Ru1 Bail bonds FAQ
New Jersey – How does the process of Bail Bonds work?
The court requires money as a guarantee that the defendant doesn’t flee, after being released. A contract will be executed between the bail bond agent, courts and the (co- signer) person posting bail.
The responsibility rests with a bail agent to assure the courts of the defendants appearance. The bail bond agent receives non refundable 10 percent of the set bail. The bail is set by the judge. Bail amounts are varied depending on the defendants charge.
Although bail agents are guaranteeing the courts of the appearance of the defendant, the defendant will have a regular check in schedule with the agent. Agreements must be signed by all necessary parties before defendants release. If a defendant goes awol, and can’t be found, the co-signer is responsible for full amount of bail. When defendant is located bail agents fees are required a long with arrest.
