Answering Common Questions Regarding Bail Bonds
Which should I do? A DWI unconditional bail bond or pay for the alcohol monitor?
This is a very simple choice, post a DWI unconditional bail bond! Do not be suckered into the SCRAM monitor just to be told by the probation office that you will be released quickly! This is simply inaccurate, alcohol monitors are more expensive and invasive. Period. Furthermore, many jails also do not tell you that probation needs to meet with you to get you the monitor!
Additionally, many jails simply do not like to tell you that you will be hit with a required payment due at the time of receiving the alcohol monitor. If you already signed the papers and can't access your money and pay for the monitor, Guess what? Welcome to another night in the dirty icky county jail.

Common reasons why our clients post a DWI unconditional bail bond.
-The defendant had the option of posting a DWI unconditional bail bond instead of electing to go on the expensive and invasive alcohol monitor.
-The alcohol monitor cost was 100-300 dollars just to set up before they could get released.
-The client realized how expensive and invasive the alcohol monitor truly was over time. Our client posted unconditional bail after only a few weeks on the alcohol monitor.
-The individual did not want to sit in jail on the weekend, waiting for the next business day (Monday) for probation to get the alcohol monitor set up.
-Individuals didn't realize the ridiculous cost of an alcohol monitor over time vs. DWI unconditional bail bond.
-The client learned they could post a DWI Unconditional Bail Bond at any time after the release and could get off the alcohol monitor.
As a cosigner, you are responsible for the principal bond amount posted for the defendant. If the defendant fails to appear in court, the bail bond is forfeited by the county court. There will be a warrant issued for the defendant and an official notice will be sent by the county court notifying the bond company that the bond has been forfeited.
A cosigner is responsible for the full amount of the bail bond, only if the defendant is not returned to custody within a required time frame set by courts to the bond company. If the defendant does not clear the warrant on the bail bond forfeiture within the time frame set forth by courts to the bail bond company.
You as a cosigner are civilly responsible for any fee related to a forfeited bail bond. The terms are outlined in the documentation you signed at the time of the bail bond. Most bail bond companies follow par with a pretty universal bail bond application and cosigner agreement. Some of the fees cosigners and defendants are responsible for may include: bounty hunter fees, extradition fees, unpaid premium, collection fees, court fees, and attorney fees.
Bail bondsmen, often called bail agents, act as sureties and post bail bonds on the behalf of defendants. A bail bondsman or bail agent makes a profit by charging the defendant a non-refundable fee of 10% of the bail bond amount. If the defendant fails to appear in court, the bail bond becomes forfeited for the executed principle bond amount.
The bail bond business is a very serious business, it is the insurance business.

A bail bond (or bond) is an agreement between a defendant and a bail bond company guaranteeing the defendant's appearance for all court dates. A bail bond remains executed until the defendant is sentenced or the bail bond is discharged.
A cash bail (or cash bond) is an agreement between a defendant and the county jurisdiction where the cash bail was set by a judicial judge. A cash bail does not require a bail bondsman and effectively excludes the use of a bail bondsman. Cash bail is required to be paid in full to the jail, you do not pay a percentage of 10% of the bail set as you do by utilizing a bail bondsman.
Most individuals would rather pay a bail bonds company 10% of the set bond amount instead of paying a cash bail to the jail. Individuals choose to use a bondsman to save money initially by not paying a full face value of cash bail. The commercial bail bond system exists only in the United States and the Philippines, many states are a cash bail only bail system.
When you utilize bail bonds service, you pay the bail bondsman 10% of the principle bail amount.
