WHAT IS BAIL?
Bail is the allowance of an accused person to be temporarily released from custody. Bail is used as a means to prepare for a court date and in criminal cases requires a sum of money or property that needs to be posted on behalf of the defendant to guarantee their court appearances.
WHAT IS A BAIL BOND?
A bail bond is a monetary guarantee made by a defendant or on behalf of a defendant to guarantee their appearance in each of their court dates. Failure to appear at a court date can result in bail forfeiture.
WHAT IS THE BAIL PROCESS?
After an inmate is booked a bail amount will be set for his or her release. After the bail amount has been set you will be able to call one of our professional bail agents and begin the bail process to get yourself, your friend, or your loved one out of jail. Lucky Bail Bonds makes this bail process fast and discreet.
HOW MUCH WILL THE BAIL PROCESS COST ME?
A bail bond is the full amount of bail set by the court. The bail premium is the amount that the Lucky Bail Agent charges. Typically, this amount is 10% of the bail amount. For example, if the bail amount is set to $10,000 then the bail premium would be $1,000.
WHEN DOES FORFEITURE TAKE PLACE?
A forfeiture will occur if the defendant fails to appear in court. In many cases, if the defendant is willing to work with an Lucky Bail Agent then the bond can be “reinstated.” Reinstatement allows the court to set a new date for the trial that the defendant missed.
WHAT IS AN INDEMNITOR OR CO-SIGNER?
An indemnitor or co-signer is someone who is willing to be financially responsible for the full bail amount in the event that the defendant fails to make all their court appearances and cannot return to court. An indemnitor is responsible for any bail costs that are incurred as a result of the defendant missing court.
