Types of Immigration Bail Bonds

There are four kinds of immigration bonds:

  • G (1) Delivery Bond (Bond Conditioned upon the Delivery of an Alien). This is the most common, and is used to ensure that an individual will comply with a deportation order.
  • G (2) Public Safety Bond (Bond Ensuring That Alien Shall Not Become a Public Charge), is designed to ensure that the government will be reimbursed if a bonded alien accepts any form of public assistance.
  • G (3)Voluntary Departure Bond (Bond Conditioned upon the Voluntary Departure of an Alien). If an alien is granted voluntary departure, the G (3) is used to ensure that the person returns to his or her home country in accordance with the conditions set forth in the court order.
  • G (4) Order of Supervision Bond (Bond Ensuring Full Performance). A G (4) bond acts to ensure that the individual fully performs all of the conditions of the order of supervision and he or she surrenders for removal.

How Immigration Bail Bonds Work

Immigration bonds are typically required for Green Card holders or undocumented individuals who are held by the US Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) pending the outcome of their case. Remember, just because you pay an immigration bond, it does not excuse you from attending the rest of your hearings. The payer will be able to get the bond money back at the conclusion of the case. If you neglect to attend all of these required meetings, you are subject to immediate deportation and the bond money will never be given back. If the court rules that you must be deported, you will need to report to the Department of Homeland Security. If you do not, the money will not be refunded.
