In Illinois, bail bonds must be obtained through the county or city rather than through any commercial situations. This state is a non commercial bail bonded state in that it does not allow for any commercial establishment to post bail for a criminal defendant. In this case, individuals must provide the funding for their bail through their own means or they are to be kept in jail until the case or trial has been completed. Illinois bail bonds laws do not allow for bail bondsmen to provide bail to these individuals.
The person for whom bail has been set shall execute the bail bond and deposit with the clerk of the court before which the proceeding is pending a sum of money equal to 10% of the bail, but in no event shall such deposit be less than $25.
If you are looking for a bondman in the cities of Chicago, Aurora, Rockford or Springfield please have in mind that surety bail is not allowed in the State of Illinois.
