Bonding Information

There are four (4) ways to bond someone out of jail. You will need to come to the Forsyth County Jail to complete the full process of bonding an inmate. Once you enter the main lobby at the Verterans Memorial intersection, walk straight back to the back of the lobby (where the televisions are located). Walk around the corner to the window and someone will assist you.

The four (4) ways to bond someone out of jail are:

  • Approved Bonding Companies - Visit our Jail Bonds Webpage to see approved Bonding Companies. There is also a large screen mounted at the back of the jail lobby that displays approved bonding agencies. Select one of the agencies and contact the bonding company of your choice. Please do not ask staff for a reference, we are restricted by state law, and cannot refer bonding companies. A representative from the company will meet you in the jail lobby and guide you through the process. Please be aware, bonding companies are allowed by law to charge up to 15% of the total bond amount, for their fee.

  • Pay with Cash - The Forsyth County Jail accepts cash only. Money orders, business checks, and personal checks are not accepted at the Forsyth County Jail.

  • Property Bonds - For real property within Forsyth County, bring the property deed and most recent paid property tax bill to the Forsyth County Jail. (Person(s) listed on the deed must be present with a State issued I.D., AND taxes must be paid in full & up to date, to be used for bonding process.) Only real property will be used and the appraised tax value is all that will be considered chattel, such as a mobile home, will be deducted from the overall assessment. The value of unencumbered equity must be double the price of the bond to be accepted.

    If you reside outside of Forsyth County, you may use your property, but you will need to contact your local Sheriff’s Office. They will contact the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office for our requirements, process the bond, and then give you a sealed envelope. DO NOT open the envelope. It must be sealed for us to accept the bond.

    **Please be aware that property bonds may take several days to process. A deed search will be conducted and a Lien will be placed on the property until the case is adjudicated.

  • Pay Online or by Phone - Visit Cash Bonds Online and follow the prompts. You can also contact them by calling 888-726-6301. A credit card CANNOT be used if the bond amount exceeds $10,000.
