In case you don’t have the bail money, you can contact a bond agency and ask the licensed bondman to help you by posting the amount at the court for you. Bondsmen charge a service fee for their services, and ask for a collateral to secure the bond loan. When the bond amount is posted, the defendant is released from incarceration and must show in court when ordered to do so. In case he or she fails, the bond amount is forfeited.
