How Bail Works:

When an individual is arrested, typically that person will be taken to a local law enforcement agency. Once processed and booked into jail, the inmate may be given bond at that time.  In some cases the inmate will need to go before a judge for bail to be set.  If bond is to be set by a judge, that usually takes place the following business day.

Bail is designed to guarantee the appearance of a defendant in court at the time the judge directs.

There are a few basic release options. These options are:

1

Surety Bond

A surety bond can be posted by a licensed bail agent or agency. Our agency charges a none refundable percentage of the bail bond. In most cases we will also require an indemnity agreement to be signed. This indemnity agreement is to guarantee the defendants appearance in court. With money on the line, our bail agency has a financial interest in ensuring that the defendant will appear in court each end every time the court orders them to appear. If the defendant does not appear in court (skips), we have the financial incentive to find the defendant and bring him/her to court or jail.

Get Started

In order for our bail agency to assist in providing our service, the defendant, friend or relative must contact us. Once we are contacted, an interview or appointment will take place. This process happens very fast!

Get a Co-Signer

By involving the family and friends of a defendant cosigning the bond, our bail agency can be reasonably assured that the defendant released on our bond will appear to all of his/her court appearances.

We'll Post Bond

After this procedure is completed, our bail agent will post a bond for the full bail amount, financially guaranteeing the defendant’s return to court as scheduled.

2

Release on Personal (Own) Recognizance (P. R.):

A surety bond can be posted by a licensed bail agent or agency. Our agency charges a none refundable percentage of the bail bond. In most cases we will also require an indemnity agreement to be signed. This indemnity agreement is to guarantee the defendants appearance in court.

Walk Through Bond (not all bonds can be done this way):

If you are in danger of being incarcerated because of a warrant for your arrest, we can try to help you avoid going to jail by providing our services of a “WALK THROUGH BOND”.

Some Tips on Bail Bonding Agents/Bail Agencies

Licensing

Make sure you only deal with a licensed bail agent. Ask to see the bail agent’s license and identification prior to any bail transaction.

Get Copies

Make sure you are given copies of all signed contracts and agreements from your bail agent for your records to keep on file/for your own records.

Get Receipts

Make sure you are given itemized receipts for all charges. Make sure you are given copies of all signed contracts and agreements.

Check the Fee

Make sure the bail agent charges you only legal rates not to exceed 15% or $50 minimum per bond plus bonding, booking, and filing fees required by the court and or detention facility. Any additional charges should be itemized and explained to your satisfaction.

Understand Financing

If financing is provided, make sure you understand the terms of the financing agreement prior to signing and be sure you are given copies of anything you sign. This will ensure you aren't being taken advantage of by a bail agent who isn't there to help you.

Look for Customer Service

Make sure the bail agent you contract with will be available to you after the bail bond has been posted. Part of what you pay for is service. Any professional bail agent or bail agency will be available for questions or concerns throughout the entire process.
