What is the Bail Process?

Once someone is arrested on a criminal charge, they may be held for trial unless they furnish the required bail, often in the form of a bail bond. When a bail bond is issued, the person released promises to appear in court at the designated time and place.

If the person released on a bail bond fails to appear in court on their designated appearance date, the bond becomes payable and is forfeited as a penalty. For this reason, a bond usually requires some type of collateral such as cash, title to real property or other types of security.

It is important to note that only a person holding a bail license may solicit the negotiation of a bail bond.
