Bail is money or form of property used by the court to ensure that the defendant will appear at all of his scheduled court appearances. One missed appearance will forfeit the bail posted. It may also result in owing the court the rest of the bail amount if only a partial payment of the bail was made.
A bondsman can be hired to post bail for a defendant if he or she is unable to meet the financial amount set by the court. The fee for this kind of service is usually 10% of the bail amount. In return for the fee, the bondsman will guarantee full payment of the bond as well as held liable for the rest of the bail amount if only a partial payment was made.
