When a client calls you, it’s crucial to get all their information. Addresses, date of birth, name, and where they were arrested are crucial to note accurately to succeed as a bail bondsman. The defendant can either pay their full bonds or pay part of it to you as the bail agent. If they choose the latter, you receive half of that payment as a commission.
