How Bail Bonds Companies Make Money

Breaking the law comes with consequences. If you find yourself being arrested, you are likely stressed and not sure of what to expect moving forward. After being processed into the system, the judge will set your court date. In most cases, bail will be set for you. As long as you pay that amount, you are free to leave jail until your scheduled court date.

While this may seem simple, it isn’t always that easy. If you cannot afford to post bail, you are forced to sit in jail until court. This is surprisingly common. There are other options though.
