If you or a loved one has been detained by ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement), you may be wondering what comes next. One of the first steps in the process is posting an immigration bond. In this post, we’ll provide an overview of what an immigration bond is and how the process works in Arizona.
An immigration bond is a type of surety bond that is posted in order to secure the release of a person who has been detained by ICE. The individual who posts the bond is known as the obligor, and the person being released is known as the principal. The obligor agrees to pay a sum of money to the federal government if the principal does not appear for their scheduled court hearings.
In order to post an immigration bond, the obligor must contact a licensed bail bondsman. The bail bondsman will then post the bond with ICE on behalf of the obligor. The cost of an immigration bond depends on a number of factors, including the specific charges against the detainee and their criminal history, if any.
Once the bond has been posted, the detainee will be released from custody and will be required to appear for all scheduled court hearings. If they fail to do so, the obligor will forfeit the entire amount of the bond to the federal government.
