CLAREMONT BAIL BONDS FAQs >>
What is a bail bond?
A bail bond which is also called a surety bond is a contract that is created by a licensed bail bondsman who should be backed up by an insurance company. The purpose of this contract is to guarantee that the bail agent will post the full bail amount and takes full responsibility for the money if the inmate does not show up to his or her court date.
What happens when someone is arrested?
When someone is arrested, they will be taken to the closest jail. Once they arrive at the jail, the jailer will make the inmate complete the booking process before they are ready to be bailed out of jail. Once the booking process is complete, the jailer will then clear the inmate for bail, at which point we could post the bail for the defendant and he or she will then be released to your custody.
How is the bail amount set?
Too many factors that go into deciding how much the bail amount is. It depends on the different charges that the inmate is charged with. The severity of the charges and the potential danger that the inmate brings to society will determine the bail amount. The bail amount reflects how much money it would be necessary to prevent the inmate from committing the same crime again.
How can I pay for a bail bond?

when can I expect to get the collateral back?
If you have to use collateral to complete the bail bond process, you will receive the collateral back once the case is finished. If the inmate fails to appear to court, the bail bond agency has the right to use the collateral to pay off the full bail amount.
What happens if I fail to show up to court?
If for any reason you fail to show up to court, you must contact the bail bonds agency that posted the bail bond immediately.
