How a Bail Bond Works

After someone is arrested, they are booked into jail, and then taken to court. When in court, the judge will set a bail amount based on a number of factors, including the accused’s criminal history, and the severity of the charges against them. After bail has been determined, you can obtain a bail bond.

In exchange for a non-refundable fee called a premium, a bail bondsman will pay the full amount of bail on your behalf. The premium is usually around 10 percent of the total bail amount, which is much easier for people to pay. As long as the accused shows up to their court date on time, the person who took out the bail bond will not owe any more money.
