HOW DO BAIL BONDS WORK?
In the past, a bail bond was known as a surety bond. A friend or family member would contact a bail bonds agent on behalf of the defendant to secure a bond to obtain their release from jail. Basic information is gathered and from that point, the application is filled out and processed. Questions pertaining to their employment, the length of time at their current residence and prior criminal history are a small part of the information used to assess the defendant's risk.
Bail bond agents can begin the process in several ways. They can talk to the co-signer over the phone, by email, fax or in person. If you can't come to us, we can come to you.
Once the paperwork is completed, the agent will post the bond at the Marion county Jail and the release process will begin. A reputable agency can finish an application in less than an hour. Once the papers have been turned into the jail and the bond has been posted, the release process can take up to 4 hours.
The state mandated fee for a bail bond is 10 percent. Be on the lookout for agencies that offer a lower rate. It is illegal and they may only be looking to snag your cash.
In most cases, when a friend or family member bonds out a defendant, they will appear at their court hearing to protect the other party's investment. A bail bond agency also has a stake in whether or not the defendant appears. If by chance, the defendant misses their court date, the co-signer and bail bond agency are liable for the entire amount of the bail.
It is important for the co-signer to always remember what their responsibilities are. If you have co-signed a bond agreement, the bail bond agency will rely on you to keep tabs on the defendant.
