What Are Bail Bonds?
You’ve heard the term a lot, probably, on TV or in the movies. A person accused of a crime may be granted bail, and which means they can pay a certain amount and then go free until their trial. But what are bail bonds, and how do they work?
Bail is money you deposit with the court in return for a conditional release. The condition is that you return and present yourself at a later date for trial. If you do return, the bail money is then returned to you. Often times, however, the amount for bail is set higher than most people can pay. When that happens, they can take out a bail bond.
With a bail bond, you only pay a portion of your total bail, usually around 15%. The rest is lent to you by the bail bondsman, who pays the remainder of the bail himself. When you return for your court date, the bondsman collects the bail, including the 15% you paid as profit.
