5. How does the bail bond process work?

The judge or magistrate will set the amount of the bail due after the accused is arrested. A family member, friend, or defendant will contact us. You will pay the premium of the bail bond, 10%. If a family member or friend pays or uses collateral to pay the premium, they are considered the indemnitor or co-signer. An indemnitor is someone who co-signs on the bail bond and who agrees to indemnify the bail bond agent at a loss. In other words, they must pay the bail in full. So if the bail is set at 10,000.00, only 10% is usually owed, or 1000.00; however, if the defendant does not appear in court, the indemnitor owes 10,000.00.
