People often have questions when it comes to securing a bail bond for themselves or a loved one. Here at Bill’s Bail Bonds, our friendly team wants to help you as much as possible, so we have answered some frequently asked questions below to help you.
What is a Bail Bond
To start off this FAQ section, we thought we would explain further the purpose of a bail bond to help you understand what it is and why it is needed. A bail bond is issued for someone who is in jail and wants to get out before their court date. If the defendant doesn’t show up for the selected court date, then the bail bond is forfeited.
How Much is a Bail Bond
The price of the bail bond is typically only 10% of the full bail amount. The bail amount is determined by the courts, and it usually depends on the crime that was allegedly committed.
Fortunately, bail bonds are valid until the case is closed or charges are dropped against the defendant. You do not have to worry about a bail bond expiring.
Hopefully, the answers to these questions will help you understand a little more about bail bonds and why they are essential to many families. Call us at (304) 296-5009 to secure a bail bond 24/7.
