What is a bail agency?
Depending on the type of crime, the court may choose to set a high bail and quite often a person doesn’t have the money to pay his or her bail. A bail agency acts on behalf of the defendant. The agency is paid a fee, usually 10% of the bail amount (15% for federal cases), and in return, the bond company makes an agreement with the court that the defendant will be present at any court appearances or he or she will forfeit the rest of the bail amount. It’s sort of like buying an insurance policy with the court that insures that the defendant will show up on his court date, and it’s a way to make it more affordable for your loved one to get out of jail. Sometimes collateral is required, but usually a Promissory Note and Indemnity Agreement are all that is required for collateral.
I’ve bailed out my loved one. Now what?
Now, you make sure he shows up at his court appearance. Failing to do so means a forfeiture of the collateral. But we care about our clients and our Hudson staff remind you of the upcoming court date to help make sure he doesn’t miss it.
