How the Bail Bond Process Works in Connecticut, Hartford, Connecticut

If your son, daughter, grandchild, or sibling is arrested for a crime, it’s normal to feel overwhelmed and unsure of what to do. Most people don’t have a lot of experience with the criminal justice system, so you may not know how to start getting your family member released, or how bail bonds work. Fortunately, in the state of Connecticut, the process is fairly straightforward. For starters, all you need is a good bail bondsman and a few important pieces of information.

How Bail Bonds Work in Connecticut

To get your loved one out of jail, you’ll need to find a reputable bail bond company that offers bail services in the area they were arrested. Many companies have bondsmen throughout the state, so you may be able to find a local bail bondsman near you. Next, you’ll need to provide the bondsman with the correct spelling of your family member’s name, their date of birth, and the location where they’re being held.

bail bondsThe bail bond company will take it from there. Using the information you’ve provided, they’ll get in touch with the police department and find out what the defendant’s charges are and how much the bail amount is. Keep in mind that the bail bond fees are set by the Connecticut Insurance Department, so no bondsman can charge more or less than the amount set by the state.

In Connecticut, the bail fee is 10% of the bond for the first $5,000, and 7% for any amount over that limit. So the fee on a $1,000 bail bond would be $100, while a $5,500 bond would be $535. Once the bondsman has established the bail amount, they’ll work with you to ensure you can pay the fee and post bail for your family member, ensuring the fastest release possible.
