Frequently Asked Questions

Do you serve other areas outside of Florida?

Yes, Harrison Bail Bonds serves all 50 states. Our offices are located in Crawfordville and Tallahassee, FL but we do provide bail bonds services to all of the United States.

What happens if the defendant doesn't appear in court?

If this happens, a bench warrant will be issued for your defendant's arrest. They will also be identified by police as a fugitive. Harrison Bail Bonds will do everything possible to retrieve your defendant. This includes the hiring of Bail Enforcement Agents. If your defendant doesn't appear, you should also help locate your defendant and convince them to appear in court. The longer it takes to get them to appear, the more likely it is that the judge will remit your defendant's case to the state. When this happens, your collateral is forfeit.

When do I get my bail bond collateral back?

As soon as your defendant's court case is completed and all of our relevant financial obligations are satisfied, your collateral will be returned in full.

How do I know that I can trust a bail bondsman?

In the case of Harrison Bail Bonds, you'll be working with honest, certified bail bondsmen. You'll know this because we're in our 5th generation of service as Leon County Bail Bondsman. Harrison Bail Bonds is a local, family-owned business that has built a great reputation in your town. You can't mention Tallahassee bail bonds without mentioning Harrison Bail Bonds!

Is my bail bond premium refundable?

No. This is the amount that you paid for services rendered. By getting your defendant out of jail, Harrison Bail Bonds fully earned the premium amount. If, however, you put up collateral as a part of your bond, that will be returned in full as soon as client's financial obligations are satisfied.

Can I get a refund if my charges are dropped?

If your bail is posted and the charges are subsequently dropped, then your premium is not refundable. Your premium is paid to get your defendant out of jail ASAP; if your bond is posted, then services have been successfully rendered. This applies whether the charges are dropped a few hours or a few months after bail has been posted.

What if the defendant is arrested while out on bond?

If this happens, you need to contact Harrison Bail Bonds immediately. Your bondsman here will help you explore all of your options.

Are there any travel restrictions if I am out on bond?

Before your defendant tries to leave the state or country, make sure that he or she gets written permission from the bonding office. This especially applies if the court has given your defendant explicit instructions to not leave the state or country.

How much does a bail bond cost?

The cost of the bond is dependent upon the cost of bail set by the Judge in your case. Harrison Bail bonds charges 10% on any bond over $1000 or minimum $100 per charge on bonds under $10000. (Example: $10,000 bail would require a bond of anywhere from $1000- $1,500)

Can a bondsman refer a good attorney?

The answer is no. Due to various industry standards, it is illegal for a bondsman to refer an attorney.

What if I bond someone out and they run?

In this event, it's important to notify the bail bond company, the defendant's attorney, and anyone else involved in the case, including all court entities. IF you co-signed the bond, you are responsible for the full bond amount if the accused does not appear in court.

What is Release on Own Recognizance (ROR)?

If someone is Released on Own Recognizance, that person is being released under the promise that he/she will return for the court date assigned in the case. Eligibility for ROR is determined by either a Judge or the review staff at the jail.

Who is a Defendant?

The defendant is the individual being accused of the crime.

What is Pretrial Release?

Pretrial Release is a government funded form of inmate release. If the client qualifies, there are often conditions ranging from attending classes, random drug tests, regular meetings with your supervising agent, and payments. It's a form of supervision before a case is tried in court.

What is a bail bond?

A bail bond is a term for either property or money that is used to secure release from incarceration based on the bond amount set by the Judge.

How does the payment of a bond work?

Typically, the defendant is given a set bond amount by the Judge. If a defendant or their loved ones choose to use a bondsman, they pay a non-refundable deposit of 10% of the total bond in exchange for the bondsman paying the entire bond amount to ensure client's release from jail ASAP.

Is there a difference in which bondsman I use?

Most definitely. Many people offer bonds services, but few offer the experience and professionalism of Harrison Bail Bonds. Here at Harrison Bail Bonds we have been in the business for 5 generations as bondsmen in Tallahassee and the surrounding areas, ensuring professional, discreet, and prompt release of our clients. A defendant will always want to use a reputable and experienced bondsman with a history of doing good business.

How long does it take for someone to be released from jail after bonding out?
