The bail amount is what is demanded by a judge for the release from jail of someone who has been arrested, but not yet convicted of the crime. Bail is part of our U.S. Constitution that allows a person to be released from jail while awaiting trial. The cost for bail varies based on the criminal charges, typically $2000 or more.
How in the world does someone come up with thousands of dollars unexpectedly to get bailed out jail? Fortunately, there are bail agents nearby who offer bail bond services which allow a person to be released from jail for only a small percentage of the full bail amount ordered by the courts. State bond premiums are usually around 10% and federal bonds are around 15%.
After someone is arrested, he or she is taken to the county jail. Upon arrival, the person goes through what is called ‘the booking process’, which includes fingerprinting, mugshots and a statement provided by the defendant.
If you contact a bail bondsman immediately following the arrest and get the bail bond process initiated immediately, the person arrested can be out of jail within two to eight hours after the paperwork is completed and the bond premium is paid.
Bail Bonds Now makes the bail bonds process so simple you can actually post bail online by using the forms on our website. This tool is completely secure and helps to make posting a bond much easier than ever before.
When someone does not show up for their court date, this is called ‘bail bond forfeiture’ or ‘jumping bail’. Regardless of whether or not the defendant appears in court as scheduled, the bail bond premium is not refundable. However, if any collateral was put up for a bail bond by an indemnitor, the collateral will be lost as the courts will demand the full amount from the bondsman. A bench warrant may also be issued by the judge for the arrest of the defendant. If you or someone you care about is concerned there may be an arrest warrant issued for them, use this free arrest warrant search tool to find out.
