When a person is arrested and taken to jail, a bail amount is set which must be posted in order for the person to get out of jail. Sometimes the bail amount is considerably high due to the nature of the crime committed. If a person is unable to pay the bail amount, they can hire a bail bond company to post the bail amount. The bail bond is a surety bond that is paid to the court as insurance that the person shows back up to court for their court hearing. If the person does not appear in court for their hearing, the bond will be relinquished. The bail bond agency will be out the money they posted for bail, and the court will issue a warrant for the person to be arrested and placed back in jail.

If the crime committed by the person held for bail is not considered serious, bail usually can be made immediately. If the crime committed by the person held for bail is considered a serious crime, bail cannot be made until a bail hearing. At the bail hearing, a judge will decide if bail can be posted and how much the bail will be in order for the person to be released from jail.

When a person is arrested and booked for any crime, they must have a first appearance or a bail hearing with a judge or magistrate of the court.  Once the person arrested is admitted to jail and a bail amount is set, they may then post bail or hire a bail bondsman.

In the State of Michigan, the fee for writing a bail bond is ten percent (10%) of the bond amount.  (a $1,000 Bond would be $100)  

                                                 $1,000 x 10% = $100                                              


In certain circumstances, depending on the bond amount and the charges, providing collateral to secure a bail bond may be necessary.

Once a defendant is released from actual custody on a bail bond, both the defendant and their cosigner(s) are financially responsible for the defendant's appearance in court.
