If someone is arrested because of a crime that they committed or they are being accused of committing one, the experience can be really difficult for someone. When you get arrest you can be able to go back home if you apply for a bail case and it gets approved, and you can be attending your trail, and you get your judgment. A judge usually orders that someone to provide the courts with a guarantee that you will return for the trial before they order for your release. The guarantee is usually known as a bail bond, and it is paid to the court in form of money or property. The bond is set during a trial that is known as a bail hearing this is where a judge will meet with the defendant. There are usually two types of bond for example secured bond or property bond. The judge is the one will decide which type of bond they accused person will be given and they will be able to determine this by checking the financial situation of the defendant. Time someone else might decide to post bail for you and the courts will recognize them as surety, and it is a must for the court to also check their finances.
As a surety it is important for you to make sure that before you post bail for someone you are certain that they will not be a letdown and that they will always attend all the courts hearings. The defendant and the surety usually have a couple of things that they should do, and the judge usually informs them during the bail verdict. If the defendant does not take their responsibilities seriously and does not attend their hearings then they will be violating their rights, and their bail will certainly be revoked. As a surety make sure that you are certain that the defendant will not be a letdown and that they are responsible before you decide on paying bail. The good thing is that if you don’t have money in cash, you can pay the bill using a cheque that has been certified. When bail has been paid it is important for the defendant to keep the receipts that they will receive as this is what you will use to collect your refund once you have met all the bail terms. Getting your refund is also a process, and it takes time because it needs to be granted by the judge; therefore, your attorney has to fail a motion first.
