Bail is the amount of money a judge believes will be enough to make someone come to court when they are suppose to. Bond is how the bail money is guaranteed to the Court.
You must have cash, a cashier’s check or money order to post the cash bond, a non-refundable $10 bond fee, and a non-refundable $30 booking fee. Cashier’s checks and money orders need to be payable to the Weld County Sheriff’s Office. Tell us if you want your name on a cash bond you post so the money will be returned to you when the Court releases the bond. If the person does not go to court when they are supposed to, the Court can keep the cash. Make sure you understand the risk!
Surety bonds must be done by a bondsperson. To find a bondsperson, look in the yellow pages of a telephone book under "Bail Bonds". Bondspersons usually charge a fee depending on how much bail is needed. These fees are not refundable.
