It is never easy when we have someone in the family or a close friend that continues to get in trouble with the law, or it could be their first time, either way, it’s uncomfortable and the unknown is always scary.

If you’re now in the stage of looking into bailing someone out of jail then to continue to read on.



There are plenty of King County bail bonds in the Seattle area, but before running to the nearest bail bond agency, let’s make sure you know how bail bonds work. 

There are two types of bonds. 1) Cash Bond. 2) Bail Bond.  And both are dependent upon your current finances.

Cash Bond is when you’re able to pay out the bond upfront. So if the bond is $10,000, you’ll pay the full amount. If your loved one shows up to court, you’ll receive the amount back minus any fees.

Bail Bonds are common because many people don’t have an extra $10,000 in their bank account.

If you use a bail bond, you’ll only have to pay a percentage of the bail amount. You’ll have to apply to see if you’re eligible because the company you’ll be using will be putting their own cash on your behalf.
