What is a bail bond?
A bail bond is a contractual guarantee, issued by a licensed bail bond agent, between the agent the defendant and the court which promises the court the full bail payment if the defendant does not show up for their scheduled court hearing.
How long after an arrest does it take to set a bail bond?
Each state has laws which specify when a bail hearing must take place after an arrest. For most states the hearing must be held 48 to 72 hours after the arrest – but weekends and holidays will not count towards this time.
How exactly can a bail bond be issued?
Once bail has been set by the judge at a bail hearing, and the defendant has contacted a bail bond service, the bail and bonds are usually accomplished within 24 hours of the bail hearing.
What is the cost of a bail bond?
Once again, each state sets the fee for a bail bond, and in most states the fee is typically 10% of the total bail. This fee is paid to the bond agent for the bond service and it is a non-refundable fee.
What happens if a defendant flees?
If a defendant flees the full amount of the bail is due to the court. The defendant will be charged with costs associated with their recovery and the full amount of the bail.
What type of collateral can be used for a bail bond?
Almost anything of value can be used as collateral for a bail bond including retirement or private savings, property, or personal items of value such as jewelry or antique collections which belong to the defendant or to family members or friends who accept responsibility for the collateral.
When does the bail bond end?
The bail bond is exonerated once a defendant completes his court appearances and the case is adjudicated. Regardless of the outcome of their hearing, as long as they show up the bonds are exonerated.
