1. Do I get my money back after the defendant goes to court if I hire a bail bond company to post bond?
No. Any money paid to a bail bond company to secure the release of an inmate in jail for court appearance is NON-REFUNDABLE. The ONLY exception is if you put up collateral (extra money aside from the fee the bail bond company charges), with the bail bond company.2. Can I post the bail bond myself?
Yes. You can pay the entire bond amount in cash to the jail to secure the release of a defendant in jail. Many jails require you to go to the county jail to post the cash bond or require you to go to the agency that issued the warrant.3. How long does it take for an inmate to be released after hiring a bail bond company?
Unfortunately, there is no set time. Most of the jails release inmates within two to four hours depending on which facility.
