How do I get my daughter out of jail as quickly as possible? When you work with an experienced Rush bail bond agent we promise to get her out within 24 hours. We are the jail bond company with the experience you need in this difficult time.  By law, an inmate is required to make their first appearance before a judge within 24 hours of being booked into jail. At this hearing, you daughter will hear the charge (s) against here, a judge will explain her right to a speedy trial and her right to have an attorney. A judge will also set a bail amount. Bail is what you must pay to get out of jail. It’s like an insurance policy to make sure once your daughter is out of jail, she returns to court for her hearings and trial. A judge determines the bail based on the alleged crime and if she is a public safety risk if released.

What are the jail bond types?

You have several options to get your daughter out of jail. Your options all depend on the crime she’s accused of committing and how much cash you have on hand. Below we’ve outlined the most popular jail bond types.

Cash Bail

This is the most straightforward of jail bond types, but it can be the most expensive for you. It’s simple, if a judge sets your daughter’s bail at $10,000 then you pay $10,000 cash to the courts to get her out. You can often get this money back at the end of the case, which can often take months. However, if your daughter skips court hearings, then you may not get it back.

Surety Bonds

This jail bond type involves a third party, such as Rush Bail Bonds. By working with a professional and trustworthy bail bond agent, you only have to pay 10%-15% of the total bail amount. So, if bail is set at $10,000, you would pay Rush Bail Bonds $1,000-$1,5000. We then contract with the court to secure your daughter’s release. To insure the remaining balance, we often require collateral as part of our contract. We accept anything of substantial value such a car, home, jewelry and even stocks. If your daughter does not appear before court as she is required to, we can collect the collateral you agreed to.

Property bonds

This jail bond type is where you sign over a piece of land or a home to get your loved one out of jail. The value of the property must be equal to or greater than the bail amount. The home or land may need to be assessed before it can qualify to be used as bond.
