You’ve been handcuffed and booked into jail. Now what? Now is the time to call a Rush bail bondsman agent. The hours following an arrest can be terrifying. They don’t have to be with someone you can trust by your side. If you want out of jail as soon as possible, call Rush Bail Bonds as soon as possible.
To make this as easy as possible we need a few key pieces of information:
- Full legal name of the person in jail.
- Where the accused is being held.
- The inmate’s booking number.
How quickly can you get me out of here?
Great question. By working with an experienced bail bondsman agent, we can get you out from behind bars within 24 hours. Before that can happen you’ll need to make a first appearance in front of a judge. By law, you will have this court hearing within 24 hours of your arrest.
Based on your charges and criminal history, a judge will determine the dollar amount you must pay to get out of jail. This is called bail. Bail can be very very expensive and that’s why it makes more financial sense to work with a professional bail bondsman agent. We charge 10-15% of the total bail amount to get you out of jail. So, if bail is set at $10,000 your share would be between $1,000 and $1,500. We offer flexible payment options to ease the financial burden of an arrest. We also accept collateral such as a car, house or other valuable item. If you’re unable to sign our contract, we will ask for a co-signer such as your parents or spouse. Once you’ve entered into a contract with bail agents, we work quickly with the judicial system to secure your release. By agreeing to a contract with us, you are responsible to how up to court when required. If you have a co-signer, they are also accepting full responsibility for you once your out of jail.
I’m out of jail! Thank you. Now what?
When you post bond, there are rules you must follow as part of your release. You must be present at every court hearing until your case is resolved. If you don’t show up to court, then Rush Bail Bonds is responsible for the total amount of the bail. This means you or your co-signer is responsible for the bail. In the event we can not locate you and bring you back to jail, we will begin the process of collecting the collateral you or a loved one put down to post bail. This means your home could be auctioned off or your car repossessed.
Bottom line: show up to court!
Depending on the charges, a court case can last anywhere from a few months to a few years. Get a pocket calendar to keep track of all the court hearings. It can be overwhelming, but if you stay organized you can get through this! Once your case has been resolved, your contract with a licensed bail bondman agent is terminated too. We are no longer liable for you and that means your co-signer is off the hook too.
