Bail bonds are a type of surety bond. This means that by definition they are a written three-party contract in which the person acquiring and providing the bond is obligated to pay a set amount of money if certain obligations in the contract are not met. If you need bail bonds, all you need to do is contact a surety bond company like Blackburn Betts PLLC.
Bail bonds are crucial to the judiciary process because they ensure the release of the defendant from jail. This can be done through one of two types of bail bonds. Criminal bail bonds are the first type. They are used in criminal cases and guarantee the defendant appears for trail when called. The second type is a civil bail bond. These are used in civil cases and guarantees payment of debt, plus interest and costs that the defendant is responsible for.
