What You Need To Know

 

  • PR Bond- The court takes your word for it that you will appear in court and you are not required to pay any money. This type of bond is rare.
  • Cash Bond- You are required to pay, but will get the money back if you appear in court. The money is forfeited if you fail to appear in court.
  • Surety Bond- This is the most common type of bond. A bondsman pledges to pay the bail amount if you do not appear in court; you pay a bail premium (usually a percentage of the total bail).
  • Most jails have a list of acceptable bondsmen or your lawyer will know bondsmen the court will accept.
  • Know exactly how much you will be paying the bondsman to prevent financial compliance issues that could land you back in jail.
  • A word of caution: In some states, failing to show up in court (“bail jumping”) means you forfeit your bond. Bail jumping is its own offense – added to the DUI ticketing.
