Things to Know about Immigration Bail Bonds?
If an illegal immigrant has been arrested by the Immigration and Naturalization Service and has been issued a warrant of arrest, he/she is eligible for an immigration bond. An immigration bond, just like other bail bonds will guarantee that an individual charged with violations of the law will appear in court. The amount of a bond must be enough to ensure that the defendant will appear for all further immigration proceedings. If eligible, the illegal alien can be considered for the bail bond. The eligibility depends on whether the person will pose a danger to property or persons or not, and that he/she is likely to appear before court proceedings in the future to the satisfaction of the immigration officer.
The immigration bail can be posted only when the INS declares the alien eligible. A private company rather than the INS can pose immigration bonds. The company should be provided with the name and registration number of the alien together with the facility where he/she is being held. Everything, including the annual premium payment paid to the bail agent, that is basically required for immigration bail bonds is the same requirements for other types of bail bonds.
Immigration bonds require casualty license instead of the usual license. When the alien is summoned but does not appear in court, then the bail bond is immediately forfeited. Because of language barriers, bail bond agents sometimes find it difficult to provide immigration bail bonds. The processes in collecting the collateral vary in immigration cases.

There are other options given to the alien and one of them is to intentionally leave the country under a predetermined time and with their personal expenses.
