No quick and simple method is available to check on the status of an immigration bond. However, you can gain some idea of the status of the bond by checking on the status of the person for whom you supplied the bond. For example, if the person whom you bonded out recently missed an immigration hearing then you know that the bond has been canceled. Likewise, if the person that you bonded out had an immigration court hearing and was granted some kind of relief such that they could legally remain in the United States, again the bond is canceled.
While checking on the status of a bond through the proxy of checking on the status of the person that you bonded may give you the answer that you need, what would you do if you have lost contact with the person that you bonded out? Under these circumstances we recommend filing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA ) request with ICE to get an update. While this is effective, and is a relatively simple process for the obligor, it could possibly take three months to get a response from ICE. If you need help with this second approach as you have lost contact with the person you bonded out, you can contact us to file a FOIA request.
