Types of Immigration Bonds
There are two main types of immigration bonds:
- Delivery bond: If eligible for this type of bond, it allows a detained individual to be released from a detention center while they wait for their case to resolve. It is also meant to guarantee that an individual appears for all their court hearings, otherwise no money or collateral is returned to the person who posted the bond. Failure to show up to hearings also means the individual will be detained by ICE again.
- Voluntary departure bond: A judge grants this type of bond if the detained individual agrees to leave the country voluntarily for a specified period of time. The bond is then returned after departure. If the individual fails to leave the U.S., the bond is forfeited and the individual may face additional legal consequences.
What Can I Expect During an Immigration Bond Hearing?
During a bond hearing in an immigration case, various factors will be taken into account to determine your eligibility for a bond and how much your freedom will cost while your case is pending.
An immigration judge will examine factors about you such as:
- Your risk of posing a danger to your community
- If you are a flight risk
- Your criminal history, if any
- Your employment history and its stability
- Your ability to afford a bond (the full amount is due prior to your release)
- Your immigration history, including past attempts to enter the U.S. and duration of current stay
- Your eligibility to see relief from removal and deportation proceedings
- Family ties to USC's or LPR's and the impact your continued detention will have on the family members
Who Is Ineligible for a Bond?
The scope of who may be ineligible to receive a release on a bond is actually very narrow, but that does not preclude the possibility that your bond may be denied if you do not meet these criteria.
Immigrants ineligible for release on a bond include:
- Arriving immigrants
- Suspected terrorists
- Aggravated felons
- A record of multiple crimes displaying moral turpitude
- A record of controlled substance violations
Even if you do not fall within one of the categories an Immigration Jugde may still deny your bond request. Should you be in this position, reach out to one of our immigration bond attorneys in Dallas who can help you fight for your release while your case is pending.
What Is the Cost of an Immigration Bond?
The amount of your bond will vary depending on a variety of factors. If you are a flight risk, your bond amount may be higher. On average, the bond amount can range from $500 to $10,000 or even more.
The immigration bond amount is determined by a judge or an ICE official, and is based on several factors:
- One's criminal history
- Employment status
- Family ties in the U.S.
