We provide a variety of flexible options for you or a co-signer to help you secure a surety bond if you cannot pay for the bond yourself or get a PR bond. 

There are 3 ways to post a bail bond in San Antonio TX:

  1. Cash Bonds: The Bexar County Courts set the amount of bail required for someone arrested based on several factors. If you can afford it, a “Cash Bond” can be paid by cashier’s check or money order to the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office directly. If the defendant appears in court as scheduled, and the case is dismissed, the court will issue a refund order payable to the defendant.
  2. Surety Bonds: If you cannot afford to pay for bail yourself, McRae Bail Bonds and other licensed bail bond companies in San Antonio issue Surety Bonds. We will pay the full bail bond amount to the court and you or a co-signer will only have to pay a small % of the full amount as our fee and agree to appear in court as scheduled.
  3. Personal and Pre-Trial Bonds: In some cases a judge will agree to release the defendant from custody on his/her promise to appear in court on the scheduled date. So if it’s a minor offense and you have a clean record you may not need a bail bond in San Antonio TX.
