FAQ for Bail Bonds
What are the responsibilities of someone who is out on bond?
If a person has been released on bond, they must agree to the conditions of the court. This means regular check ins with their bail bondsman, the completion of any classes, reporting changes of address or employment to both the court and the bail bonds agency and appearing at all scheduled court hearings.
What happens if the defendant misses their court date?
Accidents can happen. If a defendant accidentally misses their court date and immediately contacts the court, the judge will more than likely set a new date. If the defendant skips bail, does not show up for court and does not contact the bail bonds agency, a warrant will be issued for their arrest and their bond may be forfeited.
What is collateral and can it be used for a bail bond?
Collateral is any real property that can be used to secure a bail bond. Cash, jewelry, vehicles, real estate, certificates of deposits and stocks or bonds are considered to be real property that can be liquidated if the bond is forfeited. In order for real property to be used as collateral, its value must be one and a half times the total amount of the bail. The means to cover a $10,000 bond, $15,000 in real property would have to be put up as collateral.
When does the co-signer get their money back?
The co-signer will get their money back once the court case has closed. They will get the amount posted, minus any fees, restitution and court costs. It is important to remember that the original 10% fee that is mandated by the state is non-refundable and is the bail bonds agency's compensation for posting the bail. If collateral is used to secure the bond, the co-signer will get it back as soon as the case is over. This can take anywhere from a couple of weeks to two months, depending on how backed up the court system is.
What happens when a defendant skips out on their bail?
When a defendant refuses to appear in court, the Murrieta bail bond agency will be notified of the situation. The judge will give them a set amount of time to find the defendant and return them to custody. If this isn't done in a timely fashion, the court will forfeit the bond and the co-signer will become immediately responsible for paying the entire amount to the court. If collateral was used, it will be liquidated, the bail paid off and any additional funds that are left over will be returned to the co-signer.
Can a person post bail before they are arrested?
If a person knows there is a warrant out for their arrest, they can contact the bail bonds agency, complete the application and have the bail bondsman go with them when they surrender to the police. As the defendant is being booked and processed, the bail bondsman can be completing the paperwork to start the release process. In this situation, the defendant may be out of jail in as little as six to eight hours, depending on how busy the jail is.
