How fast can a person get out of jail on a bail bond?
Once the court approves a bail application and sets bail, it will take around two hours for the defendant to get out of jail. Usually, the paperwork takes around half an hour, but the police station or jailhouse where the defendant is held may take longer to process the paperwork.
How much does it cost to bail-out someone from jail?
Bail amounts vary from county to county. However, the sitting judge will consider factors like flight risk, income level, nature of the crime and the defendant's past behavior. Fortunately, only 10 percent of the bail amount is needed to secure a bail bond and get someone out of jail.
Can I use property to bail out someone?
Yes. Some companies accept real estate and automobiles as security. The client only needs to sign an indemnity agreement and a promissory note to use collateral if they do not have ready cash.
Is the bail amount refundable?
It depends. If the client pays the 10 percent premium and signs promissory notes, the latter is returned if the defendant shows up in court as required. However, the premium is the cost of the bail bonding service, and it is not refundable. If the court ordered payment of cash bail, the whole amount will be refunded since bail bonding services are not required.
Are bail bonds a ticket to freedom?
Yes, but the freedom is conditional. The defendant must appear in court when required. The defendant must also not try to contact any organization or individual who is involved in the case.
What happens if I miss the court date?
If you miss the scheduled court proceedings, you may forfeit the bail amount. Since you are a suspect, a bench warrant will be issued so that you can be rearrested. If you know that you are not going to make it to court, it is important that you get in touch with your attorney so that you can secure another court date. Alternatively, you can call us so that we can work with the court to reschedule the court date.
Can anyone secure bail?
No. Public safety and several other factors are usually considered when granting bail, so individuals who are perceived to be a danger to public safety have to remain behind bars until the trial is over.
