The purpose of a Bail Bond is to guarantee to the court that the person being released on the bail bond will make all of their required court appearances. It is a financial guarantee to the court that the defendant will appear on each and every court appearance. Failure of the defendant to comply with the court appearances could result in warrants being issued and the bail bonds being forfeited.

As Indemnitor, you are financially responsible for the bail bond. As long as the person you bail out makes all of their court appearances, you will not have to pay any money in addition to the premium. If the person is simply late to court or has a valid reason for not being there, we can usually get them back into court without additional expense to you. If the person skips bail and we are not able to return that person to court, you will be required to pay the full amount of the bail. If we are able to return them to court, you will be required to reimburse us for actual expenses incurred. Collateral is money, property, etc., that you deposit with the bail bond company. The collateral is held until the bond is exonerated and the premium has been paid in full.
In the majority of situations, we do not require collateral.
Factors that may determine if collateral will be required:

  1. Accused person’s past arrest history
  2. Whether or not accused person is local
  3. Accused person’s past bond history
An Indemnitor or Cosigner is a person who agrees to be financially responsible for the full amount of the bail bond in the event the defendant fails to make a court appearance and cannot be returned to court. An Indemnitor is responsible for paying any costs incurred as a result of the defendant missing a court date. If there is more than one Indemnitor on a bail bond, they are jointly and severally liable. This means the money could be collected from one or both of them.
