The Immigration Bond Process
Learning how the immigration bail bond process worksisimportant, especially if the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has accused and detained your loved one of an immigration crime. Amistad Immigration Bonds shares this guide:
Taken into Custody
The process starts with the arrest of the illegal alien by an ICE officer. The agent takes the unauthorized immigrant to a federal law enforcement station for booking and processing. Next, the immigration judge (or the deportation officer via custody determination) sets the bond amount.
Determining the Bail Amount
The amount in an immigration bond is not standard or fixed. Factors, such as the defendant’s likelihood of fleeing the country, could affect the bail amount.
Once the amount is set, paying the bail bond will be the next step.
The detainee generally has two options when it comes to paying for the immigration bond: cash bond and bail bond. A cash bond requires full payment of the bond amount to ICE. If the defendant shows up for the mandatory court hearings, they will get their money back in full after the case is complete. If the accused is unable to pay the whole bond amount, they can approach an immigration bail bondsman to pay the amount.
