How Bail Bonds Work
A Bail Bond enables you to have a friend
or relative d from jail without requiring you to personally post the
entire bond amount. A Bail Bond Agency will typically collect a specific
percentage of the total bail amount (as prescribed by law) from you and
guarantees the Court that the defendant will appear to all hearings as
Bond Premiums: bail agencies typically collect 10% of the face amount of
the bail from you. This is called

Consumer Tips on Bail Bonds
Consultation Call 1.800.224.5937.
Deal ONLY with a licensed bail agent. Ask to see the bail agent's license
and identification prior to any bail transaction.
The bail agent should charge you only the legal rates. Additional charges
should be itemized and explained to your satisfaction.
Ask for an itemized receipt for all charges. You should receive a company
numbered receipt, stating the amount you paid, the total amount being
charged, on who's behalf (defendant name), the address of the Surety
Company and their direct telephone #.
Ask for copies of all signed contracts and agreements.
If financing is provided, take time to read and understand the terms the
agreement prior to signing.
You are not only paying for the bond, but you are also paying for service.
The bail agent should be available for questions or concerns after the
bail bond has been posted.
If you have a doubt "DON'T SIGN ANYTHING" consult with an attorney first.
