Yes. Typical bail bond contracts typically include a clause that you must sign permitting the bounty hunters to track you down and detain you. In some situations, bounty hunters are more powerful than the police, even when it comes to breaking into your home if they know you are there. Additionally, bounty hunters are permitted to traverse state lines and may possess a firearm for self-defense.
How Long Will Bounty Hunters Be Searching For You?
Bounty hunters may spend 1 to 6 months, sometimes even longer, looking for you.
How Much Money Do Bounty Hunters Make?
Depending on the seriousness of the case, the risk involved, or the length of the search, bounty hunters may receive 10–20% or even more of the amount paid to the bondsman.
