A bail bond is a contract between the court and a licensed bail agent that requires the bail agent to ensure the appearance of the defendant at all required court procedings or pay the entire "face-amount" of bail to the court.
If you or a loved one has been arrested and your charge(s) are "bondable", you have several options:

  • OPTION #1:
    You can pay the entire "face-amount" of your bail which will be released back to you once your case has been concluded.

  • OPTION #2:
    You can use collateral or personal property to secure your bail. For example, if you or someone you know owns real estate, you can surrender the mortgage deed to secure your bail. However, if for any reason, the defendant fails to appear at court as required, the property may be forfeited (lost) and sold to cover the amount of bail.

  • OPTION #3:
    You can choose to remain in jail until your court appearance, at which you may be released without having to pay anything.

  • OPTION #4:
    Or, you can contact a bail bonding company and pay a percentage of the bail amount to secure your freedom. Our "bail-out" agents have a plan to get you back you back home quickly that rarely fails!
We make the process to get a bail bond simple and quick! With one call, we can begin working on your case immediately. We can contact the jail to get the latest status of a defendant and confirm the bail amount, give you a free quote and process your forms all within a few minutes.

Once your paperwork has been completed and we have received your payment, our "Bail-Out" agents will deliver your bond asap to begin the release process.
Unfortunately, there really is no answer to that question. Once we have delivered the bond, the release process can take from mimutes to even hours. The primary delay is the time it takes the jail to process the arrested individual for release once the bond has been delivered to the jail.

Please Note: Parker Bail Bonds can not expedite the release of an arrested individual once the bond has been delivered to the jail.

Collateral is usually property (real estate, vehicle title, etc.), additional cash premiums, or a mix of both that you deposit with the bail bonding company. Your collateral, if required, will be held until the bail bond is exonerated and the premium has been paid in full. However, in many situations, we do not require collateral.
Although some bail bonds require the arrested individual or the co-signor to place collateral, many bonds can be done with just a signature guarantee.
An indemnitor or co-signer is a person who agrees to be financially responsible for the full amount of the bail bond in the event that the defendant fails to make a court appearance and cannot return to court. If there is more than one indemnitor on a bail bond, they are jointly liable. This means the money could be collected from one or both of them.

To be considered as an indemnitor or cosigner, you must:
  1. be employed
  2. live or work in the same area as the defendant
  3. own or rent a home for more than 3 years
  4. know the whereabouts of the defendant at all times
  5. ensure that the defendant will appear in court as required
  6. agree to repay any remaining balance on account

No. Once the defendant has been released from jail, even if they are then transferred to another facility/location, the bail bond fee is non-refundable. If you cancel the bail bond before the defendant is released, you are entitled to a refund of your premium.
If the defendant does not appear in court as required, you should contact us immediately! We may be able to arrange for a bail reinstatement, and the issuance of another court date. A bail reinstatement is a notice from the bail agent to the court stating that the defendant will voluntarily return to court and place the matter back on the calendar. The notice also states that the bail agent agrees to remain responsible for the bond.
