Bail agents & their job
The job of a bail agent is varied and somewhat complex. The primary
responsibility of a bail agent is to coordinate release for the arrested
person until their court appearance. This permits the arrested individual to
assist more easily in their defense, to return to work, and to continue with
daily living. Upon the arrested person's release, the bail agent should
explain the full details of the bonding process. This explanation may be
required by the licensing agency.
The bail agent should also verify that the charged individual attends the
necessary court proceedings. If the arrested individual fails to appear, the
bond agent should help locate and return him or her for trial. The bond
agent should be present at court, when necessary, to provide information on
the bail bond. Bail bond agents should also be familiar with the laws and
holding procedures of any property provided for collateral and return said
property promptly when the bond is exonerated by court. A bail agent in your
area can provide additional details about what his or her job
responsibilities involve. To find a bail agent in your area call
Many defendants cannot raise the
entire amount of the bail. In some states, the court may release
defendants after they pay ten percent of the bail. In other states,
defendants may arrange for their release through a bail bondsman. In
that case, a defendant typically posts 10 percent of the total bail
and signs over a lien on certain belongings to a bail bondsman or
surety firm representative who guarantees to pay the remainder to the
court if the defendant fails to appear for trial.
