FAQs

A bail bonds is an undertaking by the defendant to appear in court as required upon penalty of forfeiting bail to the State in a stated amount. The most common bail bond in North Carolina is an appearance bond secured by at least one surety – the bail bondsman.
After your or a love one has been fully booked, a bail amount will be determined for his or her release. After the bail amount has been set you can call a professional bail bond agent from Champion Bail Bonding to start the bail bond process and help your friend or loved one "post bail."   A bail agent is a person permitted to solicit, negotiate, and affect undertakings of bail on behalf of any surety insurer. The bail bond process does not take long after the individual has been fully booked.
Bail Bond premiums in North Carolina are up to 15% of full amount of bond bail. However, agent/surety discretion is used. This is governed by North Carolina Department of Insurance.
If a defendant "jumps bail" or fails to appear, his or her bail will be revoked. At that point, the defendant has lost the right to be free before trial. The court can issue an arrest warrant for the failure to appear (FTA). In most states, failing to appear is a crime. So, the defendant who jumps bail ends up with the original criminal charge plus an additional FTA criminal charge. The warrant remains active until the defendant's capture. A defendant's bail can be revoked for many other reasons, including: committing a crime while released, even in the absence of a conviction for that crime, and violating any other condition of bail, such as failing to stay away from the crime victim. Bail can also be revoked for non-payment to the bail bondsman!
There are other types of bail bonds like federal bonds, including; property, cash, surety, immigration, tickets and more. Read more about each individual bond here.
Collateral is cash or property deposited with the bail bond company, such as Champion Bail Bonding considered as “Good Faith” money in order to secure the appearance of the defendant in court. Once the obligation to appear has been satisfied all collateral must be returned in full. Cash or Real Estate property are the only accepted forms of collateral.

If you pay the full amount of bail on your own, which is referred to as a "cash bail," you can expect to receive all of your money back at the conclusion of the case provided that you do not violate the terms of your release. If you hire Champion Bail Bonding, we keep the premium that you pay us, which is our fee for the service we provide. So with that said, you will not get your money back using our services, but you will be able to secure a release from jail without having to come up with the full amount of bail on an emergency basis.
If a defendant fails to appear in court, a judge can forfeit the bond. Once a bond is forfeited, a bail bondsman must either apprehend and surrender the defendant to the jurisdiction of the court or pay the total sum of the bond.
After all the paperwork is completed, the bail bondsman will present the bail bond to the court or jail. The amount of time it takes the court or jail to process the bail bond varies based on the work loads and size of the facility. Once the bail bond is presented to the court or jail, the bail bond bondsman will contact the indemnitor to advise the timeline for the defendant’s release. This depends on the jail and how long their paperwork processing takes. It could be within 30 minutes or up to 24 hours.
As a co-signer or indemnitor you are providing a contractual guarantee to the bail bond company that you will guarantee responsibility that the defendant will appear in court every time they are ordered to appear. It is also required that the defendant will call into the office weekly to update us on their court dates. Once the defendants case is completed, you as the co-signer are free of liability for the bond and from the defendant.
Posting a property bond means you pledge the value of real property to the court to guarantee the defendant will appear in court. If the defendant does not come to court when he or she is supposed to, the court will take the posted property as if it were cash bail.
