How Do Bail & Bonds Work?

The bail bond system gives people the opportunity to get out of jail and maintain their freedom until their trial date. Although each state has its own unique bail bond options, the essential principles are usually the same in every bail bond system.

Below, we explain how bail bonds work.

  • Bail is money that is deposited to a court to release a defendant from jail. Bail is based on the understanding that the defendant will be present for their court date. “Bail bond” refers to the promise made by the defendant, or someone who promises to pay on their behalf, to forfeit the bail money if they do not return to court. The person paying bail on behalf of the defendant is known as a “surety.”
  • Bail amounts have to be set at a high enough amount that will deter the defendant from forfeiting their bond and disappearing. Most courts have preset bail amounts for specific offenses. However, a judge can choose a different bail amount as they see fit. Judges can also deny the defendant bail if they feel the person is a potential flight risk. When a defendant has family, employment, and minimal criminal history, they are less likely to be deemed a flight risk.
  • Courts will issue an arrest warrant if a defendant does not make their court date. The courts will also schedule a forfeiture hearing where the defendant will have a chance to provide a reason for missing their court date. However, courts will keep the bond amount if the defendant does not have a valid excuse, or fails to appear at the hearing.
