How Do Bail Bonds Work in Texas?

In Texas, the process of bail bonding is different in every county. The definition of bail is the procedure by which courts will allow someone accused of a crime to leave jail while they wait for their trial date. In other words, it is a payment given to the court to allow someone out of jail temporarily until the trial begins. 

This amount should help guarantee that you will be in court on that set date. However, usually this amount is a large amount of money that most people will not be able to pay immediately. This is why bail bonding can be helpful, but in Texas the bonding process can be complicated.

So How Does the Process Work?

A bail bond is a written document in which the court informs the accused that he or she can leave jail for now but must return on a specific date in exchange for a certain type of bond. In order to be released from custody, in the state of Texas, bail has to be posted. Texas proposes different ways to post bail, and certain methods will depend on your situation. Also, depending on your reason for arrest, there can be a set time for you to be held in custody. The different types of ways to post bond are:

Release on One’s Own Recognizance (R.O.R. or O.R.): This means that you can be released without any motivation for bail. Depending on the severity of the crime, and if the judge finds you responsible enough to come back for the set court date, you could be released on an R.O.R.

Surety bond: This type of bond is the most common type of bond, and it is a bond in which someone other than the accused accepts liability for guaranteeing the accused will return to court

Cash bond: This is payment in cash by the accused for the complete amount of bond set by the judge. Usually the accused will pay with their own money or with help from their friends and family. You should be refunded for this amount if you fully comply with your duty to arrive to court.
