What is the purpose of a Bail Bond (surety bond)?
The purpose of a bail bond is to guarantee to the court that the person being released on the bail bond will make all of their required court appearances. It is a financial guarantee to the court that the defendant will appear in each and every court appearance. Failure of the defendant to comply with the court appearances could result in warrants being issued and the bail bonds being forfeited.
Do I get my premium back when I take care of all my court dates?
No. This is a non-refundable service fee the bail bonding company charges to get you out of jail.
Can you refer me to an attorney?
No. We as bail bondsmen cannot refer attorneys. You will want to check the local phonebook or call the Lawyer Referral Service at (512) 472-8303.
What is collateral?
Collateral is money, property, etc., that you deposit with the bail bond company. The collateral is held until the bond is exonerated and the premium has been paid in full.
What is an indemnitor or cosigner?
An indemnitor or cosigner is a person who agrees to be financially responsible for the full amount of the bail bond in the event the defendant fails to make a court appearance and cannot be returned to court. An indemnitor is responsible for paying any costs incurred as a result of the defendant missing a court date. If there is more than one Indemnitor on a bail bond, they are jointly and severally liable. This means the money could be collected from one or both of them.
How long does it take to get out of jail?
The paperwork in our office usually takes less than 10-15 minutes. The release time after the jail receives our bond is generally 2-4 hours from Travis County (Bastrop and San Patricio County - 30 minutes or less) depending how busy the jail is.
Are payment plans available?
Yes, payment plans are available. Please call for information.
