What is a bail bond?


A bail bond is a contract between the bondee, a bail bondsman and the State of North Carolina. This contract allows the bondsman to bail the bondee out of jail for a fee, which is up to 15% of the bond amount set by a judge. The bondsman is then charged to ensure that the bondee attends their court dates. If the bondee does not make their court date, the bail bondsman must pay the full amount of the bond.

How much is the fee on a bail bond?

According to North Carolina state law, no bonding agency can charge more than 15% of the amount of the bond. However, depending on criminal history and many other factors, the bail bondsman may decide to charge a lower fee.

Does the money have to be paid all at once?

No, the payment does not have to be paid all at once. Our bail bondsmen can work with you to arrange a payment plan.

What is a cosigner on a bail bond?

To minimize the risk of providing a bond, we’ll add a cosigner who is liable to pay the premium of the bond if the bondee fails to pay or skips their court date.
