21 Jun What Happens During a Bail Consultation?
Don’t underestimate the importance of a good bail consultation. The consultation allows you and us to get to know one another and decide if we’re a good fit for your needs.
Several things take place during a free bail bonds consultation.
We Collect Your Information
It doesn’t matter if you’re contacting us about yourself or if you’re inquiring about a loved one, the first thing we do is collect some personal information.
The information we require includes the following:
- The full legal name of the person who requires the bail bond
- The name of the jail they’re currently being held at
- Their booking/report number
- The charges that have been filed against them
- The size of the bail bond they require
Once we have this information, we will be able to learn more about any terms, conditions, and restrictions connected to your release on bail.
The conversation doesn’t stop once we’ve collected the first wave of basic information. We will also want to know some of the same things the judge likely inquired about during your arraignment. We will ask about your community ties if you’re employed, and what your criminal history is like, particularly regarding how reliable you’ve been about attending past court dates.
If you’re calling about a recently arrested loved one, we will want to know your relationship with the individual and if you are willing to serve as a co-signer.
We Discuss the Contract
We require that all of our clients sign a contract. This contract outlines any restrictions you agree to follow while on a bail bond. It serves as a promise from you that you’ll attend all of your court dates. If you cannot pay our fee in one payment, the contract will also outline your payments and when they are due. If you’re happy with the arrangement, Long Beach Bail Bonds will sign the contract, and we’ll start putting together the bail bond.
Other Issues that are Addressed During the Consultation
Some other things will come up during the consultation. These issues include:
- Whether you’ll need a co-signer
- How our zero down, zero interest bail bond payment plan works
- How you can communicate with us while you’re out on bail
- The importance of letting us know if anything changes in your life while you’re out on a bail bond
- Whether you’ll need collateral and what you can use
What You’ll Like About the Consultation
The two most obvious things you’ll enjoy about our consultation process is that it’s free and that consultations are available 24/7. You’ll also enjoy that instead of an automated system or chatbot, every single one of our consultations is handled by a live person with a great deal of experience with bail bonds.
It isn’t until you’re involved with the consultation that you’ll fully understand how nice it is to talk to someone who is willing to talk you through the entire process and patiently answer all of your questions.
