If you find an outstanding warrant for a loved one and need to secure a bail bond, we realize this process may be new to you. To help assist you we have put together the following list of questions we are frequently asked during the bail bond process (FAQ’s):
Once someone is accused of a crime s/he will be arrested and booked into the county jail. At that time s/he will get fingerprinted, and a mugshot taking. The officer(s) will ask s/he for a statement. The courts will then set a bail bond amount and any other stipulations for release from custody.
Bail is a financial agreement on behalf of the defendant to secure their release from jail. The bail bonding agency will file all documents with the court(s) to guarantee the defendants release from custody. Once all that happens the bail bond agency that guarantees the defendants release will essentially become their jailer. They will require the defendant to appear at all court hearings and comply with all other stipulations ordered by the courts until their case is completed.
The bail bond agency works with the person(s) who want to bond a defendant from jail. The bondsman will charge a fee usually about 10% of the bail bond set by the courts. The fee is nonrefundable. The bail bondsman will require some legal paperwork with the person(s) that holds them accountable for up to total amount of the bond if the defendant was to fail to appear in court. In some cases the bail bondsman will require some form of collateral such as cash in the value of the bond, a mortgage contingency agreement, or anything else of value.
Collateral is anything of value that the bail bonding agency holds to indemnify themselves from any loss. The collateral will be returned once the bail bonding agency is exonerated from all liability from the bond(s).
The bail bondsman will consider each case to determine if any collateral is needed. In most cases the only collateral needed is signature from the defendant and person(s) guaranteeing the bond.
A bond can’t be posted until after the courts have set the bond amount. This may not happen on the day of the arrest. Once bond has been set and the bondsman posts the bond(s) on behalf of a defendant the jail will process that person out. The release time varies on many circumstances and also varies between each county jail. In most cases the defendant is released within a few hours from the time the bond was posted. We recommend you ask the bondsman when you are speaking to them as they will be most familiar with the procedures for each jail and they will be happy to provide that information to you.
