Bail bonds exist to get you out of jail while you wait for your court date. The bail amount is based on the seriousness of the charges, your record, and the probability of you showing up for the court date. At 2nd Chance, we will work with you to help you get through the legal process. We care about people and treat everyone like they are family.
Bail Bondsman charge a 10% fee of the total amount of the bail bond. So if you had a $10,000 bond, you would need to pay $1,000 to the bondsman. Bail money is non-refundable. If you are not able to pay with money, it’s possible the bondsman will accept collateral in the form of a title to a car or home, or jewelry or other items of value.
Co-signing for a bond means you are now responsible for the entire amount of the bail money if the person does not show up for court. So if the bail bond fee was $1000, that means the total bailout was $10,000, and you will be responsible for owing that full $10,000 should the defendant turn into a fugitive and avoid going to his or her court date.
If you violate bail conditions in any way, e.g. fail to show up in court, commit another crime and get arrested again, your bail will be revoked and you will most likely be taken into custody after a bounty hunter finds you, you can see what bounty hunters are legally allowed to do here. After bail is revoked, you will forfeit the money paid
