When Do I Need A Bail Bonds Agent?
A bail bond agent is needed anytime a “bond” is set. A cash bond is secured with cash, while a surety bond requires a promissory note and an agreement between the defendant, the court, the cosigner, the bail bond agent and the insurance company that offers that ensures the promissory note. In order for you to be eligible for a bond, you must be reputable and have a steady form of income that can be used to secure the bond if it is forfeited for any reason. Your bail bond agent will be able to guide you through the process and ensure that you understand what it means to obligated through a bail bonds contract.
How Does Bail Work?
Unless you have been assigned a cash bond, you will need to hire a bail bonds agent. Cash bonds are rather low and must be paid in full, in cash at the jail in order to obtain early release. If you have been assigned a surety bond, it means you must pay a portion of the total bond amount to be released from jail. In addition to the 10% premium, you must also agree to attend all future court hearings associated with the case and receive no further charges while you're out on bond. You must also stay within the jurisdiction of the courts.
If you do not appear or leave the area without the court's permission, your bond may be revoked and you will be returned to jail. If you skip bail and are not returned to jail within 30 days of an arrest warrant being issued for your arrest, your co-signer will be responsible for the full amount of the bail. Skipping bail calls for the forfeiture of your bond. If you can prove that missing court was unintentional, the judge may be lenient and reinstate your bond. A new court date will be set and you will be released much like the first time you bonded out of jail.
What Happens After I'm Released on Bond?
Once you've been released on bond, you will be able to do many of the things you did prior to your arrest. Most importantly, you will be able to return home and continue to go to work and care for your family. During this time, you are also encouraged to hire an attorney and start to build your case. Having a reputable attorney in your corner in the courtroom is just as beneficial as having a qualified bail bond agent by your side while you are out on bond. Our goal is to make sure you fulfill your obligations and are able to care for your family at the same time.
