FAQ

Q: What is a Transfer Bond?

A:

When a loved one is in jail away from home, a family member or loved one can work with our agents locally and then our team can work with another bondmen within the AIA Organization that bonds in the area where the defendant is contained and both agents work together to get the defendant released from jail. There are special conditions to performing a Transfer Bond so it’s better to reach out to one of our team members for more details about this service.

Q: What is an Indemnitor?

A:

An individual (family member, loved one, friend or co-worker of the defendant) who agrees to secure/compensate the costs associated with the bond should the defendant fail to appear in court or fails to adhere to the agreements of the bond.

We sometimes request an Indemnitor/Guarantor to be on the bond with the defendant to give us more assurance that the defendant will appear in court. We can request an Indemnitor in such cases when the defendant has a history of failing to appear in court or when the defendant has no ties to the community or in any situation where the bonding agent feels additional assurance is needed before agreeing to do the bond.

Q: What is Collateral and how does it work?

A:

The bondsman may require collateral to secure the guarantee of the bond to ensure the defendant’s appearance in court. Collateral is an item that holds value equal to or in excess of the amount of the bond, such as property, jewelry, vehicles, ATV’s, etc. Once the need for the bond service is complete, the defendant’s case is resolved and the bond premiums are paid in full, the collateral is returned to the indemnitor/guarantor.

We sometimes require collateral (typically in cases of large bonds) to guarantee the bond and/or ensure the defendant appears in court.
