What you need to know about Bail

What you need to know about Bail is that when you are charged with a Crime, the Judge will set conditions for your release.

These may include that you appear at future court hearings, do not get charged with another crime, as well as an assortment of other limitations.

To help ensure that you are inclined to follow the directions, they will often set an amount of money that you need to pay the court for your release. This is called Bail.

There are two ways that you can make your bail payment.

  • You can pay the entire amount to the Court. All of your bail money returned to you if you complete all the conditions and attend all of the hearings as required.
  • You can pay a fee of 10 percent of the total bail amount to a Bail Bonds company. At the completion of your case, your collateral will be returned. The bail bonds company will keep the fee.

What you need to know about Bail to get your money back.

Be aware that if you do not appear at your court hearings, or meet all of your conditions, you will forfeit your Bail money.

We know that this can be a life changing event but it isn’t the end of the world.  

There are many ways an experienced attorney can fight for you.

Gotten many tickets dropped or the charge reduced to a non moving violation. Yes it would be great if they all could be dropped but at the end of the day my insurance is still affordable. Anyone leaving bad reviews about the Merrill's not getting a charge totally dismissed did not listen or read well enough when entering the contact as they make it very clear that both are a possibility.
