What is a Bail Bond?
When a person is arrested for a non-capital crime, the court will usually set a specific amount of money to be paid to bail that person out of jail before their court date. If they do not have enough money to cover the bail amount, they often seek the assistance of a trusted bond company, such as Alliance Bail Bonds.
Typically, a bail bondsman will charge around 10% of the court-set bail amount for their services. Obtaining a bail bond does not affect your credit, and any agreed upon collateral will be returned after all court proceedings – as long as the arrested party shows up for all of their scheduled court dates, and pays court fees that develop in the process.
What is Bail Bond Collateral?
Bail bond collateral is required when the defendant, or the person securing the bail bond for the defendant, cannot pay the full bail amount after contacting a bondsman. Collateral for a bail bond can be considered as a form of credit to make certain that the person you are posting bail for shows up to their court dates. Collateral can take the form of personal property, vehicles, or jewelry.
If the arrested party does not show up for their court date, the collateral will be seized to pay the bail debt that is owed to the court or the bail company. As long as all court dates are met and all court fees are paid, then collateral will be returned in full.
