When do I need a jail bond company?
You may be asking yourself “how do jail bonds work?” You will need a jail bond company if you don’t have all the cash to cover the total bail set by a judge. Depending on the crime, alleged offenders sometimes will be released without bail and on their own recognizance. This means they are free to leave the jail after being booked. Although, the accused still has to sign a document promising to will be present for future court hearings. More often than not though, you will have to pay something to get out of jail. Bail is essentially an insurance policy guaranteeing you will show up to future court proceedings.
How is my bail determined?
A judge sets your bail based on a variety of factors: charges against you, criminal history, how likely you are to leave town and skip court hearings, community involvement and if you are employed. Taking all these factor into consideration, a judge will come up with your bail amount. There are different jail bond types, but they work basically the same.
But, my bail is set at $25,000!!!! How am I going to afford this? Take a deep breathe. It’s going to be okay. When you work with a professional jail bond company, you only need to come up with a small percentage of the total bail amount. Here’s how it works: If your bail is set at $25,000, you will pay 10%-15% of the total amount to Rush Bail Bonds. This is a non-refundable fee. Once the fee is paid, our experienced bail bond agents work with the courts to secure your release. We often require you post collateral to make up for the rest of the bail amount. We accept anything of value for collateral, including property, bank accounts and vehicles. We only collect the collateral if the defendant fails to show up to court. If the accused does not make court appearances, they will face new charges and be responsible for the total bail amount. By posting collateral, we have a source of income to pay for the entire bail if the defendant doesn’t follow through with the terms of their release. No one is ever financially prepared for an arrest. We understand. The last thing we want you to worry about is money. So, if you’re still struggling to pay our jail bond fee please let us know and we can walk you through several flexible payment options.
