We are talking about the basics of Bail bonds today. Many peoples only knowledge about bail and the justice system is from TV shows and movies. But this is unfortunate since they often are inaccurate. If you aren’t 100% certain what a bail bond is, then this blog is for you.

  • A bail bond is the money that is paid to the court to release a defendant from jail until the time and date of the trial. This payment is to ensure that the arrested person will return to court. The amount of the bail bond is determined by the judge, and it includes a variety of factors.
  • In many cases, the family and friends of someone that has been arrested aren’t able to pay the full bail amount. Since the bail amount can be thousands. This is where a bail bond company comes in. We will provide the funds for bail, and all you or your loved ones have to pay is 8-10% of the total bail bond fee.
  • Once the bail is posted by the bail bond company, they will be released quickly, and they will be able to be at home until all of the required court dates.
  • If the defendant doesn’t return on the required dates, then this will cost the family who posted bail thousands of dollars. You will then have a warrant issued against you for not returning when required. This makes the entire situation much worse.
