Cash Bail Bonds in Yavapai County
Yavapai County bail bonds can be posted at the Yavapai County Jail by either paying the full amount of bail in cash or by buying a surety bond available through a local Yavapai County bondsman.
Sometimes the Court does not offer a choice as to which type of bond must be posted to release an inmate. Occasionaly the Court orders the bond to be paid as “cash only”. Cash only bonds can be Appearance Bonds, wherein as long as the Defendant appears to each of his/her hearings the cash will be returned to the bond poster, or they can be “Purge Bonds, in which the cash will be forfeited and retained by the Court to cover fines, restitution, or fees owed by the Defendant.
Be sure to consult with Cash-Only Bail Bonds™ when thinking about posting a cash bond. We thoroughly research whether the cash bond is an Appearance Bond or a Purge Bond.
Purge Bonds will only be posted by us if you are providing your cash or charging the full bail amount on a credit card. Cash Appearance bonds can be posted with either your cash or ours.
If you provided Cash-Only Bail Bonds™ with the full amount of bail for an Appearance Bond, you will receive your bail refund typically within a month after the Court has finished with the case and has exonerated the bond. With Purge Bonds you will never receive a refund as the Court forfeited the bond to pay for the Defendant’s court obligations.
