What is the bail bond process?

After an inmate has been fully booked, a bail amount will be determined for his or her release. After the bail amount has been set you can call one of our professional bail bond agents to start the bail bond process and help your friend or loved one "post bail."

How much does a bail bond cost?

Most bail bond premiums are ten percent of the full bail amount. For example, if the full bail amount is $10,000, the premium (fee) for the bail bond is $1,000. These fees are established by the surety companies and regulated by the Department of Insurance.

How long is a bail bond good for?

It is good until there is a disposition in the care, meaning the case is over.

Who is liable for the bail bond?

The indemnitor (co-signer) is financially liable for the bail bond. The indemnitor's liability is limited to the full face value of the bail bond.

What is the premium?

In Virginia, the cost of the bail bond, which is called "the premium," is generally 10% of the total bail amount. You do not get this money back. The premium is fully earned upon the release of the accused.

What is an indemnitor or co-signer?

An indemnitor or co-signer is a person who agrees to be financially responsible for the full amount of the bail bond in the event that the defendant fails to make a court appearance and cannot return to court.

What is collateral?

Collateral is money, property, etc. that you deposit with the bail bond company. Collateral is help until the bond is exonerated and the premium has been paid in full. In many situations, the bail bonds company will not require collateral.

Is the bail bond premium refundable?

Once the bail bond is posted and accepted by a court or jail, liability is taken on the bail bond. At that point the bail bond premium is fully earned and is non refundable.
