Understanding Bail Bonds And what you need to know
The first step in finding a trustworthy bail bondsman is understanding how bail works.
While some people have to remain in jail until their court date, others are released on bail. Bail is a payment—usually either in cash or property—that allows the accused to be released until his or her trial date. During the defendant’s arraignment, factors such as the type of crime committed and the criminal history of the defendant are a factor in determining the bail amount.
When bail is paid, the accused agrees to appear in court at the correct date and time. As long as the accused honors their agreement, most of the bail money will be returned. However, if the defendant fails to appear on the designated court date, the courts will keep the money.

Not everybody can afford to pay their bail.
While family members or friends may be able to pay bail in some cases, this isn’t an option for everyone. That’s why there are bail bondsmen. A bail bondsman can cover the bail when you, your family, or your friends can’t. Usually, bail bondsmen charge a 10% fee for their services. The defendant and/or family members will pay the bail bondsman back according to an agreed-to payment plan.
When bail is paid, the defendant (the person being released on bail) agrees to appear for his or her court date. As long as the defendant fulfills this obligation, there won’t be any issues. However, if the defendant fails to appear in court, there are serious consequences. The bail bondsman is allowed to track down the defendant and sue them for the bail money. Also, the police may search for the defendant who may get additional charges and fees.

HOW BAIL BONDS WORK IN BENT COUNTY
A defendant must be fully booked and fingerprints must be cleared, which can take several hours, before a bond can be accepted. Typically a bond will take approximately 3-6 hours. As most bonds need to be submitted before 9:00 pm, we advise posting the bond as early as possible to allow enough time for the whole process.

Some Types Of Bonds We Service:
Criminal Bail Bonds
Though uncommon, an office can acquire an arrest warrant if they supply information about the accused that establishes probable cause.
Felony Bail Bonds
In the US, the contrast between felony and misdemeanor has to do with the duration of punishment. A crime that is penalized by more than one year is a felony; less than one year is a misdemeanor.
Traffic Bail Bonds
Courts can issue warrants for unpaid traffic citations; these are the most common type of arrest warrant. If you forget about your tickets you could find yourself behind bars.
Domestic Violence Bail Bonds
Domestic violence can mean any offense perpetrated as a way to pressure, control, menace, punish, or get revenge. A roommate breaking something you own as an act of retribution can be domestic violence.
Domestic Violence Bail Bonds
