    • Property Bond

    • Surety Bond
      Bond may be posted through the service of any state-licensed bondsman, who may require a co-signer and/or collateral to secure the bond. Staff members will not recommend a bondsman.
    • Personal Recognizance Bond
      The judge may grant a personal recognizance (PR) bond. This is a signature bond involving no money or property as long as the individual appears at all future court dates. Individuals will be released on their own signature, which acts as a promise to appear in court.
    • PR Bond with Co-signer
      The judge may also grant a PR bond with a co-signer. The individual must find someone who meets the co-signer requirements and who is willing to sign the bond. The individual and the co-signer are responsible for the amount of money for the bond.
