Savannah Bond Hearing Lawyers

Get Over 40 Years of Collective Experience on Your Side

A bond hearing is held in front of a judge to determine if bonds can be issued for specific crimes. This type of hearing is different from an arraignment because the purpose is to decide if the judge should issue a bond for the defendant’s release. Hiring an experienced criminal defense lawyer can help people obtain a bond in Georgia and start building a defense against the charges they face.

If you or a loved one has recently been arrested, Schneider Lerch Bronston, LLC can help you prepare for your bond hearing and petition to get your released from custody until your trial. With over a four decades of combined experience, our Savannah bond hearing attorneys can investigate your arrest, collect all the evidence and facts, and develop an effective and personalized defense strategy to help you avoid remaining in jail during the remainder of the case. Our attorneys have handled thousands of cases and maintain a 9.5 Avvo Rating.

Bond Hearings in Georgia

Essentially, a bond is a collateral that secures a promise to appear in court after being released from custody. The collateral is often in the form of money, valuable assets like a home or vehicle, or a security deposit.

Common examples of bonds include:

  • Cash bond - A person--whether it’s the defendant or a loved one pays the bond upfront in cash. If the defendant appears in all court hearings, the money will be given back after the case is resolved.
  • Property bond - A person’s property will be the collateral to obtain the defendant’s promise to appear in all court hearings.
  • Surety bond - A bail bond company posts the bond on the defendant’s behalf, generally charging a fee of approximately 10 to 15 percent of the bond amount prior to posting the rest to the jail for the defendant’s release.
  • Own recognizance - When the judge releases the defendant on their own recognizance, there is no payment required.

Failure to appear for a hearing (FTA) can lead to a bench warrant for your arrest and spend the remainder of your case in jail. Additionally, you will automatically forfeit your bond.
