Bail Bonds Process

Bail Bond Process


Setting your loved one free and understanding the Bail Bond process in Wake County is the first step.

The bail bond process begins with the arrest of a suspect or defendant. In North Carolina, individuals are subject to arrest for a number of different reasons. These can include:

  • Spousal Abuse/Domestic Violence

  • Failure to Appear in Court

  • Possession of Drugs or Paraphernalia

  • Traffic Offenses/DWI

  • The defendant is brought to the local jail following the arrest, where the accused is processed and then presented to a Judge ( or magistrate).


    Bail Processing


    Defendants arrested will be photographed, fingerprinted, and given conditions of release from a judge.

    At the local jail, every defendant is then processed (also known as “booked”) according to the jail procedures of that jurisdiction. In general, the defendant is fingerprinted and photographed for proper identification. Then the accused may need to surrender personal items over to the jail. He/she may also be searched for contraband.
