If the defendant has made all of their court appearances, charges have been dropped, or has been found innocent, they will be refunded some or all of their bail money. After closing the case, the judge will issue an order for the return of the money. If you used a bail bondsman, they will keep their part of the fee—this usually ranges from 10% to 30% of the overall bail amount. Bail bondsmen do not return any money for bonding out the defendant, regardless of whether they’re found guilty or innocent.

Is Bail Money Refunded if I Am Found Guilty?

If you’re found guilty and convicted of the crime you posted bail for, the bail money will be applied to court fees, which means you may not get all of it back. In cases like this, the government will usually retain three percent of the bail.

Do I Get Bail Money Back if the Charges Are Dropped?

If charges have been dropped, then you can expect to get some or all of your bond money back. If it was paid directly to the court, you’ll receive a full refund. If a bail bond agent was involved, expect your refund to be reduced as a result of their fees.

How Long Does It Take to Get My Bond Money Back?

Once your case is over and the judge has issued an order for the return of your bail, it can take up to six or seven weeks for it to be refunded.
