Do you need help with reducing bail or avoiding jail time?

What is Bail?

Bail is an aspect of our legal system via which a person who has been accused, can be released from custody, temporarily. This gives that person the opportunity to continue with their lives and prepare to appear in court. If the person is involved in a criminal case, bail might be in the form of money, real property or even a bail bond. Either of these will have to be posted by the defendant or on behalf of that person. In effect, it is a guarantee of the person’s appearance in court. The accused is guaranteed reasonable bail by the Eighth Amendment of the Constitution of the United States.

What is the Bail Bonds Process?

After any inmate is fully booked, a specific bail amount will be decided for his /her release. Once the bail amount has been ascertained, you are able to call our professional bail bondman, who will then begin this bail bonds process and will help your loved one/ friend “post bail.” A bail agent is an individual who has the permission to solicit & negotiate, as well as affect the undertakings of bail on behalf of the surety insurer.

How Fast Can Someone Get Out of Jail?

If you or a loved one has been arrested and put in jail, your release depends on when you are able to post bail. Bail can either be cash, a bond, or property that an arrested person gives to the court that ensures that he or she will appear in court when ordered to. If they don’t appear, the bail is kept by the court and a warrant may be issued for arrest. So, once you or your loved one can get out of jail as soon as you post bail.

What is the Difference Between Bail Bond Amount & Premium?

Bail bond amount is the entire amount of bail that the court sets. On the other hand, premium is the actual dollar amount that is charged by a bail service for providing you with the pre-trial release service. Typically, this premium is 10 percent of the total bail amount. For instance, if the actual bail amount is $20,000, then the premium would be $2,000.

Who is a Co-Signer or Guarantor?

A co-signer or guarantor is the person/s who is willing to take responsibility of the defendant while that person is out on bail and he/she also co-assumes financial responsibility. This includes guarantee of the entire bail bond amount.
