How Immigration Bonds Work
A common phenomenon in most countries is the immigration of persons from one country to the other. Immigrants in this respect seek for any possible opportunity to gain access to the country of desire and this comes as a great challenge to most of the governments. Authorities have in this regard set a number of rules and regulations that such people need to meet in order to be accepted into the country. Immigrants therefore must abide by the set rules and regulations to be accepted otherwise face detention by the authorities. Freedom from this custody can only be achieved if the immigrant applies for an immigration bond to be paid by a loved one who is a resident in the country.
The main purpose of immigration bonds is to offer immigrants freedom from custody after failing to meet the set requirements. Release from custody, therefore, comes after the amount set by the courts are paid by a loved one of the immigrants. Bond amounts paid in this respect serves as an assurance for the immigrant to make appearances for the case hearing in courts. After completion of the hearing, the amounts deposited are paid back to the payer in full and this helpful page.
Immigrants in custody are offered with two choices of bonds. Delivery bonds are paid for an immigrant who is facing court proceedings and thus required to appear in court for the hearings. The person paying for the bond in this respect is required to know the immigrant well. Release of the immigrant allows for time to engage a lawyer to offer representation to the immigrant among other benefits and this helpful page.
A voluntary departure bond is also available and choice for the immigrants in custody. A departure bond is common with immigrants whose case has been completed and the determination has been to deport them. With this bond, the immigrant is offered a chance to leave the country at will but this has to be within a set period of time. The payer of the bond in this regard is allowed to get a refund of the amounts after the immigrant honors the ruling o the courts and willingly leaves the country in time.
An immigration bond s only offered after the immigrant has been detained and presented to the court as per the law. It is the responsibility of the courts to determine if the bond is to be offered and this includes consideration of among other things the threats that the immigrant may pose to the country. The payer of the bond then comes in to play after a determination has been made and offers with the set amounts. The payer then contacts the relevant offices where the immigrant is detained to make the payments and have the immigrant released from custody.
