HOW TO BAIL/BOND A NIAGARA FALLS COUNTY INMATE OUT
There are two ways to get the inmate out of jail to await court hearings.
You can pay the entire cash bail amount to the appropriate courthouse during normal business s hours. Once the inmate appears at all hearings and the case is adjudicated, you may make a written request to the court to have your money returned, minus any applicable fees. If the inmate does not go to court as ordered, you will forfeit your money to the court.
If you cannot afford the entire cash amount, you can contact a local bail bond company. This company will ask you to pay a percentage of the total cash amount (usually 10 percent) and a small fee for processing. The company then promises the court that if your inmate is released to await court he/she will appear as ordered. If the inmate fails to appear, the bond company will pay the entire amount to the court. You do not get the 10 percent or the fee back after the case is over. This is how the company makes its money.
NOTE: If this happens, the bond company will have the right to sue you for that amount if you signed for the bond.
