Answer: A Delaware bail bond is a guarantee from a state licensed bail bail bondsman that is backed by an insurance company. It is technically referred to as a surety bond and represents a promise that a defendant will appear for courts dates and comply with any conditions of his or her release. The Delaware bail bond agent guarantees to the court payment of the full amount of the bond if the defendant fails to appear for their scheduled court appearances.
