A bail bond is a three-party contract between the Courts, the Bondsman, and the Indemnitor. It is the Bondsman who guarantees to the Court that the accused - when released on bail - will be present for each and every court appearance in the future. In turn, the Indemnitor guarantees to the Bondsman that he or she will make sure that the Defendant goes to Court when required. For this "Bond Contract", the Bondsman charges a percentage of the total bond.
In Florida State Court the premium is10% of the bond value.
No. The bail bond fee is fully earned once the bond is posted for the defendant and he or she is released or transported to another facility, as per Florida Law.
Collateral is anything of value that is provided to the bail agent as security for the bond.
Collateral can be your property, land, or cash. In some instances, bank CDs, stocks, and bonds may be utilized.
The collateral is returned once the bail agent receives a Bond Discharge from the court. A "Bond Discharge" is the document that officially releases the bail agent from any further responsibility on the bond. It usually takes 7-21 days for the bail agent to get the discharge once the case is over.
County jails usually release the defendant with 2-8 hours of the bond being posted. In some instances, due to volume, it can take as long as 12-24 hours.
All courts notify the defendant by mail of their court dates. As a courtesy, most jurisdictions also notify the bail agent of the court dates too. This is done either by mail or by phone. However, it is your responsibility to make sure the defendant knows about the court date, and appears.
