Department of Homeland Security that the illegal alien being released on bond will be present at any and all Notice to Appear’s (NTA’s).
  • The indemnitor must also agree to the Florida immigration bail bond agency they are using that he or she will make sure the illegal alien, also known as the “defendant”, will be present for all NPA’s.
  • After a contract is prepared and signed by all parties, the hired Florida immigration bail bond agency posts the defendants bond and the defendant is released from the detention center.

How to arrange a bail bond with a Florida immigration bail bond agency:

  • In order to secure service from a bail bond agency, the indemnitor must pay a fee or provide collateral to the agency.
  • The fee for a Florida immigration bail bond is usually a percentage of the original bond amount set by the Department of Homeland Security.
  • If the fee is unable to be paid by the indemnitor, collateral is usually accepted such as equity in the indemnitor’s house or credit cards.

What to expect from a Florida immigration bail bond agency:

  • The bail bond agency usually gathers general information about the situation at hand first.
  • Once the proper paperwork has been prepared and processed, the Florida bail bond agency can begin working on bonding out the detained alien.
  • Many times immigration bail bond agencies are able to post bond for illegal aliens detained in Florida in a matter of hours.

US immigration bonds were absolutely the best they were super professional. When I was down and out when my husband was detained by immigration they were very caring , knowledgeable, and patient. I called them a thousand times and they were very empathic and helpful everytime I called. they reassures me that everything would be fine, and that they would help me my husband, and my children be reunited again. They did everything they could to get me a same day release. They exceeded my expectations. I would not recommend any company other than US immigration bonds. Us immigration bonds, under promises and over fulfills. They were a true blessing ! Thank you so much more

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 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
