How Bail Bonds Work

If an individual does not have cash or property sufficient to cover the face amount of bail, they can use the services of a bail agent or “bondsman” through All-Pro Bail Bonds. The bail agent agrees to secure the release of the accused individual in return for a fee between 8-10% of the face amount of the bail.  Once the fee has been negotiated and the arrested individual or co-signor agrees to take responsibility for the face amount of the bail bond, the bail agent delivers the bond to the jail and the arrested individual is released from custody.If you have additional questions, please visit our Bail Bonds FAQ for more helpful information!Type your paragraph here.

How does Bail work?
  
This process involves a contractual undertaking presented to the court and guaranteed by a Bail Agent and the individual(s) paying for bail (Indemnitors). The Bail Bond Agency guarantees the court that the defendant will appear in court each and every time the Judge requires them to do so.

The Bail Bond Agency promises the court the defendant will appear as required or the Bail Bond Agency will pursue the fugitive absconder and bring him/her back to jail voluntarily or involuntarily without delay. The Indemnitor(s) are also financially responsible if the defendant should fail to appear in court. In turn, the Indemnitor(s) make a contractual deal with the Bail Bond Agency that they will assure the defendant complies with the bail regulations. This includes going to every court date on time, and they are responsible for advising or reminding the defendant to comply with dates, times and other requirements set forth by the court and the Bail Bond Agency.

If the defendant and/or the Indemnitor(s) on a particular Bail Bond fail to fulfill their obligations of the bond, it may result in serious financial ramifications if a court declares a forfeiture.
