Frequently Asked Questions






What is a bail bond?

A bail bond, also called a surety bond, is a guarantee to the court that the person being released on the bail bond will make all of their required court appearances set by the court.




How much does it cost for a Bail Bond?

The cost of the bail bond, called the premium, is usually 10% of the total bail amount. This can be paid by cash, check or credit cards.

For example, if the bail is set at $10,000 the premium would be $1,000. This is the amount charged by the bail bond company to put up the bail bond so that your friend or family member can be released from jail. This fee is not refundable.

Premium Options: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, Cash, Check, Western Union and Wire Transfers.



What if I do not have the full amount of the bond premium?

Often times we can arrange a payment plan. Please call and we can explain this more to you and answer your questions.



What if I live in or out of the area?

No matter where you are calling from, if you have a friend or family member in custody in a Missouri jail it is still possible to obtain a bail bond. The process involved simply requires faxing the contract to you and then us accepting a credit card and/or wire transfer for the bond premium.



What if I have a warrant but I have not been arrested yet? Should I turn myself in?

If you have a warrant call a bail bondsman first TOLL FREE at 1-866-581-3030. We can help.



When does my bond expire?

With our company the bond premium is a one time fee. Some companies charge a renewal fee. We never charge a renewal premium.



What is a cash only bond?

A cash only bond occurs when the judge will not allow you to be bailed out by a bail bond company. Usually these bonds are for speeding tickets, if you failed to pay unpaid fines and court costs.



What is an indemnitor or co-signer?

An indemnitor or co-signer is a person who agrees to be financially responsible for the full amount of the bail bond in the event the defendant fails to make a court appearance and cannot be returned to court. An indemnitor is responsible for paying any bail bond cost incurred as a result of the defendant missing the court date.



After I pay the premium in full can I expect to pay any more?

As long as the defendant goes to court each and every time they are expected to you will not owe the bonding company any more money. That does not include fines and court costs incurred by the courts.
