For large bonds, especially those over $10,000, the premium can be more than what many people have in savings. If this is the situation, you may be able to finance the premium amount if you meet the eligibility requirements. You must be employed full-time, have a permanent address, and be able to show financial responsibility for the bond in its entirety before you can apply for financing. Once it has been established that you are eligible for financing, the bail bond agent will prepare the necessary paperwork and get the process started. It's important to remember that even though, you have paid off the premium, you will still be responsible for the full amount of the bond during the time the case is open. If you choose to revoke the bond before you pay off the premium, you will still be obligated to pay the rest of the premium in full due to it being a mandated fee that has been put in place by the state.
