The paperwork takes about 10 – 30 minutes, determined by the intricacy of the trade. Please remember that these times aren’t guaranteed but general time frames.
Security is real or personal property pledged to the Bond Agency, used to guarantee the bond amount in the event the defendant doesn’t appear for any of his or her court proceeding(s). Essentially, collateral is a way of ensuring the defendant will return to court and complete his or her duty to the court. Once the defendants’ case is finalized the security is returned to the rightful owner.

It’s rarely that a criminal case takes annually. In such conditions, renewal premium might need to be paid to the bail agency if a fresh bond is required by the judge. On the other hand, the court may give a bail sum decrease or a release on O.R. in some cases, which wouldn’t necessitate a new bond.
