What is a Bail Bond?

A bail bond guarantees that the accused will appear before the court. The court can issue a warrant for the accused's arrest and retain the bail money if they do not appear.

Insurance companies usually issue bail bonds and they are subject to state regulation. Only licensed bail bond agents are allowed to post bail in North Carolina.

What Does a Bail Bond Do?

A person is typically arrested and taken to a local jail. They will then be held there until their arraignment hearing. The judge will determine the bail amount at the arraignment.

A bail bond agent can post bail for defendants who cannot afford the full bail amount. A non-refundable fee will be charged by the agent, usually around 10% of the bail amount.

The agent will then file a bond with court. This ensures that the bail amount is paid in full if the defendant fails to appear on their court date.

Difference between Bail and Bail Bond

Important to understand that bail bond and bail bail are different things. Bail refers to the money that the judge sets at an arraignment hearing.

Bail bond is an agreement between the defendant, bail agent and the court. A bail agent places a bond for the defendant on their behalf. This ensures that the bail amount is paid in full if the defendant fails to appear at their court date.

Most people will use a bail agent to post bail. However, some people might prefer to pay cash directly at the court. They will receive their money back if they attend all court appearances.

Why you should use a Bail Bond Agent

You should choose to use a bail bonds agent over paying cash to the court for a few reasons. It is easier to obtain bail money from a bail agent than to raise the full bail amount yourself.

You will also forfeit your bail amount if you miss your court appearance. You will only owe a small portion of the bail amount if you use a bail bonds agent.

A bail bond agent will help you get out faster because they have the money to post bail.

What happens if I cannot afford a bail bond
