Frequently Asked Question
WHAT IS BAIL?
What is the bail bond process?
How much does a bail bond cost?
"Bail" is a cash deposit or pledge to a court in order to persuade it to release a suspect from jail, with the understanding that the suspect will return for trial or forfeit the bail (and possibly be brought up on charges of the crime of failure to appear.)
After an inmate has been fully booked, a bail amount will be determined for his or her release. After the bail amount has been set you can call one of our professional bail bond agents to start the bail bond process and help your friend or loved one "post bail."
Most bail bond premiums are ten percent of the full bail amount. For example, if the full bail amount is $10,000, the premium (fee) for the bail bond is $1,000. These fees are established by the surety companies and regulated by the Department of Insurance.
How long is a bail bond good for?
Who is liable for the bail bond?
What is the premium?
It is good until there is a disposition in the care, meaning the case is over.
The indemnitor (co-signer) is financially liable for the bail bond. The indemnitor's liability is limited to the full face value of the bail bond.
In Virginia, the cost of the bail bond, which is called "the premium," is generally 10% of the total bail amount. You do not get this money back. The premium is fully earned upon the release of the accused.
