Bail Bonds We Offer

Commercial bonds

Once the amount of the bail is set, the defendant's choices are to remain in jail until the charges are resolved at trial, to arrange for a bail bond, or pay the bail amount in full until the case is resolved.
The bail money is put up by a bail bond company after signing a contract with a defendant to receive 12 percent of the bail amount in exchange for guaranteeing the entire amount to the court.

Signature Bonds

A signature bond is used in criminal law as an alternative to the traditional surety bail bond. The signature bond (or R.O.R) requires the defendant to sign a promise to return to the court for trial, with the possibility of the entry of a monetary judgment against him if he fails to do so, but does not require a deposit of any cash or property with the court. This type of bond is frequently allowed to defendants with no prior criminal history who are accused of minor felonies and who do not pose a risk of flight or a danger to the community at large.

Release-On-Own Recognizance Bonds

A recognizance release (or being released on your own recognizance) is probably the second most agreeable type of bond, as far as the defendant's role is concerned. With a recognizance release, the defendant does not have to pay a dime up front to be released.

Citation Release

A citation release occurs when the defendant in question was given a citation (usually for traffic offenses) and was never taken into custody. This type of discharge is up to the discretion of the citing officer. In other words, you cannot apply or appeal for a citation release bond on your own.

Arrest Warrant Bonds

An arrest warrant is essentially a court-ordered document that directs police to arrest an individual and bring them to appear before the court. All warrants have similar requirements and often sound basically the same. The particulars of a warrant are based on state law, so there is some variation in the requirements and wording by different states. Warrants are usually issued at the request of law enforcement officers and are approved by a magistrate or judge.

Surety Bonds

A surety bond is the most standard type of bail bond. A surety bond is almost always given through a bail bond company (like us here at Express Bail Bonds) and will cost the defendant 12% of the total bail amount.

*The bail amount is always set by a judge, who uses the circumstances of the criminal act to determine the amount to charge.

Immigration Bonds

Another distinct type of bond is an immigration bail bond. Immigration bail bonds only exist for offenses committed by individuals who are not from the United States.

Immigration bail bonds have very, very strict requirements. They are very complicated and often take a long period to complete. Never attempt to handle immigration cases on your own.

Federal Bonds

These are pretty self-explanatory. Federal bail bonds are just that: bail bonds for federal offenses. Unfortunately, federal bonds are often very expensive and difficult to obtain. If you need help with a federal bail bond, please do not hesitate to contact the bail professionals at Express Bail Bonds.

Property Bonds

For property bonds, the full rights of any property must be used (no partials). The most commonly accepted type of property bond uses real estate as collateral. Still, it is also not the only acceptable type of property for these types of bonds.
