What is a Bail Bond?

A bond is used as a guarantee that the full bail amount will be paid by the defendant. If the defendant does not have the needed means, a relative or friend can assume financial responsibility in most cases.

After someone has been arrested and booked as a suspect in a criminal case, the individual will have bail amount set by the courts. This amount can vary greatly depending on the severity of the crime and the defendant’s criminal history. By setting bail, the court is ensuring that a defendant will appear at all scheduled court dates and legal appointments.

If you find yourself in need of different types of bail bonds, let us put our expertise to work for you. We start by taking down basic information like the name of the defendant and the jail or city where he/she is being held. Once we have this information, we will work with you and the legal system to secure the jail release of the defendant by delivering a bond to the court in the full amount of the bail that was set. Please note that depending on financial circumstances, we may require either collateral or a co–signer in order to post the bond.

Once we’ve helped secure release, we’ll work to ensure that the defendants are always up to date on what they need, where they need to be, and when they need to be there as the trial progresses. Most people don’t have much experience with the legal system beyond what they’ve seen on television, and we’re here to ensure that you’re always on top of what’s going on.

In Order to Secure a Bail Bond,
We Will Need the Following:

Two (2) Forms of Valid Identification:
(a) Driver’s License
(b) State Picture ID
(c) Credit/Check Card
(d) Work ID
(e) Social Security Card

Proof of Income (e.g. A recent pay stub, or first page of your 1040 tax form if self-employed.)

Proof of Address (e.g. A recent utility bill or phone bill in your name.)

Transfer Bonds

These bonds are held for someone who is held in a state other than the location where the bond is initially written or executed. Transfer bonds allow individuals to post bond through their local agents or transfer to a location where the individual is currently being held.

Surety Bonds

In some situations, people cannot come up with enough money to post bail. During these times, surety bonds are the right solution. Your bond provider will promise to pay a certain amount if you do not appear in court. You simply pay a small percentage of the owed amount.
