What It Means to Skip Bail

A bonding company near Maryland can help you get a family member or friend released from jail, even if the bail amount is much higher than you think you can afford. Surety bail bonds, backed by surety companies, allow bondsmen to post bail for amounts much higher than the amount of cash an average person can obtain on short notice.
