Frequently Asked Questions


How can I secure a bail bond?

All you have to do is call us with some relevant information and we can give you a bail bond within a matter of minutes. The information is primarily for identification purposes and to find out how you know the person in jail. Depending on how big the bond is going to be, we may ask for collateral to secure the bond.

What is a Bail Bond?

A bail bond is technically called a “surety bond”, and is a contractual undertaking guaranteed by a bail bondsman who is licensed in the county in which they post the bond. The bail agent guarantees to the court payment of the full amount of the bond if the defendant fails to appear for their scheduled court appearances.

How is a Bond Structured?

A bail bond consists of two main sections. One section is the 10% fee which is paid to the bondsman as a percentage of the final bond amount. This can be paid in many ways and we’ll even arrange a short term loan if you are unable to pay up front. We then need to fully collateralize the bond, using whatever assets you might have or cash to fully back the bond amount. If we don’t feel collateral is needed, we will use a signature bond, which means that we trust you without the need for the backing of assets to protect us.

What Happens to the Arrestee?

The person who has just been arrested will be taken into a holding facility and numerous details will be taken. A bail amount will be set and the person will be given a full understanding of their legal rights. Once this has been done, the person is then released on bail.

What is Own Recognizance?

Own recognizance basically means that the defendant is released on unsecured bail, backed by the government for whatever reason. This is rare but if the defendant is deemed as eligible, he or she will be interviewed by review staff who will then decide whether they should be given release on Own Recognizance.

What is Forfeiture?

Forfeiture occurs when the defendant does appear in court when summoned. We will work with you towards providing a solution if your defendant does not appear. Forfeiture does not completely destroy any chance of a solution being found, but it can severely hinder the process so it is important to do your best to ensure that the defendant appears in court.

What is Exoneration?

Exoneration occurs when you are fully released of responsibility for the defendant, following the full proceedings of the court, and after the release of the accused.

How Long Does a Bond Last?

Until the court case is over and every charge has been disposed of.

If I Bail Someone Out of Jail, What is my Responsibility?

When you bail someone out of jail, you are called the bail bond indemnitor. You take full responsibility for the defendant to show up in court when you bail them out of jail.
