FAQ about Bail
An individual undergoes a booking process lasting for an hour or two in a local law enforcement in the city if they were arrested for a crime. They are given a date when they can settle their charges, and before then, they are brought to jail. They are given an option to be released from jail, too, commonly by posting bail.
What is bail?
Bail is specially designed as an incentive for the individual to appear in court on the assigned court dates.
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 bails are normally set at a high price, so most people opt for a bail bond.
What is bail bond?
Bail bonds, sometimes called surety bonds, are the cheaper option compared to cash bails. Bail bonds are usually handled by bail bonds agents, and their fees, commonly 10% of the cash bail, can vary depending on the case.
What is collateral?
Collateral is usually given to your bail bonds agent, as payment to guarantee the appearance of the defendant, although not necessary. The posted collateral will then be used to pay the remainder of the cash bail when the defendant fails to appear on court.
What are good and bad collateral?
Major collateral items like boats and cars are good collateral, but their value will be of the current time, not of what you bought them for. Items that you are currently paying for, like a house or a car, are considered bad collateral, and must be avoided.
