Common Questions

Here are some common questions in that will help you understand bail bonds better.

A bail bond is a price the defendant (or their loved ones or a bail bondsman) pays in exchange for the defendant’s freedom until their court date. By paying bail, the defendant is agreeing to make their necessary court appearances. If they do not, they can get into serious legal trouble.

Typically, bail bonds companies will charge you 10% of your bail amount as a fee. There are legal parameters for how much the bail bonds company can charge.

In addition to bail money, collateral can be offered in place of or in addition to the effort to release a defendant from jail.

Different bail bondsmen will offer different bail bond options. Some of the most common include:

  • Cash—The full bail amount paid in cash
  • Property—The defendant’s property like real estate or jewelry in exchange for bail
  • Personal recognizance—The defendant’s word they will appear in court when they are supposed to
  • Surety—The defendant’s bail paid for by a bail bondsman

Defendants are usually allowed a collect call, and typically that is the only way you or us can speak to a defendant. Most Jails have visiting hours.

Though restrictions cary, during booking a defendant can typically make multiples calls. We also accept collect calls and are always happy to set up a three way call and help expedite the process.

Filling out the necessary paperwork is usually brief, but the amount of time the whole process takes varies depending on location. In Colorado Springs, a defendant’s average release time after posting bail is 1-2 hours.

Only in certain cases if the charges are dismissed within 14 days. Otherwise the premium is non-refundable once the bond has been posted.

Not typically. If a Bond was posted, it means the Bondsman fulfilled his/her obligation. In rare cases before a defendant is released, it’s possible that another agency placed a hold on the defendant.
