When accused of a crime, it can be difficult to know what your rights are and how you can move forward. When bail is set, most people don’t have the funds readily available to post it. This means they’ll have to stay behind bars as they continue to await their trial. Understanding if 24/7 bail bonds are right for you can help you make the most informed decision possible.
When working with a bail bond company, it’s important to prepare all pertinent information prior to calling them. Be sure to have the accused full name, the jail they’re currently being detained in, their booking number, as well as the charges. This will allow the company to be able to go about the process more quickly.
Next, it’s important to learn about the terms of the contract the bail bondsman will offer. Most companies require an initial downpayment of at least 10% to 20% of the tail bail cost. They will also require some form of collateral, such as any high-value assets in your possession. If you skip your court date, the bail bond company will repossess the collateral and additional legal action may be taken against you.
