Processing a Bond


Normally, the processing period is 21 business days (excluding weekends and holidays) from the date when the bond is presented to the Clerk's Office.  Refund checks are mailed to the address indicated on the bail bond form.

If a person requests to change the address for the bond refund, a valid piece of identification and a piece of mail indicating the address where you wish to have the bond check sent is required.  The Clerk's Office will complete a Change of Address Affidavit at the Richard J. Daley Center, 50 West Washington, Room 1006 based upon the information provided.
