It is really a frightening and scary experience to spend time in jail after you accused for a crime. However, you need to know that you are legally innocent until you are proven guilty by the law. Most of the courts usually allow the accused to be released until their trail or hearing. But, court may ask the accused to provide some kind of guarantee before their release from the jail. The guarantee provided assures that they will return to face the charges if they are found guilty. The security or guarantee provided is referred as Bail Bonds and it should be provided to the court in the form of property, cash, secured bond or a signature bond by Surety Company or individual.
Bail Bonds are basically fixed during the formal lawsuit procedure known as bail hearing. During this formal procedure the panel of judges meets the accused person and decides whether or not it is suitable to grant bail to the accused based on the case history. If the security of the guarantee is provided in the form of property bonds or secured bonds, then the judges will gather information about the financial resources of the defendant. The judges will also consider the information related to the sources of whatever funds or property will be used as collateral for the bail bond of the defendant. So, if you are posting Bail Bonds on behalf of the defendant then you need to know that financial conditions of the Surety will also be considered before granting bail to the defendant.
