Steps to Take to Post Bail

If you or a loved one has been arrested, a judge may set a bail amount that must be paid prior to being released from jail. Bail can be paid in cash, or via a property bond or surety bond in Virginia. The defendant, a friend, or a family member can obtain a surety bond from a licensed bail bondsman at a bail bond company.
