Must Know Info: Bail Bonds

 

When it comes to posting bail many people have many questions as it isn't something that people generally need to do on a regular basis. Before posting bail it is important to gather as much information as possible. The following are a few things you may not know about bail bonds, but the information should be comforting. If you have any other questions don't hesitate to contact your local bail bond agency.

Bail bonds can be used or any crime

Federal law states that bail is a right provided to all citizens of the United States. This means that now matter what your friend or loved one is being charged with they can be bailed out with the use of a bail bond. However, if a judge deems a person a high risk to society or a flight risk they do have the ability to deny bail, however this is only used in the most extreme cases.

Collateral isn't always necessary

If you need to post bail for a friend or relative and it requires a high dollar amount sometimes you may be asked to provide collateral, such as putting up a vehicle, in case the defendant flees. However this need will vary on a case by case basis so be sure to talk to your local bail bondsman about this.

Thankfully a professional bail bond agency will be able to work with you to figure out a way to get your loved one out of jail fast.
