Bail is cash or a cash equivalent that an arrested person gives to the court.
There are two ways to pay your bail. You may either pay the full amount of the bail or you may use a bail bondsman to post a bond. You can usually buy a bail bond for about 10% of the full amount of the bail. This premium is the bond seller's fee for taking the risk that you won't appear in court. Once the bail is posted, this fee is non-refundable.
You will need the fee (usually about 10% on bonds up to $5000, and about 7% on bonds over $5000.), a cosigner, and possibly some collateral.
No. The fee is not refundable.
