Frequently Asked Questions

Who is bailfromjail.com?

Bailfromjail.com is a Florida Bail Agent Network with years of experience in providing bail bond services as quickly as possible.

What should I know before I contact bailfromjail.com?

There is certain information that will be helpful and will make the release process even faster.

Ask the person in custody:

  • Their location (City, County, and Name of Jail)
  • Their full name and booking number

The Bail Agent will need this information in order to contact the jail. The Bail Agent can get the booking number for you if you forgot or if it was not available.

How much is the bail and what do I have to pay?

The Bail Agent will get the bond information when they contact the jail if you don't have it. For bond amounts $1000.00 and below, you pay just $100.00, and for bonds in excess of $1000.00 you pay only 10% of the bond amount.

How do I post a bond?

There are several ways in which a person may be released from custody.

  • You can use a bondsman this means that you will pay a fee and need to use some form of collateral.
  • You can post cash for the full amount of the bond with the court or jail.

What is collateral?

Collateral is some form of property placed within the bail agent's legal control, which may be liquidated in the event the defendant does not show for the court proceeding, and the agent suffers a financial loss. Essentially, collateral is a way of insuring the defendant will go back to court and complete his/her obligation to the court. Collateral may not be required in some cases.

Do I get my money back after the case is over?

There are a few exceptions to this but premium paid is non refundable once a person is released from custody on a bail bond. This fee is what allowed the defendant to get out of jail and is fully earned once the defendant is out of custody.

What if I think the defendant is not going to show up for court after I have posted the bond?

There are remedies that can be done here as well, contact the bondsman as soon as possible so that they can discuss your option in full detail with you!

Can the defendant leave the state or the country while on bond?

You will have to get permission from the bonding office in writing before attempting to do so. If the court has given you direct instructions not to leave the state or country you must then get permission from the bail agent and the court before leaving, otherwise you are subject to arrest!
