What to do before you contact a bail bonds company?
First of all, you have to know the exact location where the person is detained. Next, you have to acquire the person’s booking number. Lastly, find out the amount of bail required to get the person out of jail.
THE BAIL BOND PROCESS WORKS LIKE THIS:
- The bail bonds company will contact the jail facility to collect the exact bail information and make the necessary arrangements to get the person out.
- We will then contact you once everything is settled.
- You will be asked to pay 10% of the bail amount.
- Our bail bond experts will ask for specific information about the person who is in custody such as his or her full name, date of birth, the exact location where the person is detained, the charge, the booking number, and the amount of money needed to get the arrested out of jail.
How long does it take for the accused to get out of jail?
Usually, it takes less than an hour to complete the paperwork. However, this still depends on the jail. Some get released within an hour, while some can take up to 48 hours.
So a loved one is arrested but you don’t have the money upfront to pay for the entire bond amount what do you do? One of the best solutions is to hire a bail bonds company to help you out. Our bail bonds company will charge you with only 10% of the amount of bail that you need to get a person out of jail. We will take care of the paperwork just as long as we have all the documents that we need, which will make the whole bail bonds process run smoothly.
How do you pay the premium?
We accept cash or credit card. If you have a different option to pay, please contact your bail bond agent.
What if the accused doesn’t plan to show up for court trial after posting the bond?
We fully expect you to attend your court proceedings. However, if you get an inkling that the accused will skip his court trial, contact us immediately so we can offer you some options.
Do you get your money back once the case has been resolved?
You will not get your premium back. The premium that you paid set the person out of custody, which makes it fully earned by the accused.
How is the bail amount determined?
A judge will set the bail amount for the defendant. He or she will consider plenty of factors such as the evidence, the seriousness of the charge(s), and the person’s character and history.
