Immigration bonds help keep you out of jail

Immigration bail bonds are used to release individuals from custody until a court appearance. Immigration bonds work specifically for those who meet certain qualifications, such as being held by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and given the right to bond by the immigration judge.

This kind of bond is called a delivery bond. The bond makes sure that the person shows up to court after he or she is released. If not, the money paid to the court may be lost, which is why it's always in the best interests of the family members or bond agent to make sure the individual goes to court on time.

Another kind of bond is the voluntary departure bond. This bond gives detainees time to voluntarily leave the country. They must leave at their own expense and need to do so within a specific amount of time. If the individual does not leave, the bond is not refundable. If he or she does leave within the specified time, then the bond is refundable.

There are a few ways to pay for bonds if you intend to get one. A surety bond is paid through an immigration bond agent. Usually, the family of the individual pays up to 20 percent of the total bond, and then the bond agent covers the rest. Usually, you can't get this money back. Sometimes, it's possible to regain it if the individual shows up to court on time. Cash bonds are paid directly to ICE and are refundable once the conditions are met.
