Immigration Bonds for the Adelanto Immigration Detention Facility

Immigration Bonds for the Adelanto Immigration Detention Facility

There are four types of immigration bonds:

  • G1 – Delivery Bond. This is a bond conditioned upon the delivery of an Alien and is the most common type of bond. It is used to ensure that a person will comply with a deportation order. A delivery bond allows an individual the opportunity to spend time with friends and family, as well as consult with an immigration attorney, prior to his or her court hearing.

  • G2 – Public Safety Bond. This bond is to ensure that the alien will not become a public charge. In other words, it ensures that the government will be reimbursed if a bonded alien receives any type of public assistance.

  • G3 – Voluntary Departure Bond. This bond is conditioned upon the voluntary departure of an alien and is used to ensure that the person returns to his or her home country in compliance with the conditions of the court order. A voluntary departure bond allows a detainee the opportunity to leave the country voluntarily within a specified time frame and gives the individual a chance to spend some time with family, make arrangements for themselves, and to leave under less stressful, less hurried circumstances. However, if the person chooses not to leave the country as agreed, the bond is forfeit and the person subject to pursuit, incarceration, and forcible deportation.

  • G4 – Order of Supervision Bond. This bond ensures that the individual complies with all conditions of the order of supervision and that he or she surrenders for removal.

A Delivery Bond and Voluntary Departure Bond are the two most common types. For help in understanding the bond process and procedures, call Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds today. (844)400-2245

How To Find My Immigration Bond Amount?

Once the ICE investigation is complete, and the subject is turned over to ERO, there should be two documents served on the defendant. The first is called a Notice to Appear, or NTA, and should include the following information:

  • The Alien Registration Number
  • The Subject's Name
  • How and Where the Subject Entered the US
  • Any Allegations Made by the DHS/ICE
  • Violations of US Law

The second document that should accompany the NTA is called Notice of Custody Determination, or NCD. This document should indicate a bond amount. If the NCD does not list a bond amount, or if a “no bond” is indicated on the document, the subject has the right to ask an immigration judge to set the bond amount. However, there may be up to a ten-day waiting period for the hearing.

How Much do Immigration Bonds Cost?

The amount of Federal Immigration Bonds can vary from as little as $500 to as much as $50,000 depending on criminal history and other circumstances. To pay the Immigration Bond on behalf of yourself or someone else, you will need to work directly with the Department of Homeland Security. Navigating the bureaucracy of the DHS can be difficult and time-consuming. However, if you have the full amount needed to pay the Federal Immigration Bond, it can be done. To do so, you must locate an immigration office that accepts bonds, and then purchase a cashier's check or money order for the amount of the bond.

The amount of the Federal bonds required to obtain the release of an undocumented immigrant will depend on several factors. These factors include:

  • Immigration Status
  • Criminal History
  • Employment Situation
  • Family Ties

The higher the flight risk, the higher the bond amount will likely be. The range for immigration bonds can run from $1,500 to $50,000 or more. Departure bonds are typically lower, often about $500.00. It is important to keep in mind that the government can take a long time, often up to a year, to return the bond amount to the person who posted it. This is just one reason that it makes sense to use the services of a bonding agency to post an immigration bond.

Find a 24-hour Immigration Bondsman

Immigration bonds are a form of Federal Bonds and are somewhat different from the bail bonds required for local criminal charges. However, if any criminal charges were made at the time of arrest, a California State Appearance Bond would need to be made at the same time. The rates for Federal Bonds range from 12% to 20%, depending on the charges and the amount of the bond required. The premium for appearance bonds is 10%, though discounts can be negotiated for people who have retained a private attorney, members of the military, and members of some other groups.

Spanish speaking bondsmen are available and most other languages can be accommodated.
