Normally after someone is arrested, they are taken to jail to begin processing. After the booking process has been accomplished bail will be set according to the offense. Bail is a guarantee to the court that someone will appear at all of their scheduled court dates and will remain in a specified area until all legal proceedings pertaining to their case are completed.
In North Carolina bail can be paid:
1. In Cash
2. A pledge of property
(if permitted in that court)
3. A bail bond:
A) Bail bond premiums in North Carolina are set and approved not to exceed 15% of the bond full face amount for state cases.
B) A signature & Guaranty Agreement is sometimes all that is needed.
C) Once the case is closed, regardless of the outcome, your collateral is returned.
