Bail Bondsman vs. Bounty Hunter: What’s the Difference?

A bounty hunter and a bail bondsman are similar, but still very different in their own ways. When someone is arrested, they might need a bail bondsman to help pay their bail and get back to freedom while the await trial. If you gain freedom using a bail bondsman and skip out on court – then a bounty hunter is sent your way.

While a bail bondsman and a bounty hunter work with each other complimentary within the industry, they are vastly different occupations. Bail bondsman work with bounty hunters in the event of someone jumping bail. A bail bondsman is on the law side of things, and bounty hunters enforce the order side; bail bondsmen are subject to federal rules and regulations to ensure the clients bond with the court, and bounty hunters are subject to state laws regarding civil and criminal recovery of a client if they decide to not show up to court.
