A bonding company is comprised of professionals that are well educated in the process of posting bail bonds for people who have been arrested and detained until the amount of bail set by the court has been posted. They are also a company that is able to give accurate advice about the bail bond process and answer any questions a person might have about posting bail.
While some bail might be a small amount and can be posted in cash by the person who will be paying the bail amount to the courthouse, county jail or police station, there are some amounts of bail that can not be paid to these places because of the amount. These agencies are limited to the amount of cash bail they can take from a person, where the bail bond company that is licensed is able to secure bail for a person even when the amount is high.
One of the things the bond company is able to do in bail amounts that have been set that are high is to accept real property in place of part of the cash. While some cash will still need to put up for the posting of bail it will not be as large of an amount as what the full bail would be. To do this there must be real property put up as collateral in the form of items like savings or stock accounts, real estate, jewelry, a vehicle or other times of value. This is all returned when the court case comes to an end whether the person is convicted or not as long as they have appeared at each of the court proceedings. If the person out on bail does not the full amount of the bail can be forfeited by the court and a warrant placed for the person’s arrest. In an event such as this the person who has posted bail with the bail bond company will risk loosing not only their cash money but also the real property they have put up so that bail could be posted.
This is also a company that has information about each of the officials that take bail bond payments and for which police station or county jail they accept these funds, this is where the professional is able to form relationships with the clerks and other officials which benefits the person being bailed out of jail.
