How to Post Bail

If you or a loved one has been arrested, then a judge will determine how much your bail will be. But once that is done, how do you post bail? This video from explains.

The cheapest and quickest way to post bail is to pay the court in cash. This money will be returned to you when the case is over. But if you don’t have the cash, then you need to contact a company that supplies bail bonds. Many will charge you 10% of the bail amount, but they will then pay the full bail amount to the court. However, the 10% fee is a payment, so you won’t always get it back.

Some bondsmen may require some collateral or require a friend to co-sign a bail contract. But as long as you show up in court when you are required to, the property will be returned to you.

Here at Bail Hotline, we’ll work closely with you to come up with the payment plan that suits you. Collateral is not always required, and you may be eligible for a lower premium. Contact us today for more information.  (888) GET-BAIL
