Immigration Bonds

Virginia Deportation Defense Attorneys

When you or your loved one is detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) it may be possible to bond them out of jail. Depending upon the case and the reason for their detention, a bond could be set for $5,000 or $10,000, enabling them to be released from custody until their next court date. There are a two different types of bonds, delivery bonds and voluntary departure bonds. The immigration attorneys at Fayad Law, PC can help you determine whether or not a bond will be possible, and can motion the proper court or agency to set that bond for you.

Delivery Bonds and Voluntary Departure Bonds

The delivery bond is only available to you or your loved one if a notice of custody conditions and warrant of arrest is issued in the case. The bond is an assurance to the court that the individual who is bonded out of custody will return for their next court date. The amount of the bond is set by a judge depending upon the severity of the case. If the individual does get a bond and posts it, they must show up for their next court date or the bond money is forfeited. Returning to court will generally result in the bond money being returned. Voluntary departure bonds are granted by a judge in the situation where the judge has ordered a voluntary departure from the country in exchange for closing the proceedings against an individual and the agreement to leave the country in lieu of forced deportation. If the individual leaves the country as agreed, the bond is returned to the person who paid for it.

Posting a bond is generally a sound choice as it frees the detainee to meet with an attorney and consult about future court dates, or to settle their personal affairs before departing the United States.
