Understanding How Bail Works
Before an inmate can be released from jail, they have to be eligible for bail. The judge makes this decision based on certain factors: the severity of the crime, how many previous offenses the inmate has, whether or not the inmate is a flight risk. Usually, the judge will agree to set a bond amount at the inmate’s first appearance in court, which occurs in the hours following the arrest. The inmate or the person helping can either pay the bond amount in full with cash or talk to a bondsman about surety. The second is the more common choice, and it’s where our agents come into the picture.
Looking for Fast Bail Bonds?
Most of the time, clients don’t have enough cash on hand to pay the bond in full. So, after receiving our non-refundable 10% of the bond, we post the amount so our clients can get out of jail. It’s called “surety” for a good reason: this payment acts as a kind of insurance that the client will show up at the next court date so that they or their loved one don’t owe us the full amount due to the court. As such, the client needs to make it to that court appearance in order for the bondsman to recover the bail money put up on the client’s behalf. That, in a nutshell, is the bail process. And since things are already tough enough after an arrest, we try to make things easier. Besides our fast service, we offer fair payment plans to make bail affordable. For honest, courteous service, we’re the company to choose.
