Bail and Bondsman

If you have been arrested in Georgia on a state felony or misdemeanor charge and have a bond set, there are four ways to post bond for your release such as signature bond, cash bond, property bond, and bonding agency. Posting bond allows the defendant to leave jail while ensuring to show up to answer all charges at future court dates. If the defendant who posted bond does not show up, a warrant will be issued for their arrest.

In Georgia, the percentage a bonding agency can charge is higher than the national average of 10%. In Georgia, 12% to 15% is commonplace when it comes to the non-refundable fee amount a bonding agency will ask for their services. There are other agencies that provide lending services if the defendant does not have the money required for the bonding agency fee. Collateral such as property or vehicle is commonly used.
