Bond Returns

Bail bonds posted in criminal felony cases are refunded through the Circuit Court Clerk's Office. A bail bond is returnable upon:

  • Bond cancellation.
  • Conclusion of the case

With "10% bonds," the County retains 10% of the posted amount.

In order to have a bail bond returned, the individual who posted the bond must appear in the Clerk's Office with valid photo identification. If the bond is returnable, this office will issue the check within 7 to 10 days. If the individual who posted the bond is unable to come to the office, he/she should call (616) 632-5456 to make alternate arrangements.
