If someone you know has been detained by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and you want to get them released as quickly as possible, an immigration bail bond may be required. Immigration bonds are also known as ICE Form I-352.
An immigration bond is money paid to secure a detained immigrant’s release. This bond serves as a guarantee to the U.S. government that, once released from detention, the bonded immigrant will attend all court hearings and abide by U.S. law.
There are 4 types of immigration bonds:
- G1 Delivery Bond: This bond is used to ensure the immigrant bonded will comply with their deportation order, if so ordered.
- G2 Public Safety Bond: This bond ensures that the U.S. Government will be reimbursed should a bonded immigrant accept any form of public assistance.
- G3 Voluntary Departure Bond: is when an immigrant is allowed voluntary departure and is used to ensure the alien returns to their home country.
- G4 Order of Supervision Bond: ensures the immigrant fully perform all conditions of the Order of Supervision and surrenders willingly for deportation.
