US Immigration Bonds has been one of the leading bonds and insurance services in South Florida for years. Throughout that time, there are usually a number of similar questions we get very often. The first thing to remember is to not feel overwhelmed. This is an unfortunate situation you find yourself in, but with the help of a good bondsman in South Florida, like US Immigration Bonds, you can secure an immigration bond and fight for release.

The best place to start in any explanation of US immigration bonds would probably be at the very beginning. What is an immigration bond? How do they work? What do I need to know?

Non-citizens that are believed to not have legal residence in the United States can become subject to arrest and detainment. The Department of Homeland Security has a branch called Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) who are in charge of taking non-citizens into custody. Once the detainee is found eligible for release, there will be an amount set for bond. This is the immigration bond. The amount that the bond is set at will usually depend on a number of different factors, usually involved in the risk involved in release.

The immigration bond can be paid by any other person as long as they have legal status in the United States. Bondsmen are a 3rd party that can also pay the bond. And that’s where US Immigration Bonds comes in. The bond acts as bail for the detained individual. After the bond is accepted, the detainee will be released. The detainee is given a court date and must return to face the judge and continue the hearing. If the detainee does not return, the bond is lost and even more serious charges might be filed.

Bonds paid to the ICE usually have to be 100% cash or the equivalent. This makes it difficult for friends and family to pay the large bond to have the detainee released. Another important part of the immigration bondsmen is that some of the burden is relieved.

It is also important to remember that just because the detainee has been released, there is still are still legal matters that have not been handled yet. It’s recommended that the detainee use this time to find legal representation. Just because a bond was paid does not mean that the detainee will automatically be allowed to stay in the United States. Make sure you are looking at options for your case. The immigration case will be decided upon by a judge.

At the end of the case, regardless of the outcome, the person who paid the bond can get the bond money back. If you find yourself in this situation, we at US Immigration Bonds know how stressful it can be. Give us a call and let us help you as best we can.

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 again.read 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 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
