Fines & Fees
If the Court has ordered a surety bond to be posted, you will need to contact a bail bondsman. If the Court has ordered a cash bond, it is paid at the Sheriff Department.
To receive a refund of bond money, you must:
- Get a release from the Court where your case was filed.
- Come to the Cass County Clerk's office located on the fourth floor of the courthouse. We are open Monday - Friday, 8am -4pm. We are closed on weekends and federal holidays. You must show a valid photo ID.
- Refund checks will not be written until the next business day.
