FAQ’s (Frequently Asked Questions)

Can I get my bail money back?
Yes. Normally, you can get your bail money back whether or not you have been convicted or acquitted. However, this only applies if you give the court the entire bail amount and did not use a bail bond. If you did use a bail bond, then the 10 percent premium that you paid is for the cost of the surety bond and the service’s prvided.

Why should I get a bail bond if I have the money readily available?
Deciding to use the cash to pay for the total bail amount may be a good choice for you. This depends entirely on your circumstance. Depending on the severity of the alleged crime, the bail amount may be set higher than expected, and paying for the entire bail out of pocket may be an unnecessary burden.

Do I have to use a bail bondsman?
No, you can post 100 percent cash bond with the court or you can call an attorney to help you post a property bond. A property bond generally requires a property appraisal.

What is a Bail Recovery Agent?
A bail recovery agent is a bounty hunter. If the accused party does not show up to court, sometimes a bail bondsman will hire a Bail Recovery Agent to locate and return the accused person to court.
