If you or a loved one has been imprisoned for a non-capital offense, you have the right to post bail and be released before your court date. However, bail often requires a large sum of money, and most people do not have such an amount readily available. A common way people deal with this dilemma is to acquire a commercial bond.
A commercial bond is obtained through a bondsman. While this type of bond is often the most expensive, it is also the most common because it is available without the need of cash or property.
Paying Bail Using a Commercial Bond
The bondsman will secure an insurance contract and post your total bail amount. The bondsman will charge 12% of the bail amount to be paid up front, and this payment will not be returned to you after your court hearing.
