For this service, the defendant is charged a percentage of the
bail amount. Before being released the defendant or a relative or
friend of the defendant, typically contacts a bail agent to arrange
for the posting of bail. Prior to the posting of a bail bond, the
defendant or a co-signer must guarantee that they will pay the
full amount of bail if the defendant does not appear in court.
Typically, a family member or a close friend of the defendant
will post bail and cosign. Collateral is not always required for a
person to be bailed from jail. Often a person can be bailed from
jail on the signature of a friend or family member. Cosigners
typically need to be working and either own or rent a home in
the same area for some time.
After an agreement is reached, the bail agent posts a bond for the amount of the bail, to guarantee the defendant’s return to court.
If the defendant "skips", the cosigner is immediately responsible for the full amount of the bail. If the defendant is located and arrested by the bail agent the cosigner is responsible for all expenses the bail agent incurs while looking for the defendant.
