Bail bonds provide individuals who are facing legal charges with a way to pay their bail amount if they do not have the necessary funds on hand. If you’re interested in obtaining a bail bond in Upper Marlboro , then watch this video for an introduction to how bail bonds work.
When someone is arrested and booked for a serious crime, they must wait for a bail hearing. During the hearing, the judge will consider the charges and circumstances before setting a bond amount. If the defendant can’t pay the bail amount, they can either wait in jail until their court date or hire the services of a bail bond agent. The bail bond agent will charge a percentage of the bail amount as a nonrefundable fee, and then post bail for the defendant when the bail bond paperwork is complete.
