How Bail Bonds Work
A bail bond, known as a “surety bond,” is a contractual agreement by a bondsman licensed by the state who is backed by an insurance company. The bail bondsman is guaranteeing the court payment of the full bail amount if the defendant fails to appear in court for their scheduled hearings. The co-signer of the bond (the defendant, friend or relative) is guaranteeing the bond agent that, if the defendant fails to appear in court, they will pay the entire bail amount.
A bail bond will have to be approved by the agent. The agent will need to collect as much information about the defendant as possible. After the bond is approved, a fee, called a premium, must be paid to the bondsman. This amount is equal to 10 percent of the bail amount. For example, if bail is $10,000, the bail bond premium is $1,000.
Before agreeing to post bail for someone, it is very important that you understand your liability. If you have any reason to believe that the defendant will avoid returning to court for all hearings, you should not consider co-signing a bail bond for them. You will be held financially liable for all of the court costs and fees, costs incurred by the bondsman for trying to bring the defendant into custody, as well as the full bail amount.
That said, problems with bail are very, very rare. The defendant simply needs to show up in court.
