What Are Bail Bonds?
Bail bonds are a type of financial guarantee that allows someone who has been arrested and charged with a crime to be released from jail while they await their court date. When a person is granted bail, they can pay the full amount of the bail themselves or hire a bail bond agent who will pay the bail on their behalf. In exchange for this service, the person must pay a fee, usually a percentage of the total bail amount, and provide collateral, such as property or assets, to the bail bondsman. If the person fails to appear in court, the bond dealer may forfeit the collateral and take legal action to recover the remaining bail amount.
When an arrest occurs in Pennsylvania, the defendant in question is taken to a Magisterial District Judge (MDJ) to receive a bail amount and other specific information about their case. Once this bail amount is set, the defendant can wait in jail for their hearing, find a way to pay the bail amount out of pocket, or partner with a bail bondsman like Delco Bail Bonds.
If the individual does opt for paying bail, it's important to note that, depending upon the individual jail or holding facility in question, different forms of payment may or may not be accepted. For example, many jails won't accept credit cards to cover bail (though some will). This can make it especially tricky to figure out how to arrange for bail to be met.
Partnering with a bail bondsman, on the other hand, only costs the defendant or paying party a percentage of the total bail amount up front, which is a nonrefundable fee paid to the bondsman. In return for this fee, the bail bondsman will post the entire bail on behalf of their client, freeing them to leave their jail or holding facility and return home with the contractual agreement that they will show up to all of their court hearings.
If a defendant (or their family or another party) chooses to arrange for a bondsman's help, the bondsman will work with them to explain their options, any fees involved, and what their contract stipulates for each party involved. The paperwork and contracts involved are often electronically available for the sake of convenience.
