Bail Bondsman Services in Nashville, TN
What Is Bail?
If you are arrested and are going to trial, the courts will set a bail amount to ensure your appearance on your court date. If you are unable to pay bail, you will remain in jail until your trial, separated from your work, your family and your friends. When neither you nor your family can afford your bail, a bail bond can help.
Continuing With Your Life
A bail bond is a contractual agreement with a third party, usually a bail agent, who assumes the responsibility of your bail if you fail to appear in court. With a bail bondsman from Rader Bail Bonds on your side, you’ll have the help you need to post your bail. With a bond, you will be able to return to work and your family as you prepare for your trial.
How Much Does a Bail Bond Cost?
Bail bond agencies charge a premium in exchange for posting the bail amount and releasing you, the defendant, from custody. : Generally, the premium is 10 percent of the total bail set by the court plus a $12.00 state tax and a $25 filing fee. For example, if your bail is set at $10,000, the cost of a bond would be $1,000 + $12.00 + 25.00 totaling $1,037.
