Bail Bonds, Liability and Co-Signers

Bail bonds are a tricky business. Most people don’t know how they work, how to get one, or even how much they cost. Learn about one important component of bail bonds: Co-signing. By the end of this article, you should know everything you need to know about setting up and becoming liable for a bail bond.

What is co-signing?

A co-signer, or indemnitor, has a number of responsibilities. To begin with, these are the people who contact a bail agency. They coordinate the bond to make sure a defendant gets out of jail. When you do this, you will have to do a number of things.

First, you are responsible for paying the premium on a bail bond. Typically, a premium is a payment that equals 10 percent of the bond amount. This can be looked at like a service charge, or down payment, that is nonrefundable.

It is important to note that bail bonds last a full year. If a hearing extends beyond a year, the co-signer has the choice to pay another premium equal to the first or not pay the premium, meaning the defendant will have to find another indemnitor or go back to jail.

Do you have questions about Santa Barbara bail bonds? Below, our bail bond agents answer the most commonly asked questions about the process.

What is a bail bond?

Think of a bail bond as a contract. It’s a type of financial agreement, or arrangement, between a defendant and the court.

  • The court lets defendants leave custody in exchange for posting bail. They must agree to return for scheduled court hearings.
  • Bail bonds are co-signed by bail bond companies. They guarantee to pay bail and they charge the defendant a fee for the service.
