Now I would like to explain how a Brevard County Bail Bond actually works. There are two types of bonds here in Florida. The first is called a cash bond which needs to be paid directly to the jail and is seldom used unless dealing with a purge or child support case. The second is called a surety bond or bail bond, this is the process I’d like to talk about. A Bail Bond is a bond executed by a defendant who has been arrested, together with other persons as sureties, naming the sheriff or marshal as obligee. Meaning a contractual agreement is made with the indemnitor, or person requesting the bond, and the bail agent. The indemnitor is then responsible for the entire amount of the bond until the court case is completely finished or discharged. A bail bond company may only charge a 10% premium fee for their services unless in the case of a Federal Bond or Immigration Bond. This ten percent is nonrefundable and is kept as payment for the bonding process. After a Brevard County Inmate has been released under these conditions, they will be required to fill out a defendant application either by coming into the office or online. Listed below are a few helpful phone numbers, addresses as well as a map listing that may help you with any questions you have regarding the court procedure followed by some frequently asked questions. We appreciate your trust in Coastal Bail Bonds!
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is collateral and is it necessary for a bail bond in Brevard County?
A: Collateral is something of value which the principal or indemnitor puts up to protect the surety.

A: A fugitive is one who flees; always used in law with the implication of a flight, evasion or escape from some duty or penalty or from the consequences of a misdeed. Also, one who hides within the jurisdiction of the court to avoid prosecution.
Q: Can a defendant leave the state while out on a bail bond in Brevard County?
A: Yes and no. If a judge orders a defendant to stay within the jurisdiction then they cannot leave whenever then like. If such stipulations have not been ordered by the judge then the bondman may allow a defendant to leave the state as long as it is approved ahead of time
Q: What is premium?

A: No. Each case is handled in a different way depending on a number of things. Most bail bonds can be posted with minimal paperwork and the premium payment. If you have a question concerning collateral please call on of our bondmen and they will be more than happy to review your case with you.
Q: Can a person post a bail bond without a bondsman?
A: Yes an individual can post what is called a cash bond. Cash bonds must however be paid in full to the jail in order for release. Once this money is paid it will not be returned in full and any compensation will be given only after the court case is completed.
Q: Can a bail bond be posted on an inmate in Brevard County from another city or state?
A: Absolutely! We understand that all arrestees are not from the area and some may be visiting from out of state. As long as a person qualifies for the bond then all paperwork can be handled in a matter of minutes and all that is required is a registered email address.
Q: What is first appearance?
A: Once an accused individual, or defendant, is arrested for allegedly committing a crime, there are certain legal proceedings that'll occur. The defendant will be booked by the police. This means that he'll be fingerprinted, photographed and put in a holding cell. The defendant will remain in the cell until his initial appearance. An initial appearance is the first proceeding in front of a judge.
Q: Does a defendant have to supply his or own lawyer?
A: Not necessarily. If a defendant does not hire a private attorney then a court appointed attorney will represent them in the case. This is called a public defender.

A: A capias is another work for warrant, which is a written order commanding a law enforcement officer to seize the named person to answer for some offense.

Once an individual is arrested, it may actually take a while before they’re booked and thrown into jail. This is when they’ll have a bail amount set that they can talk to a bail bondsman about. The bail bondsman will arrange for the bond and will usually show up at the jail to post bail. If someone else is providing the bond, they’ll have to meet the bondsman at the jail house.
The defendant will be released from jail on their own recognizance once they’ve posted bail. There may be conditions on their release. For instance, they may have to check in with their bail bondsman or the courts at certain intervals to verify that they’re not trying to skip. The bail bonds agency may well contact the defendant to remind them of their court date in advance of the day that it’s happening, to make sure that the defendant will show up.
If you violate the terms of your bail bond, you’ll be arrested and thrown back in jail. This is why it’s so important to stay in touch with the bail bondsman. In most states, the bondsman does have the authority to go after and apprehend someone who has skipped out on their bail. This is usually done with the assistance of bounty hunters and those professionals are very good at finding people and hauling them in. Make sure you don’t violate your bail bond in any way.
Payment for the bond is always due before it is issued and the person bailed out of jail. Collateral may be accepted by some bail bondsmen if the amount of the bail happens to be very high. The fee is usually somewhere between 10% and 20% of the total amount of bail ordered for the defendant and, once that money is paid, the defendant can post bail and get out of jail.
Bail bonds are actually very easy to understand. Once you show up for your court date, your bond is exonerated and your obligation to the bail bond agent is exonerated.

Brevard County Court and Jail History
Brevard County has centralized most of its courts in Viera which try almost all types of cases. The Titusville courthouse services cases arising in the northern parts of the county while the Melbourne courthouse provides services to the cases in the southern part of the county. Brevard County elects a sheriff, police chiefs are appointed by the cities and towns and some volunteers work alongside paid professionals.
The Brevard County jail was constructed in 1976 and since has been voted on four occasions to be expanded and on all four occasions has been rejected. However a less expensive “hardened tent” Was constructed to help with over population.
