For inmates that are bondable, Fulton County Jail bonding hours are open 24 hours a day. All bonds (per cause number) are required by law to be accompanied with a (5) five dollar fee.
Inmates are given a phone call at the time of their booking and informed of what their bond amount is set at, if they have one at the time of their booking.
Some charges do not have a bond until a "probable cause" comes in from the court or until the judge deems a bond amount.

When a person is brought into the jail on new charges, the officer has 48 hours to get the probable cause signed by a judge. At the time of getting the probable cause signed, the judge can determine a change in the bail amount.
If the person arrested is currently on probation or parole, there will be no bond until the judge determines one. In addition, if the person is currently out on bond for another reason, they will not have a bond until the judge determines one.
