Like a bond in a criminal matter, an immigration bond is an amount of money, established by the immigration judge, which you can post to the court in exchange for your release from ICE detention. So long as you appear at your immigration court hearings and follow other requirements set forth in the bond, you or the person who posted the money for the bond will receive the money back at the end of the proceeding. However, if you fail to appear in court or follow other orders, the amount of money paid for the bond is forfeited and kept by the U.S. Treasury.
A bond is not available to everyone. Before the court will take a bond into consideration, there are a few requirements that must be satisfied. For instance, you won’t be given the choice of a bond if you are deemed to be a flight risk or a danger to the community. Being deported, having prior convictions for a crime, or having a history of skipping court dates are all things that can prevent someone from being eligible for bond. On the contrary hand, there may be circumstances in your favour that justify granting a bond, such as local family ties or community ties that increase the likelihood that you’ll attend your court hearings.
