Immigration Bonds Explained
The Bond Process
The immigration bond process begins with an arrest of an illegal alien by the Department of Homeland Security Immigrations Customs Enforcement, and that person will be taken to a federal law enforcement station for processing and booking.
Next, the immigration bond amount may be set by an immigration judge or via custody determination after an interview with the alien by a Deportation Officer. The amount of an immigration bond is determined by the Department of Homeland Security—there is no standard amount. An outside party (Indemnitor) must pay—also referred to as post or “put up”—the immigration bond. If the outside party cannot pay the full amount of the bond, they must make arrangements with an immigration bonding company.
This is where Guilford County Bail Bonding helps you, to get the immigration bond posted in order to get the person out of jail.
An immigration bail bond, technically a “surety bond”, is a three-party contract between the Homeland Security, the Obligor (Surety) and co-obligor (Agent), and the Principal (also called defendant, respondant or alien). It is the Surety/ Agent who guarantees to Homeland Security that the alien--when released on bond--will be present for each and every Notice to Appear (NTA) in the future. In turn, the Indemnitor (or co-signer) guarantees to the Bondsman that he/she will make sure that the alien appears when required. For this service, the Indemnitor is charged a bond fee or premium. Guilford County Bail Bonding charges a one-time percentage of the full bond amount, with no annual premium percentage fees thereafter. Some companies charge an annual premium percentage of the set bond with a two-year minimum, which will result in a higher cost in the long run. The co-signer of the contract (usually a family member or friend of the detainee) guarantees to pay the full amount of the bond if the alien fails to make scheduled appearances.
