FAQ > What is a bond?

A bond is used when someone doesn’t have the money to pay the bail straight away. A bail bond company can pay the money for you, and that is called a bond. Using some form of collateral, like their house or car, the defendant makes an arrangement with a bail bond company to pay the rest of it. If for some reason you don’t show up at your hearing, the company has to pay your complete bail, and you forfeit whatever it is you put up as collateral.
