How Does Bail Work?
Bail is money that defendants are required to deposit to guarantee they will return to court for a trial if released from jail while their case is pending. The amount of bail is set on a bail hearing, which usually occurs within a short time after the arrest. For more serious charges and certain circumstances, however, the court doesn’t grant bail, and the defendant has to wait in jail until their trial date.
Once the bail is settled, the court holds onto the money until the end of the trial, at which point the bail will be returned. If the defendant fails to appear in court during their trial or gets arrested while out on bail, the court will forfeit the bail and keep it.
You can post bail for your loved one in jail in various ways. You can pay for the full amount in cash. Another way is to post property bail; instead of paying in cash, you put up some form of collateral such as a house, antique furniture, and other assets. If the defendant doesn’t show up in court or gets arrested while out on bail, the court will seize those assets and pass them to the state.
If you don’t have enough cash or assets to put up as collateral, you can turn to bail bonds. We’re here to help you get through the process of posting bail for your loved one through a bond.
How Do Bail Bonds Work?
We post bail in the form of bonds, like a surety bond. We don’t give anyone money to pay for the bail. Instead, we present a surety bond in the form of a Power of Attorney, a legal document that assures the court it will receive the bail amount in full if the defendant misses a court schedule or gets arrested while awaiting trial. We leave this legal document with the court and act as your loved one’s guarantor.
Please note, however, that bail bonds usually come with a non-refundable premium. This is a service fee charged by a bail bond agent or company. Amistad Bail Bonds’ premium is 15% of the full bail amount, in compliance with the limit set by North Carolina on bail bond premiums.
