Bail Bond Frequently Asked Questions
What is a bail bond?
A bail bond is a monetary guarantee to the court that a defendant will appear each and every time the defendant is ordered to do so while the case is pending.
How much do you charge for your services?
The cost, or premium, is 10% of the total amount of the bond. If the bond is less than $1000, our minimum fee is $100. The fee for Federal Bonds is $15%.
Do I get my premium back?
Bail bond premiums are non-refundable, as they are used for the bail agent's expenses.
What is a bail bond indemnitor?
A bail bond indemnitor is the co-signer for the bail bond. This person is the one held financially responsible if the defendant fails to appear for the full amount of the bond. It is important that the co-signer remains in contact with the defendant until the case is resolved.
What is collateral?
Collateral is used in order to ensure that the defendant appears in court by applying the leverage of risking another's collateral and to guarantee if the defendant does fails to appear that the indemnitor has assets to be able to pay the bond. As long as the defendant goes to court every time required, your collateral will be promptly returned once the case is over.
What can be used for collateral?
Collateral may take different forms from promissory notes and indemnity agreements to automobiles titles, real estate deeds, cash or anything of value.
When do I get my Collateral back?
When the defendant has completed all of his/her court appearances.
What if the defendant fails to appear at his court date?
The court will issue a warrant and notify us of the failure to appear. We will assist you in either reinstating the bail with the court or surrendering the person back into custody. If we are unsuccessful, the court will demand the full amount of the bail.
How long does it take to get someone out of jail?
The paperwork takes about 20 minutes. The release time after the jail receives the bond could be a couple of hours depending on how busy the jail is. Sometimes faster!
