Immigration Bonds in Texas

Is your friend or loved one being held by Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE)? Being detained by the Department of Homeland Security when your residency status is in question could be very stressful. Most detainees immediately start to worry about being deported and being separated from their families.

    Understand How Immigration Bail Bonds Work

    When someone is arrested for an immigration violation, ICE has the choice of releasing the defendant or detaining the defendant, depending on the particular circumstances around the individual’s status. If ICE chooses to detain the defendant, they will need to see an immigration judge or other official to determine if they are eligible to have a bond set. If a bond is set, the immigration judge will determine the amount.

    The judge does take the detainee’s person history into consideration when determining whether an immigration bail bond will be set and what that amount will be. Some on the items taken into consideration include (but are not limited to):

    • Criminal history
    • Employment
    • Family in the U.S.
    • Legal history
    • Immigration status

    What many people are unaware of is that Texas immigration bonds are available to help citizens get their family members and other loved ones out of immigration hold. That’s where Southern Bail Bonds Dallas can help. We can assist your family with posting immigration bonds in Texas and around the U.S.

    What Are The Requirements For Posting an Immigration Bond?

    The judge or other ICE official will check to see if the detainee has a criminal record. Having previous criminal charges doesn’t automatically disqualify a detainee from receiving an immigration bond, but the amount of the bond could be significantly higher if a criminal record does exist. The nature or the criminal charges are also taken into consideration. Naturally, more serious charges may restrict the detainee’s ability to have an immigration bail bond set. All of this is up to the judge’s discretion.

    Detainees will also need to have a permanent address. The address needs to be supplied to DHS and ICE so there is a physical address to mail all notifications to and so they can be easily reached if needed.

    Immigration officials may occasionally check the address given by the detainee to ensure it is still valid. Detainees should not be concerned about these occasional address checks as long as they have been in compliance with all court and bond requirements.

    If the detainee was arrested at any port of entry, they will not be eligible for an immigration bail bond. Whenever an illegal immigrant is detained at a port of entry or detained while trying to enter the country illegally (newly arriving aliens), they will be disqualified from being eligible to receive immigration bonds.

    Once the bond has been set, it will most likely be one of the types listed below:
    Delivery Bond – this bond is conditioned on the delivery of the detainee/alien and is the most common bond issued in immigration matters. The Delivery Bond allows the detainee to be released from custody with the condition that the co-signer/obligor will be responsible for ensuring the alien shows up for all hearings as specified in any appearance notices until all hearings have been completed.

    The co-signer’s obligation remains in place until a determination on the alien’s case has been made and if the determination includes deportation/removal, the co-signer is responsible for ensuring the alien is remanded to DHS for removal. If the co-signer does not comply, then the full amount of the bond will become due and payable.

    Voluntary Departure Bond – this is another common bond issued in immigration hearings. The Departure bond allows the detainee to be released on the condition that the obligor/co-signer will be responsible for ensure the detainee will depart the United States on or before whatever date is specified in the order granting voluntary departure. The obligor will need to provide documentation proving the departure within 3o days of the departing date specified in the order.

    Once the documentation has been provided or the alien has been physically accepted by the Department of Homeland Security for detention or deportation/removal, then the obligation of the co-signer will be terminated. If neither of these conditions are met, then the bond amount specified in the bond will become due and payable.

    How Much Are Immigration Bonds?

    Immigration bond amounts vary quite a bit so there is no way for a bonding company to determine what someone’s bond might be. It is solely at the immigration officer or immigration judge’s discretion. The officials will take several things into consideration before determining the amount of the bond or eve if a bond will be allowed.

    Picking Up Your Loved One From The Detention Center

    The immigration detention centers do not transport the detainees back to the city they were originally arrested in so once the bond has been posted, either a friend or family member will need to go to the detention center to pick up the detainee. Just a reminder that when you’re going to the detention center to pick up your loved one, may of the detention centers will check the ID’s of everyone in the vehicle, and they may also search your vehicle.

    If nobody is able to pick the detainee up, then transportation arrangements will need to be made at the time the bond is posted. That means either an airline ticket, train or a bus ticket will have to be purchased and the ticket number has to be sent in with the bond for verification.

    Additionally, if using one of these methods, transportation from the detention center to the station will need to be arranged as well, as the detention center will not provide that transportation, and they will not release the detainee if no transportation has been arranged.
