It is possible for a loved one to be arrested and detained by immigration and customs enforcements. The most logical thing to do will be to figure out how to have your loved ones freed, you will need immigration bail bonds. If you manage to free your loved one they can await trial as free people. If you can’t acquire the bonds will see the person spend time in a cell until the day of trial. Before you begin with the process you need to understand that you will have to adhere with some strict protocols if your detained immigrant is to be freed. Detained immigrants have two types of bail bonds that they can access. The alien has an option of delivery bonds or voluntary debenture bonds.
The two types of bonds are available for the illegal aliens that are considered to be a potential threat to national security. The first type, delivery bond, is one that a judge or an agent of the customs department will offer to the alien. This type bond will be offered to that alien that has a standing order where they will appear in court within a very short period. Some of this particular types of bail bonds will give the alien some time with their families or some time to find a lawyer that will represent them. If the alien has a person that has agreed to fund then bond, the person will be held liable to ensure that the alien appears before the court on the appointed dates and on time.
With this particular bail bond, the alien will be set free but has to meet certain conditions, they have to leave the country that they are being detained on a particular date and pay a specified amount of money as will be specified by the customs and immigration department. With the money being paid and the alien having left the country as instructed, the immigration and customs will refund the money to the person who funded it. Failing to leave the country will cause the voluntary debenture to be forfeited to the immigration and customs.
Immigration bail bonds will not cost the same for every alien the immigration judge and the immigration and customs department will look at factors like the criminal, history of the alien’s family in the country and employment. If it is established that the alien is a flight risk, the amount that will be set is going to be high as well. It can take some time for the government to return the money to the person who funded it sometimes even a year or two. Posting the bail is important as it ensures that the detained person is united with family and they can discuss their case with an attorney.
