How Bail Works

How Bail Works

The process of bonding a friend or loved one out of jail involves a contractual undertaking between the individual in need of bail bond services (the defendant) ; the bail agent, and a guarantor, the person who will meet with the bail bond agent to pay and complete all necessary paperwork; also known as (the indemnitor).

The indemnitor pays the bail bond agent a fee for his services, usually 10% of the entire bond amount and promises to ensure that the defendant will appear in court each and every time the judge requires him/her to. Collateral may be required to secure the bond, to protect against any losses that may occur if the defendant intentionally skips out. Vehicle titles, real estate, and cash are some of the most commonly used forms of collateral.

In the event the defendant intentionally fails to appear at a court hearing, and cannot be located by the bail agent or law enforcement , the indemnitor must pay the entire amount of the bond, or risk forfeiting the collateral used to secure the bond. If the defendant is located and arrested, the indemnitor may be responsible for all expenses incurred in locating the defendant.

When an agreement is reached, the bail agent will post the bond at the jail securing the release of your friend or loved one.
