Information is Your Friend
Like most things in life, the more information you have in relation to the world of bail bonds, the more likely it is that you will know what to do if you ever find yourself in a situation where you have to post bail. Below, we have listed a few more myths that you need to be aware of.
- Fees are Refunded: In most cases, it is extremely rare that a person will be able to have the fees associated with their bond refunded after their court date. Once a payment is made to a bondsman according to the set bond amount, the transaction is final in the vast majority of cases. This payment is a sort of insurance that the bondsman accepts in order to negate the risk that they take by agreeing with the court to put up the full amount of bail on our behalf. Without this fee, bondsmen would not be able to provide the services that they do.
- Bondsmen are Bounty Hunters: Thanks to a rather popular reality TV show, quite a few people have an incorrect view of bondsmen and assume, falsely, that all bondsmen are bounty hunters. While it is true that bondsmen will sometimes enlist the services of a bounty hunter in order to find a defendant who has skipped out on bail, in the majority of cases, it is simply cheaper for a bondsman to charge the person who put up collateral rather than employing the services of a bounty hunter.
