Bail bond services in Clearwater, FL, are available for felony or misdemeanor suspects. Nearly all bail bonds are exactly the same, but there are a few exceptions. Here’s what they are and how defendants can enjoy the convenience of each.
A cash bond is the full bail amount paid in cash. Some courts only accept cash, so they call bail paid in this manner a bond. Defendants or third parties are allowed to pay cash bond.
A walk-through bond is a bail bond paid in advance of an arrest. It saves the defendant from a less-than-graceful scene involving an arrest in front of one’s family or coworkers.
Since the walk-through bond occurs at the time of surrender, defendants typically face little to no pre-trial time in jail.
A surety bond is the classic type of bail bond accepted by most courts. A surety bond is an agreement between three parties, one of which insures the bond. The insurance guarantees that the insuring party pays the full bail amount if the defendant does not show for trial proceedings.
Felony or Misdemeanor Surety Bonds
Surety bonds are no respecter of charges. Bond agents offer them on a wide array of bail amounts and for both misdemeanor and felony charges. The bond price or premium is about 10 percent of bail.
Acceptable payments include cash, personal checks, business checks and credit cards. Collateral is also acceptable, but it might not be necessary. Financing (bail bond loans) are also available.
