The bail bond system is designed to release a defendant from jail for the duration of his or her court case. When you find out that a family member or friend is in jail, you can contact a bail bond company to post bail and get that individual out of jail as quickly as possible. Bail is set during the booking process and the defendant has several options for release. A bail is a performance-based contract and the defendant must attend all required court dates. Contact an Orlando Bail Bondsman if you are in need of bonding services.

How Do Bail Bonds Work?
A bail bond is formally known as a “surety bond”. Usually, a friend, relative, attorney or defendant will contact a bail bond company by phone. During the initial phone consultation, most bail bond companies will collect basic information about the situation, such as where is the detainee being held, how long have they been there, what are the charges, how long have they been in their current residence, do they work, etc. The bail company is assessing the risk involved in the bail bond.
If the client and Orlando Bail Bondsman agree to do the bond, a scheduled meeting will then take place at one of our two offices located in Central Florida.
After the client arrives at the office, and the bail bond paperwork is finalized, our agent will “post” the bond at the correctional facility/jail which will result in the release of the defendant.
For this service, the customer is charged a fee (10% of the full bail amount, or a minimum of $100 which is mandated by Florida state laws). All Star Bail Bonds ™ and Magic Bail Bonds™ offers payment arrangements to meet your needs.
Arrest and Booking
When an individual is arrested, they will be taken to the local jail for booking. During the arrest and booking process, bail will be set. After they have been booked, the defendant has several options for release which are outlined below.
The booking process basically consists of fingerprinting, background check, check for warrants and getting into the computer system.
There is a considerable amount of work involved on the jail’s part to get the defendant processed in. Once the defendant is booked in, the computer system will need to be updated. The entire process can be time-consuming. All of this must be completed before a bail bond can be posted.
A bail is a performance-based contract. He/she must perform by attending all required court dates. Failure to attend court will result in a breach of the bail contract. Please contact an Orlando Bail Bondsman if you are in need of bonding services.
