A-1 Bail Bonds

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a bail bond?

A bail bond is a contract to secure the release of a defendant. The bail agent (and their insurance company) guarantee that the defendant will appear in court, providing the bond amount as collateral. If the defendant does not appear in court, the bail agent and their insurance company must pay the full amount of their bond. If this happens, the individual who signed for the bail bond (not the defendant) is liable for all of the costs.
