If i post bail for my step son, will all of the money be

Resolved Question:

if i post bail for my step son, will all of the money be returned after the trial
Submitted: 7 months ago.
Category: Law
Expert:  Jo C. replied 7 months ago.

It depends.

Are you a surety or a security?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
i'm not sure, whats the difference? he was originally refused bail having not providing documents for a previous issue and i'm led to believe that the solicitor is going to try and appeal
Expert:  Jo C. replied 7 months ago.

Have you had to pay the money in or just show evidence that you have the money?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
no nothing has been paid so far, according to my partner she said that the solicitor had offered £5000 but the judge refused
Expert:  Jo C. replied 7 months ago.

Ok. That is a security.

If he is granted bail and you are a security then you will only lose the money if he breaches bail.

But you should understand that you are taking that risk. If he breaches any condition of bail the money could be lost to you.

Can I clarify anything for you?

ok thanks, ***** ***** he keeps to his bail and is cleared i get my money back. what happens if he keeps to his bail and is found guilty?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 7 months ago.

That isn't your problem.

You are just providing collateral for bail.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
i'll still get my money back either way
Expert:  Jo C. replied 7 months ago.

As long as he does not breach bail.
