Bonds may be posted at the Court's service window during open hours and may only be paid in cash. When the Court is closed, we ask the public to post a defendant's bond at the Albany County Detention Center.

Our office will not give you a cash refund. Refunds will be in the form of a check. Bonds will not be refunded until the case is completely finalized. Refunds are processed on Wednesdays, with checks being sent out on Fridays. 

If the defendant was arrested because of a failure to comply warrant, the money that is posted must go towards the defendant’s fines.

Appearance Bond Conditions

If you need to modify any conditions of your bond, please fill out a Bond Modification Form and submit it to the court during normal business hours.
