How Bail Bonds Work

The Bail Bonds Process

If an individual does not have cash or property sufficient to cover the face amount of bail, they can use the services of a bail agent or “bondsman” through Peoples Bail Bonds. The bail agent agrees to secure the release of the accused individual in return for a fee between 8-10% of the face amount of the bail. The arrested individual is also required to provide a co-signor that will take responsibility for the face amount of bail.

Once the fee has been negotiated and a co-signor agrees to take responsibility for the bail bond, the bail agent delivers the bond to the jail and the arrested individual is released from custody.
