How a Downey Bail Bond Works

What is a Bail Bond

Surety bonds, commonly known as a bail bonds, are contracts between a state licensed bail agent and the signer or cosigners and guaranteeing that a defendant will appear for scheduled court appearances. In the event of failure to appear, sometimes called a “skip”, the signers of the bail bond contract agree to pay the court the full amount of the bond.

Completing the Process – Release from Jail

After the paperwork is finalized, a licensed agent will file, or “post”, the bond with the jail which will result in the release of the defendant. Again, jail facilities vary in the amount of time to process the bond and release the detainee. From start to finish, this bail agency will generally complete the paperwork and posting process in 1-2 hours. For this service, the customer is charged a bail bond fee (generally 10% of the full bail amount, which is mandated by state law).

If the Defendant is not Bailed Out

If the defendant is not bailed out or otherwise released, she or he will usually remain in custody until arraignment and potentially until the matter has been resolved in court. The benefit of being released on bail is that the defendant will have time obtain qualified legal services and present the case in a complete manner.
