Understanding Bail Bonds
A bail bond, also known as a surety bond, is defined as a “formal, legally enforceable contract between a first party (the principal or obligor), a second party (the customer or obligee), and a third party (the surety, such as a bank, bonding company, or insurance company) whereby the surety guarantees payment of a specified maximum sum, or to otherwise compensate (indemnify), the obligee against damage or loss caused by the actions (or a failure to perform) of the obligor)." Bail bonds guarantee that the defendant will appear in court every time that he or she is ordered to do so based on requests by the court.
If the defendant doesn’t attend court as requested, then the bond will be forfeited and the defendant will be issued an arrest warrant. The statutes for this vary from state to state, although in most cases the defendant will be subject to apprehension and arrest. The cost for bail bonds tend to vary from state to state and may be based on statutory rates or rates that have been filed by the insurance company that has underwritten the bond. Depending on the defendant’s criminal history (if any), collateral may be needed. A collateral receipt should be provided when the bond is written. The return of the collateral is based on statutes in most states; it should be held in trust for the party that is arranging the bail.
