The bail system is designed to guarantee the timely appearance of a defendant in court. Bail is also an insurance policy for the state that the defendant will appear to face charges.

How long does it take to get out on bail?
The paperwork takes approximately 15-30 minutes. The release time after the jail receives our paperwork is generally one hour or less for small jails and 1-3 hours for larger county jails, Generally speaking, the larger the holding facility the longer it takes.
Why don't I get my premium back?
Of course the collateral will only be returned if there is no outstanding balance due on the premium. Some court jurisdictions send written confirmation of New Jersey bail bond exoneration quickly; others are very behind and may require some research.
What happens if the person does not appear in court as promised?
The bond will be ordered forfeited by the court and a warrant is issued for the person’s arrest. The warrant will be entered in a state and sometimes national locator system so the fugitive may be apprehended. The bail agency will also receive notice of the missed court appearance.
Bail bond agencies normally call the person’s home, work, and other references to try and find the fugitive and arrange a new court date if these efforts are unsuccessful, the agency may then search and employ apprehension specialists (A.K.A. Bounty Hunters) to arrest the fugitive as the co-signer you want to convince the fugitive to return to court as soon as possible.
If the defendant reappears in court without delay you will only be liable for a small failure to appear fee and possibly court costs. Typically, the longer the defendant delays making a new court date, the higher the fees will be. If ultimately the defendant has absconded and cannot be located within the time allowed by the court, the entire amount of the bond must be paid.
