When a person is incarcerated there are several ways for that individual to post a bond to secure their release. The different types of bonds. Own Recognizance bonds require an individual to sign stating they will return on their appointed court date and is not secured by any other means. a surety bond requires someone of the Judges choosing to sign, most commonly a spouse or parent. But does not require any money at the time of release, however the bond does state a monetary amount and the signer assumes that burden if the court date is missed. An unsecured bond has a monetary amount assigned to it but does not require money at the time of release, this bond is much like a surety bond but can be signed by the person being released. A partially secured bond has a monetary value and a percentage of that must be paid before release. The total amount and the percentage to be paid are both set by the Judge issuing the bond. A property bond has a monetary value and is allowed to be secured through the use of owned property. This can only be done at the courthouse. All bonds shall be paid at the courthouse during the hours of 8-4 Monday thorough Friday. Cash and surety bonds may be paid at the jail when the courthouse is not open and if under $10,000.
