Immigration Bond Services

/ Immigration overview

An immigration bond is a financial guarantee that allows an individual in immigration detention to be released from custody while their immigration case is pending. It is similar to a bail bond in the criminal justice system but is used in immigration proceedings. The purpose of an immigration bond is to ensure that the individual appears for all scheduled immigration court hearings and complies with the conditions set by the immigration authorities.


Who is eligible for an Immigration Bond?

Not everyone in immigration detention is eligible for an immigration bond. Eligibility is determined on a case-by-case basis. Certain factors, such as the nature of the immigration violation, criminal history, flight risk, and ties to the community, are considered when determining whether an individual is eligible for a bond.

What are the types of Immigration Bond?

There are two primary types of immigration bonds:
  • Delivery Bond: this type of bond allows an individual to be released from immigration detention and continue with their immigration case while living in the United States. A delivery bond is typically granted to individuals who are not considered a flight risk.
  • Voluntary Departure Bond: a voluntary departure bond allows an individual to be released from detention on the condition that they agree to voluntarily leave the United States by a specified date. If they depart as agreed, they may be eligible for a refund of the bond amount.

What is the bond amount and who determined it?

The immigration judge or U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) sets the bond amount. The amount can vary widely depending on the individual case. A bond may range from a few thousand dollars to tens of thousands of dollars or more.

What are the Bond conditions?

When an immigration bond is granted, it comes with specific conditions that the individual must adhere to. These conditions may include attending all immigration court hearings, reporting to an ICE office, and complying with any orders issued by the immigration authorities.

How can I pay the Bond?

An immigration bond can be paid in full to the Department of Homeland Security or through a licensed surety bond company. If a surety bond company is used, the individual or their family will typically pay a percentage of the bond amount as a non-refundable fee, while the company posts the full bond with immigration authorities.

Will I get the Bond back?

If the individual complies with all bond conditions, the bond amount is refunded once their immigration case is concluded. In the case of a voluntary departure bond, departing as agreed is a condition for a refund.
