When a person is arrested and booked for a crime, he or she will have a bail amount set by the court magistrate or judge. Once the bail amount is set, the arrestee may then post bail or hire a professional bail bondsman to issue a secured bond guaranteeing the arrestee’s appearance in court.
Cost of the bail bond. In the State of Arkansas, the fee or premium for issuing a bail bond is ten percent (10%) of the bond amount. (E.g. a $2,000 bond would have a $200 premium) In addition to the ten percent premium, the professional bail bondsman is required to collect $60 in state mandated fees. Our company accepts cash or credit cards for premium payments.
Prepare for bonding
In certain circumstances regarding bond amount and the arrestee, collateral may be necessary to secure a bail bond. Both the arrestee (defendant) and their cosigner(s) are financially responsible for the defendant’s appearance in court.
