STANDARD BAIL CONTRACTS
When you decide you are going to bond a defendant out of jail using a Bail Bond Company you generally sign two contracts. By signing for a defendant you guarantee to the Bail Bond Company you will have the defendant appear at each court appearance.
Most cases require several court appearance before the case is resolved and you will be responsible for all court appearances. Our office will notify you of each court date via phone prior to that date. We also suggest you keep up with the case(s) by calling us periodically and checking for any new court information.
Should the defendant fail to appear in court, you will need to get the defendant back to court ASAP or risk paying back the entire bond amount (total liability) to our bail bond company.
The two contracts you will sign are 1) Indemnity Agreement and 2) Promissory Note.
To hold harmless. You will assure the Bail Bond Company that you will hold us harmless against any loss/cost on this bond if the defendant fails to appear. Usually there is no cost to get the defendant back to court as long as the defendant is willing to get back to court immediately.
