A Bail Bond is a legal instrument that lets a defendant stay away from jail until their court date comes provided that the court receives a financial guarantee that obliges the person to appear in person when the trial takes place. Signed by the Bail Bond agent, this document will confirm the court will be refunded if the defendant fails to appear in court on time - alternatively, the money paid by the defendant, their relative, or friend and deposited by the agent will be returned if the defendant assumes their responsibilities. In case the defendant ignores their court date, the company or individual that vouched for them and provided tangible financial assurances has every right to sue them to recover the money they lost to the court.
A Bail Bond template can be downloaded below. Customize it to your liking to suit the particulars of your agreement; however, at a minimum, this form must contain the address of the court in question, identify the parties (the surety and the defendant), indicate the total sum of the bail and the date of their trial, and confirm the court can use the sum of money deposited via the form if the court proceedings are concluded and the defendant does not appear. This document must be signed and dated by the Bail Bond surety. Note that Bail Bonds are notarized to certify the surety's willingness to vouch for the defendant - a notary acknowledgment has to be attached to the Bail Bond form.
