An immigration bond is a surety bond. It is issued by the federal government and unlike other bond types, it is governed by federal laws. Immigration bonds also have a different fee than normal bonds in Florida. Immigration bonds have been federally mandated at 15% of the bail amount.
Immigration bonds also differ from normal bonds because they are classified as a federal civil matter. This simply means no crime has been officially committed. Although Homeland Security does pursue unlawful living in the US it is not considered a criminal charge (it is a civil matter).
The Immigration Bond Process
When someone is granted an immigration bond they must await the review of their case by an immigration judge. This is where we can help you or your loved one. We can return them home during the waiting process. You will need the following to post bail:
- Valid ID
- The defendant’s full name
- The defendant’s date of birth
- The county where he/she is detained
- The amount of the bond
Once we start the immigration bail bond process it can take 2-4 hours for the defendant to be released. The time the process of release takes is not controlled by us. It is controlled by the jail. Our goal is to make our end of the process as quick as possible.
