When a person is arrested, most of the time they are given a bail amount that can be paid to secure their release. This allows them to leave the jail and return home until their hearings are completed, provided they attend all of their hearings and do not get arrested a second time. However, many people cannot afford the bail amount. In these cases, they’re going to need to get help from a bail bond agent.
A friend or family member should find a bail bond agent that can help them 24 hours a day . The friend or family member is going to have to agree to the terms of the bond and pay a percentage of the bond amount or give the bondsman collateral. Typically, the terms of the bond state that the person must attend all of their hearings and they cannot be arrested again before the hearings are completed. The person obtaining the bond will need to pay up to 10% of the bail amount or give the bondsman collateral that’s worth more than the full bail amount.
Once the friend or family member has agreed to the bond and has given the bondsman the money or collateral, the bondsman is going to pay the full amount of bail to the jail. This should be done quickly and, depending on how busy the jail is, the person should be out of jail in as little as a few hours. If the person adheres to the bond agreement, the bondsman will receive their money back and the friend or family member will owe nothing further. If they used collateral, they’ll receive their collateral back. However, if the person doesn’t follow all of the terms, they may be rearrested. The friend or family member will owe the full amount or forfeit their collateral.
If your friend or family member has been arrested and needs to be bailed out of jail, it’s possible to get help from a bail bond agent any time, day or night.
