29 Dec Things You Should Know Before Contacting a Bail Bonds Agency
One of your loved ones has recently been arrested. You decide you want to help them out with bail, but you don’t have the full amount of bail that they require in your bank. When this happens, you are allowed to contact a bail bonds agency on your loved one’s behalf, but before you do so, there are a few things you should know.
The information we’ll need before we can really do anything to help you out is your loved one’s:
- Full name (including their legal middle name)
- What jail they’re being held at
- Their birthdate
As long as you can provide us with this basic information, we can use our own connections and learn your loved one’s booking number and how much bail they require.
The second thing you need to decide before you contact us is if you’re just going on an information-gathering expedition for your loved one or if you’re going to help them come up with the bail money. If you’re helping out, we do require a fee that is 10% of the required bail. You will not get this fee back so before signing a contract with us, you and your loved one will need to decide if and when they will pay you back.
The good news is that you don’t need a prepared speech when you contact us nor do you need to understand how the bail bond process works. Our goal is that by the end of the consultation you’ll know everything you need to about the bail bond process and be confident in your decision to either help or refuse to help your friend.
