Posting Bond

Before you post a bond, you should be aware of the following:

If you are able to recover your bond money, it can only be returned by the court that has jurisdiction in the case.

Circuit Court: 227 W. Michigan, Kalamazoo 383-8950
8th District North: 227 W. Michigan, Kalamazoo 384-8171
8th District South: 7810 Shaver Road, Portage 384-8171
Probate Court: 227 W. Michigan, Kalamazoo 383-8666
Juvenile Court: 1400 Gull Road, Kalamazoo 385-6000

To comply with Public Act 2002, Act No.631, House Bill 5047, a $10.00 cash only processing fee will be collected for anyone posting bond on a warrant arrest, post arraignment, or surety bonds.

Enrolled House Bill 4517 allows the Sheriff's Office to collect a $12.00 booking fee when a person is admitted into the jail. This is in addition to the $10.00 bond-processing fee, which is already being collected. The booking fee revenue collected is used for training and programs under the local corrections officers training act.

The Sheriff's office cannot make change. Correct bill denominations are needed for each of the above fees.

For bonds, we will accept up to $1.00 in coins, with no more than $.25 in pennies. The balance must be cash or surety. No personal checks, cashiers checks or money orders will be accepted.

Before signing the bond paper, READ the section marked TERMS AND CONDITIONS!

Be aware some or ALL of the bond money may be used to pay for fines and/or costs. The full amount may not be returned. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the bond, or if you do not understand the procedure, you must contact the Court where the bond will be processed.
