What is bail and how does this work?
That sounds too good to be true. Bail is essential an insurance policy that ensures you or a loved one will be present for future court hearings. Here’s how it works: By law, an inmate must make a first court appearance before a judge within the first 24 hour of their arrest. During the first court appearance, a judge will determine how much money an inmate must pay to get out of jail. This is called bail. The judge determines the bail amount based on several factors including, what the person is accused of, current employment status, criminal history and how likely the accused will appear for future court proceedings. Once bail is set you have a couple options: You can pay cash for the total amount or you can work with an experienced bail bond agent in Birmingham, AL and pay just a fraction of the bail. For example, if your bail is set at $25,000 and you decide to work with professional and licensed bail agent, you pay between $2,500-$3,750. Our bail agents will also need a co-signer and collateral. We accept several types of collateral: jewelry, property, cars and even stocks. Once all the criteria is met, we work with the judicial system in Birmingham, AL to get you or a loved one out as quickly as possible.
What is the collateral for?
If the accused is released from jail and fails to show up to important court hearings, then Rush Bail Bonds and ultimately, the co-signer is responsible for the total bail amount. In the event this happens, bail agents will then begin the process of collecting the collateral posted as part of our contract. This ensures we have a way to pay the bill if the accused doesn’t follow through on their end of the deal. We hope it doesn’t reach this point. Once released it is essential to stay in communication with your attorney. If you need help keeping up to date on your hearings, our bail agents are more than willing to assist you.
