Bondsman are agents that have approval of the judges to act as a surety for the various courts. These bondsman are available 24 hours a day and are in business to assist in this process. The bonding process is usually started by family, a friend, or employer of the arrestee and is referred to as the Cosigner. The bondsman require a cosigner and the cosigner must sign the contract stating they are responsible for the full amount of the bond if the Arrestee doesn’t go to court. After contact is made with a bondsman, he will communicate his needs (references and photo ID) and the funds (10 % of the total bond amount plus 37$) for his services. None of this amount is refundable. The Bond Office accepts the bondsman as the surety and enters this into the court record. When the release is processed, the defendant leaves their housing facility and meets with the bondsman to also sign the contract.
