Understanding Bail Bonds And what you need to know
The first step in finding a good bail bondsman is understanding bail.
While some people will remain in jail until their court date, others get released on bail. Bail is a payment—usually either in cash or property—that lets the defendant go free until his or her trial date. During the defendant’s arraignment, factors such as the nature of the crime committed and the criminal history of the defendant contribute to the determination of the bail amount.
When bail is paid, the defendant agrees to appear in court at the proper date and time. As long as the defendant honors their agreement, they will get most of their money back. However, if the defendant fails to appear on the court date, they will lose their money.

Not all defendants can afford to pay their bail.
While family members may be able to pay bail for some defendants, this isn’t an option for everyone. That’s why bail bondsmen exist. A bail bondsman can cover the bail you can’t afford. Usually, they charge 10% for their services. The defendant and/or family members will pay the bail bondsman back according to the payment plan they have agreed to.
When bail is paid, the defendant (the person being released on bail) agrees to show up in court. As long as the defendant fulfills their obligation to appear in court, there won’t be any issues. However, in the case that the defendant fails to appear to court, there are serious consequences. The bail bondsman has the right to hunt down the defendant and sue them for the bail money. This is in addition to the defendant being searched for by the police and possibly getting additional charges and fees.

How Bail Bonds Work In Archuleta County
A defendant must be fully booked and fingerprints must be cleared, which can take a few hours, before a bond is accepted. Typically a bond will take between 3-6 hours. As most bonds need to be submitted before 9:00 pm, we recommend posting the bond as early as possible to allow enough time for this process.
Important Phone Numbers
Cash Bail – The bail is paid in cash, which will be held until the defendant’s court appearance.
Surety Bond – A bail agent (backed by a surety company) will pay the total bail amount if the defendant does not appear in court.
Release on Citation (Cite Out) – The arresting officer gives the offender a citation informing them to appear in court on their court date.
Release on Personal (Own) Recognizance (P.R.) – The defendant is released without payment until the court date.
Property Bond – When a defendant posts property and/or insurance to the court instead of money. If the defendant fails to appear for their hearing the property may be foreclosed on.
Some Types Of Bonds We Service:
Felony Bail Bonds
In the US, the distinction between felony and misdemeanor has to do with length of punishment. A crime that is punishable by more than one year is a felony; less than one year is a misdemeanor.
Traffic Bail Bonds
A court can issue a warrant for unpaid traffic tickets, which is the most common type of arrest warrant. If you forget your citations you could find yourself in handcuffs.
Domestic Violence Bail Bonds
Domestic violence can mean any crime committed as a means of coercion, control, intimidation, punishment, or revenge. A roommate breaking your stereo as an act of retaliation can constitute domestic violence.
Domestic Violence Bail Bonds
A person who knows that they have a warrant is in a good position. They can arrange for a bond before actually being arrested. Once the bond is approved they can turn themselves in knowing they will be released and not spend time in jail or risk being arrested in embarrassing circumstances.
