Understanding Surety Bonds

When someone you care about is arrested, you might hear the term "surety bond" mentioned. But what exactly is a surety bond, and how can it help your loved one? At Ron Owens Bail Bonds, we're here to explain surety bonds in plain language and guide you through the process of securing one for your friend or family member.

A surety bond is a type of bail bond that is backed by an insurance company. Instead of paying the full bail amount in cash, you pay a bail bond agent a smaller fee (usually 10% of the total bail), and the agent posts the surety bond on your behalf. This bond promises the court that your loved one will show up for all their required appearances.
