FAQ about Bail
Once an individual is arrested for a crime, they are brought to a local law enforcement agency to be booked, a process which lasts 1-2 hours. They are then brought to jail when they are given a court date to settle their charges. However, they can also opt to be released from jail by posting bail, among other release options.
What is bail?
Bail is some sort of security, usually a large sum of money, given to the court for the release of a person which guarantees the person’s appearance in all of his required court appearances.
What are the types of bail?
There are two types of bail: cash bail and bail bonds.
What is cash bail?
Cash bail, as the name suggests, require a certain amount of money to be paid to the court for the release of an arrested person. Cash bail is usually set by the court at a high price that not everyone can afford, thus they opt for a bail bond.
What is bail bond?

What is collateral?
Collateral is usually given to your bail bonds agent, as payment to guarantee the appearance of the defendant, although not necessary. At the instance the defendant fails to appear, the collateral posted will be used to pay the rest of the cash bail.
What are good and bad collateral?
Items like cars and boats are considered good collateral, but they are normally valued at their current resale value, not what you originally paid for them. Items that you are currently paying for, like a house or a car, are considered bad collateral, and must be avoided.
