When a person is charged with a crime they have the option of posting a bail bond. The bond amount is set by a bail bond schedule, or by the Court according to the charges. The cost of a bail bond in Florida is 10% of the total bond amount.
We will sometimes require some form of guarantee, or collateral to assure the client's appearance in Court.The collateral requirements will vary according to the charges, and individual circumstances. Once the client complies with all the conditions of the bail bond contract, the bond is discharged and all collateral is returned to the depositor.
