People tend to confuse an immigration bond with a bail bond. A bail bond is what ensures that a defendant appears in court on all the set dates as they await the outcome of their case. An immigration bond may seem similar in the sense that the person shall be obliged to appear for all their court dates, but in this case, they have been found to be in a country unlawfully, and are awaiting the outcome of their immigration case, that could result in a residency, deportation, or any other decision. Bail bonds fall under the jurisdiction of the state where the case is held. An immigration bond falls under the docket of the federal government. Bail bonds are known to have the same premium rate, which is ten percent of the bond value. Immigration bonds do not have such a uniform reference percentage or figure.
As much as the federal government will be in charge of the immigration bond, the state in which the bond is sought shall determine the amount imposed on it. The government determines which and how some insurance companies shall offer these immigration bonds. When the insurance company sets out to offer this bond in various states, it must first apply for a premium rate at those states in question. As soon as the state approves of its filed rates, this shall be the rate they will impose on all clients within its borders.
This is why there are differences in what each company charges in the same state. IT is therefore important for you to grasp the differences are when you are choosing. Otherwise, you may miss an opportunity to make huge savings. There are also companies that may ask you to pay once, and others that will ask you to keep paying annually. You will also get more diverse payment terms from different companies. Some companies impose fixed rates for a set number of years, after which you may extend their services. Should your case end earlier, you will be left making payments for a service you no longer need. You therefore need to be careful with where you agree to settle, as there is a chance you may have bought an expensive for nothing plan that you do not need.
You, therefore, need to find out from the company you approach certain things. You need to know the overall figure for their services. You need to ask if it final or not. They also, need to produce proof of their authority to dispense this service.
Desperation can easily make you take up an unfair offer from these companies. You will be left carrying its burden well into the future. You need to thus look for the best company you can find.
