Overview of Raleigh bail bond process
When an individual is arrested by law enforcement, they will be taken to the local police or county sheriff’s department for booking.
The amount of the bail bond is determined by the criminal court judge. Most often, the defendant will be able to post bail immediately.
Posting a bail bond involves a contractual undertaking guaranteed by the bail bonding agency, defendant and the co-signer. The bail bond is a financial guarantee to the court that the defendant will appear in court each and every time the court orders.
For the above service, a bail bonds agent will charge a certain amount as a premium (typically 15% of the full bail amount).
After an agreement is reached between the bail bonds agent and the co-signer (family or friends) and all fees are paid, the bail bond agent physically posts a bail bond for the full bond amount with the court.
After all the formalities are completed, the defendant is released on bail and given a date and location to appear in court.
A summary judgment is made if a defendant fails to appear in court and also fails to seek reinstatement before the deadline for doing so passes. Once a summary judgment is issued by the courts, the full bail amount becomes due.
If a defendant fails to appear in court, also called a “forfeiture”, a warrant will be issued for the person’s arrest. To clear the warrant, the defendant must reschedule their court date. If future court appearances are met, the bond will be exonerated
This is a process by which a defendant who has failed to appear in court can have their bench warrant removed and the bail bond re-activated or “reinstated” with the court.The defendant, working withLee county bail bonds, will report back to the court, which allows the court to set a new court date for the defendant. This proceeding may result in additional fees to the defendant/co-signer.
The premium is the money earned by the bail bonding agency, at the time the defendant is released from custody, therefore it is not subject to return. This is the case even if the defendant is found innocent, the case is dismissed or the defendant is placed back into custody for another offense.
The defendant and any co-signer(s) are responsible to the bail bonding agency, for the premium and any fees or additional expenses incurred by the bail bonding agency on their behalf.
A cosigner is an individual who promises to pay the bail bond company, in situations when the person they post bail for does not appear in court. In few cases its ok, if a person fails to appear in the court, as long as they go back to the court. However if the person does not appear and is evading the court dates then the cosigner is contacted to help find the person or asked to pay the full amount of the bond.
