How Bail Works


When a defendant is arrested there is a monetary amount set by the jail for the circumstances of the arrest. They will enter the jails processing room where the booking procedure starts. This can take from 2-10 hours, depending on the facility.


Once the person is fully booked the Bail Bond Company are able to go on-line or call the facility to obtain the necessary information for their release. The cost for the bail is mandated by the Department Of Insurance which is 10%. Depending on the circumstances this amount can be negotiated. The information from the jail is explained to the person negotiating the bail.


The Bail Bond is posted at the facility where the defendant is housed. It is up to the defendant and co-signer to assure the Bail Bond Co. the court dates will be met each and every time by the defendant.


If a court date is missed, it is up to the Bail Bond Co. to locate the defendant and re-schedule his appearance. If the defendant can not be located we will contact the co-signer and inform them of their responsibility. The co-signers liability is the full amount of the bail posted.


A Bounty Hunter is hired if the Bail Bond Co. cannot locate the defendant and the co-signer is liable for their cost.

If he or she does not contact us, it is our responsibility to contact the co-signer to discuss the location of the defendant.
