On October 20, 2006 I had paid an Immigration Bond in the amount of $ 2,500 to "ICE" (Immigration & Custom Enforcement) in El Paso / Texas, which was fully reimbursed on April of 2009! The US Authorities are very correct and honest, and I just have received a Check in the amount of $ 2573.97 (also see photo Copy of the check, I have received) Conditions of getting a refund of the paid bond is, that the immigrant has to show up to all schedduled Court Hearings though, and also to notify the ICE and / or Immigration-Court Authorities of any change of address. Purpose of the Immigration Bond is only to make sure, that the Immigrant will show up to all schedduled Court hearings, and that he will not be on the run... The Refund of the Immigration Court Bond did not depend on the outcome of the decision of the Immigration Court Authorities. So it doesn't matter of a positive or negative outcome and decison the Court may determine. The Immigrant only has to follow up with the conditions and terms of the Bond, which mainly means to show to ALL Immigration Court Hearings though! A refund of the Immigration Bond also did not depend, if or when the Immigrant may have a lawyer or will hire a lawyer, or if he has no lawyer at all. There is also the possibility, to send a Refund (Check) worldwide into foreign countries outside the US, like as show with the Check I have received, and which was send to Germany. It is also possible, to cash that check in a foreign bank, but additional Bank fees may apply, and they are no refundable though! I'am sure, there is thousands and thousands of Immigrants, who are already been posted and paid a Bond, and who are also complied with the terms and condition of the Immigration Bond, and dont know, how and if they can get their Bond Money back. The Mayority of those Immigrants, I'am sure, are outside of the US, which will make more hard and difficult to accomplish to get the Bond Money back. Anybody, who may need help, Tipps or advice of any kind are welcome to get in Contact with me! My Address is written down on the Check, which you will see above! I ask, to write me only in English or German language though! Unfortunatelly, I do not speak, write nor understand Spanish! Very truly yours... The Pictures of the check are visible in my profile!
