How do bail bonds work in Vermont?
Upon arrest anywhere in the state of Vermont, a person must be processed at the local county jail. To be released from jail, a few steps must occur, including being “booked in” and posting bail. When the bail bond amount is decided, a bail bond agent can be hired to post the bond at the local jail.
The release process begins after bail is posted and typically can take anywhere from one to two hours to complete. When calling a bondsman in Vermont, make sure you have the name of the person that was arrested, which jail they are held at, the charge against them, and their date of birth. This will help begin the bail bond process and speed up release of the arrested person.
While you can opt for a cash bond in Vermont, you may not want to risk the full amount of bail, unless you are bailing yourself out and have the money readily available.
If you decide to hire a bail bondsman, many bail bonds agents are available 24/7 and can pick you up from jail. Payment plans are often available depending on the situation.
Please keep in mind that more is at line than just the 10% bail fee in Vermont. Bail bondsmen will often ask for collateral in case you skip bail, so they can technically come for the full value of the bail amount, plus a warrant for your arrest will be issued. Besides the fees associated, Vermont bondsmen often put other rules in place after you are released from jail – read more below.

How much is bail in Vermont?
Vermont is a 10% fixed rate state, which means you will pay a $100 fee on a $1,000 bail bond. This $100 fee is non-refundable. If you need a large bail bond to be released, your bail bondsman may demand a GPS tracking device to ensure your whereabouts.
There may also be a need to put up property or other assets if the bail bond is significant in value and you are a flight risk. While these add to the total cost and risk of the bail bond, it allows the bail bondsman to feel confident in your ability to attend all court dates.
