How to post a Bail

Bailing can range from $20,000 lowest for the least serious offenses, up to $5,000,000 dollars for the most serious cases and offenses. The options you have to pay the bail is through a direct cash bail, a bail bond, and a property bond. A direct cash bail bond must be paid in full by cash, check, money order, or cashier check.  As seen bail can be large and stressful on money, so a direct cash bail bond may not always be an option. The most common option, is the bail bond.  You negotiate with a bondsmen or bail agent that will post your bail and you pay them back for a maximum of 10%. Example would be for $20,000 bail you pay them back $2,000. They may also charge collateral to make sure you don’t skip the court date as well. You and a cosigner will then take responsibility for the bond.

Failure to appear

The court will take your money, and the bondsmen will seek money from you, and then your cosigner. If you had a legitimate excuse then the court may exonerate the money.
