When your loved one has been taken to jail, we know your primary concern is figuring out how to help them get out of jail. The process for getting a loved one released from jail is called bail. Bail is set at a hearing that takes place shortly after your loved one is placed in jail; it is the amount of money needed for your loved one to get out of jail.
What is Bail?
Bail is a loan given to the court ensuring that the defendant will return for court. When the defendant appears for his or her scheduled court date, the bail bondsman’s money is returned but the fee paid to the bondsman is not. If the defendant does not appear for his or her scheduled court date, the bail money is forfeited to the court and the cosigner becomes responsible for the full amount.
How do I make Bail?
For many people, making bail on their own is difficult as it can be in the thousands of dollars. That’s where a bail bondsman comes in. A bail bondsman can help you post the bond amount you need to help your loved one get out of jail. Typically, a 10% fee is charged for this service—and if your loved one appears at his or her scheduled court date, this is the only amount of money you are responsible to provide.
