FAQ in New York

What Is the Purpose of Bail?

The purpose of bail is to give the defendant their freedom while the case is still open and to assure that once the defendant is released they continue to appear for each and every court date. If the defendant violates the terms of the court order and forfeits the bail the signors are then obligated to pay the full amount of the bail to the bail bonds company.

What Is a Surety Hearing or Bail Sufficiency Hearing?

This is a procedure that the district attorney goes through to prove the legitimacy of the funds used for the collateral and premium.


What Is Meant by Bail Bond?

A bail bond is the security cash or insurance company bond given to the court in the form of a contract between the court and the defendant and their sureties. The sureties are the bondsmen and anyone who is willing to be a signor on the bond.
