Bail and Bondsman

Bonding Process
Bond can be made at any time, day or night, to release you from the Gilmer County Detention Center. If you are charged with a bondable offense, you have the right to seek a bond for your release from this facility. Bonding requires that some type of surety be posted as a good faith promise that you will appear for your court date.

Note: If you are released on bond, and fail to appear for court, you will (normally) be re-arrested on a bench warrant, which has no bond. The bondsman or person posting the security is held accountable for the full amount of the bond. Posting a bond can be accomplished in several ways. The following paragraphs briefly explain how each type of bond is made. In some cases, bonding methods are restricted, and some types may not be allowed.

Cash Bond/Cash Fine
Cash bonds are generally made for traffic offenses of a minor nature, misdemeanor violations, and civil cases. In some cases the cash bond may be accepted as a fine and substituted for a court appearance. However, it is your responsibility to make arrangements with the court.

Property Bonds
Note: Ellijay and East Ellijay Police Departments do not accept property bonds for traffic citations. If either department issued a warrant, a property bond will be accepted.

Property bond can be posted by persons owning tangible real estate within Gilmer County. This does not apply to automobiles, travel trailers, industrial equipment, boats, or similar property. It must be deeded real property, usually with a residential home on it. Undeveloped property may be accepted, if the fair market value is sufficient to meet the bonding standards.

A homeowner desiring to post his/her property for someone’s bond must meet certain criteria:

  • Produce a current tax receipt, showing fair market value;
  • Show proof of identity of all persons named on property;
  • Lawfully swear or affirm to and sign a property bond stating that the property exists, is owned by them; and that fair market value is sufficient to meeting bonding standards;
  • Original deed.
