Bail bonds services are useful for any defendant who does not have the financial means to put up large sums of money that may require consideration for your release from custody. When the judge sets a bail amount, you have two options:
1. Pay the entire sum of money to the Court; or
2. Pay a small portion of the bail amount, usually 10%, to a bail bondsman.
If you are able to pay the entire sum to the Court, and assuming you make all your scheduled Court appearances, you will get all of that money back. However, many times the bail is set too high and you simply cannot afford it, especially if you are already setting aside money to pay for legal representation.
Having a bail agent is a much more affordable option and, for some, the only option. If you cannot afford the bail set by Court, a bail bonds company is your only road to freedom. This will give you a chance to resume your life, whether it’s going back to school, working or simply having a chance to spend time with family and friends before you face possible conviction.
Keep in mind the bail bondsman does take a risk. If you run from justice, the Court will hold the bail bondman responsible for the entire bail amount.
- How much does a bail bond cost?
- What happens if I don't have the money?
- How long do you stay in jail if you don't post bail?
The common cost of bail is a typical 10% of the posted amount set by the judge. As many posted bails tend to reach at least $1000, a minimum $100 bail posting is expected. This amount could vary state to state. Some states require 10% for state but 15% for federal bail amounts, while others have a flat 15% rate for all bail amounts.
Because nobody plans a trip to jail, the idea of bail could cause some serious financial strain, and often the money needed for bail is not available. Bonding agents are aware of this, so some provide payment plans or other options for co-signers or collateral to cover costs. A co-signer would step in to take responsibility for the court appearance and the bail repayment if the defendant defaults. Collateral would be forfeited to the bond agent to secure a detainee’s bail. Collateral is often posted in the forms of cash, real estate, car titles or a combination of other assets of value.
If you did not post any bail, this will lead to jail time until your case and hearing are completed. Plus this whole process takes months and in some cases, it may be even more. So it should be a wise idea to hire a professional bail bondsman
