Bail Bonds or otherwise known as "Surety Bonds" are a specialized contract that basically guarantees that the defendant will appear in court. When you post a bail bond, you and the bail agent agree together to be responsible for the full amount of the bail bond in case the defendant fails to make an appearance in court.

Criminal Background Checks

Don't pay for a criminal background check. Run a do-it-yourself free background check on people and businesses. Once you're out of jail and done with the court system you'll want to work at getting your record expunged.

Most companies do criminal background checks on new hires and you don't want your record to cost you a job. You may need to hire a lawyer or contact the local courts to find out how to do this. The first step is to run a free background check. If you have additional questions post them on our Get Answers page.
