Immigration Bonds in Virginia | Bail Bond Services

Virginia Immigration Bond Services
If a person gets arrested and they weren’t born in the United States, chances are Immigration and Customs  Enforcement (ICE) will put a detainer on that person. An ICE detainer requests the local jail hold a person for up to 48 hours once the state bond is posted. This hold gives ICE the chance to come investigate the persons immigration status. Or worse, arrest the person on immigration charges. We know the system is confusing enough. Once ICE gets involved, the confusion gets worse. Let us guide you and answer any questions you have.
If ICE has not placed the person in custody within 48 hours, the local jail MUST release them.

An ICE detainer does not mean the person is going to be deported. It just means ICE wants to interview that person. If ICE feels the person is not a threat to the public, the detainer can be lifted. If it’s lifted, the person is freed from jail. However, if the detainer isn’t lifted, that person will be taken to an Immigration Detention Center. The person then sees an Immigration judge and could be given an immigration bond. Once the person is given an immigration bond, call us. We’ll need a little information such as the detainees full name. The country they’re from. The Alien number. And a couple of other things to get our immigration bond services process started. It’s important to call us as soon as possible. Immigration bonds can only be posted Monday through Friday between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.

Types of Immigration Bail Bonds

There are two types of immigration bonds available. If it's determined the detainee has been deported before. Or if they're charged with certain crimes, they will not be given an immigration bond. The two types of immigration bonds are explained below. Delivery bond – An illegal immigrant who has been detained by ICE may be eligible for a delivery bond based on the determination of ICE or an immigration judge. The detainee must receive an arrest warrant and a notice of custody conditions from ICE to be released on a delivery bond. The purpose of the delivery bond is to ensure that the detainee shows up to all immigration hearings. It allows the person to spend time with family. Also consult with an immigration lawyer leading up to a court hearing. Voluntary departure bond – In some cases, detainees are given the option to voluntarily leave the country at their own expense within a certain amount of time. The departure bond--if paid in full to ICE--is refundable once the person has left the country. But will be forfeited if the person fails to leave.
How much do Immigration Bonds cost?The immigration bond amount is based on several factors. The person's criminal history and employment situation. Family ties in the United States. The higher the flight risk, the higher the bond amount. Most immigration bonds range from $5,000 up to $25,000. We must charge 15% - 20% of the bond amount. Collateral is also normally required. If collateral isn't an option, we can put a GPS monitor on the detainee until the case is over. A Way Out Bail Bonds works with a number of Immigration attorneys in the area. We've seen these attorneys help people become legal citizens by the time the case is over.

FEDERAL BONDS – Bail Bond Services

A Way Out Bail Bonds also offers Federal Bail Bond Services.  Federal bail bonds come into play when dealing with federal crimes. These types of crimes include defacement of federal property. Crimes that may have crossed state lines. Crimes investigated and prosecuted by federal agencies such as the FBI. Crimes such as kidnapping, tax evasion, drug trafficking, are all federal crimes.

Federal bail bonds are another service we offer. Federal bail amounts are usually much higher than the bail amounts for state bail bonds. The premium is also higher. A premium rate of 15% is standard in Virginia for Federal Bail Bonds. State bail bonds are appearance only. Federal bail bonds are appearance AND performance. If someone out on a state bail bond gets rearrested, the judge normally will not forfeit the bond. If a person out of jail on a federal bail bond violates any condition of their bail, the bond will be forfeited and need to be paid immediately. State charges, often enable the defendant to bond out of jail before even seeing a judge. If someone has been charged with federal crimes, the defendant will almost always stay in jail until they're able to see the judge. In Virginia federal court, judges often add a “Nebbia” requirement to the bond. This requires that the defendant shows the money came from legitimate sources. A Nebbia hearing is the process where the defendant demonstrates through a motion that is presented prior to the writing or posting of a federal bail bond that this proof has been met. It's important that the bondsman you use to write the federal bond is familiar with federal court procedures. Always choose a bail bondsman who has experience with Nebbia requirements. The bondsman is normally the person who analyzes the financial assets being used to secure the bond. Then the bondsman puts together what is called a “Nebbia Proffer". Another service we offer. Once the "Nebbia Proffer" is put together, the bondsman gives it to the defendant's attorney. It's then given to the prosecutor. If the prosecutor doesn't agree the Nebbia requirements have been met, the matter will be set for a Nebbia Hearing for the judge to decide the issue.

GPS Monitoring – Bail Bond Services

GPS Monitoring is another one of bail bond services we offer. GPS monitoring has become a very effective means of monitoring defendants out on bail. Defendants can be fitted with an ankle monitor that can notify us within minutes if a defendant exceeds the boundary restrictions that have been placed upon them. Inclusion zones can be set up to warn us when the defendant goes somewhere off-limits. Exclusion zones can also be set up.

If the defendant gets anywhere near an area their not supposed to be, we’re instantly notified. We can also give the victim a beacon. The beacon’s signal is attached to the gps monitor worn by the defendant. The beacon service will notify the victim of the defendant’s whereabouts.

The use of GPS ankle monitors are boundless. Our tracking units use a Global Positioning System to determine the defendant's precise location. However, gps units are not absolute. Ankle monitors can be removed by cutting. The defendant can still flee. The difference is the length of time for notification. In the past a defendant may have skipped bail a week before we knew. However, a monitor will put us on a defendant in minutes of a suspected violation. We're notified if its tampered with, 24 hours a day. By putting a GPS Monitor on a defendant it lowers the jail population. That helps with jail overcrowding. It also gives the defendant a chance to carry on with their normal routines. The cost of the GPS monitor is paid by the defendant. There's no cost to the tax payers. Another service we offer is testifying in bail hearings. We explain to judges the benefits of using GPS Monitors. Call us if you have any questions about GPS Monitoring, or if you're ever in need of one of our many bail bond services.

How do I get an immigration bail bond in Virginia?

There are two ways to pay for an immigration bond:

Surety bond – The detainee’s friends or family can call A Way Out Bail Bonds. We typically charge 15-20% of the total bond amount. The bondsman fee is always non-refundable. Immigration bonds should be fully collateralized with either cash, credit cards or equity in a home. If collateral isn’t possible we can still post the immigration bond. However, the alien will be required to wear one of our GPS bracelets while their case is active.

Cash bond – The detainee’s friends or family can pay the full bond amount directly to ICE, and that money will be refunded once the detainee has attended all mandatory hearings in immigration court. The cash bond can be paid by cash, money order, Cashier’s check, or U.S. bonds or notes.
