What is Collateral?
In many situations, we will not require collateral. Collateral is money, property,
etc. that you deposit with the bail bond company. The collateral is held until the
case is completed.
As Indemnitor, you are financially responsible for the bail bond. As long as the
person you bail out makes all of their court appearances, you will not have to pay
any money in addition to the premium. If the person skips bail and we are not
able to return that person to court, you will be required to pay the full amount of
the bail. If we are able to return them to court, you will be required to reimburse
us for actual expenses incurred.
Other factors may determine if collateral will be required:
1. Accused person's past arrest history
2. Whether or not accused person is local
3. If Indemnitor is employed
4. How Indemnitor is related to the accused
5. How long Indemnitor and accused have they known each other
What is an Indemnitor or Cosigner?
An Indemnitor or Cosigner is a person who agrees to be financially responsible
for the full amount of the bail bond in the event the defendant fails to make a
court appearance and cannot be returned to court. An Indemnitor is responsible
for paying any bail bond costs incurred as a result of the defendant missing a
court date. If there is more than one Indemnitor on a bail bond, they are jointly
and severally liable. This means the money could be collected from one
or both of them.
Each bail bond has different circumstances. Our Agents are available 24 hours a day,
