What is a Bail Bond?

A bail bond (surety bond) is a financial guarantee to the court that the defendant will appear in each and every court appearance as the court directs. Failure of the defendant to comply with the conditions of the court could result in warrants issued and bail bonds forfeited.

Surety Bonds are written by a bail bond agent who is the surety. There will be usually one of two types of surety bonds.

  1. Personal Indemnity Bonds are used when a qualified co-signer enters into a private contract with the bonding agent. The co-signer is guaranteeing the bond in full against any loss to the bonding agent.
  2. Collateral bonds are usually applied to larger bonds. This is where the co-signer enters into a private contract with the bonding agent and actually gives some type of property as collateral on the bond. Usual types of property are: Piece of real estate, cars, trucks, boats, RV’s, etc.

There is a premium charged by the bonding agent for the posting of these bonds. Due to the circumstances on each individual bond and co-signer, contact us for these individual rates.

Property Bonds are 100% set, controlled, and approved by the court. An individual(s) would put up a piece of local property with approximately 150% value of the bond in clear equity. The court would not take less than second position in a lien that they would file again this property. The Lien is held against the property until released by the court at the discretion of the court. This type of bond MUST be 100% approved by the court and this type of bond is also usually done on large bonds.
Cash Bond is cash money paid directly to the jail to get the person released. The money is controlled by the court until the bond is released by the court and then the money is ordered to be refunded by the court.

What is a Bail Agent or Bail Bondsman?

A Bail Agent is the surety to the court guaranteeing the appearance of the defendant for the value of the bond set by the court. Bail allows a defendant to continue their everyday activities, work, family, etc, while defending themselves from charges brought against them. This is a right provided by the Constitution for reasonable bail and that you are innocent until proven guilty in a Court of Law.
